For the last month, I’ve been featuring gifts that are a good deal for everyone— gifts that will be fun to give and receive, but more importantly, gifts that are socially just.  It’s really important to me that my gifts aren’t made with slave labor or child labor and that people who make the products I buy aren’t indebted or bonded or forced to work in unsafe conditions.  Here’s a round-up of the gifts I’ve featured, organized by category.  Each link will take you to the original post where you can find out where to buy the gift and more about the product: For Women:     1.  Mission Trade Bracelets 2.  Infinity T-Shirt Scarf 3.  Initial Necklace 4.

A Good Deal for Everyone: Threads 4 Thought Hoodie

I hate buying gifts for my husband. There.  I said it.  But he’s so impossible to buy for.  And if I want to buy him something socially just?  Well, it’s impossible.  Okay, almost impossible.  Because I found these supersoft, comfy, lightweight hoodies from Threads 4 Thought.  And they are not only supersoft and comfy, but they are made from organic cotton that is grown by laborers that are paid a fair wage… which is something that many clothing companies can’t say.   Buy it here....

A Good Deal for Everyone: Initial Necklace

I love buying work from artisans and one of my favorite artisans is the amazingly talented Susie from Filigree Pheasant.  A few years ago, I bought my daughter a beautiful child’s initial necklace from her a few years ago and since then she’s been my go-to source for adorable and inexpensive jewelry.  This necklace is a great gift for Grandma or a mother-in-law or a mom and it’s only $28 which makes it totally affordable.   Order one now....
