Fair Trade Holiday Gifts for Everyone

Over the past week, I’ve shared 6 Do-Good Gifts That Support Children Around the World and 5 Gifts for Animal Loving Do-Gooders, but what do you give folks who aren’t passionate about a particular issue? Check out these Fair Trade gift ideas:

The Fair Trade Federation 2011 Holiday Gift Guide is a 29-page downloadable PDF that features products from numerous Fair Trade organizations like SERRV and Ten Thousand Villages.  It also includes a 2-page list of Fair Trade stores and cafes across the country.

Global Girlfriend’s online store carries women-made, eco-friendly, and Fair Trade clothing, jewelry, soaps, and more. The readers on your list might also enjoy Global Girlfriends: How One Mom Made It Her Business to Help Women in Poverty Worldwide by Global Girlfriend founder, Stacey Edgar.

For the food-lovers on your list, Equal Exchange offers Fair Trade coffee, tea and chocolate, as well as special gift combinations, like their Mind Body Soul Mug gift set.
