I want to share a great website I found if you still need a few last-minute gifts and want to be eco-friendly and help economies in struggling nations.
This website sells handmade gifts made by local artisans in countries all over the world. It is a "fair trade" group, ensuring that the workers are given a fair wage and healthy, safe, working conditions in their local area.
The prices are great and the items look fantastic. I just purchased 3 gifts on this site, a necklace, a small purse, and a bracelet.
It feels good to know that not only am I choosing unique gifts for the people I love, but that the money I am spending is going to support people who really need it and not just stuff the pockets of large corporations.
Oops. I'm starting to get on a soap box here!
Anyway. Head on over and see what you can find.
