snowmanHoliday shopping, now that Halloween is over, is in full swing for many retailers across the country. This year, make your holidays even brighter by purchasing gifts that make a difference in the lives of others by seeking out fair trade gifts. Not only will your purchase help those in need around the world, but will show your recipient that you took the time and effort to find that something special for them, too.

Don’t know where to start? The Fair Trade Federation has made it easy with its one-stop shopping gift guide full of gift ideas for absolutely everyone on your list whether it’s a sister, man in your life, children, or even your pet. Gift ideas from under $20 to over $100 – you’ll be hard-pressed NOT to find something for everyone on your list!

Print out the Fair Trade Federation’s Gift Guide, fresh off the press, and start shopping with purpose. Do you have other great holiday gift ideas that give back? Share them – we love to support organizations that give back.
