Ethically-Sourced and Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas
FILED IN: Gift Guides

It's no secret that we love spreading the love through artisan gifting. We're talking wedding welcome gifts, client gifts, corporate gifts, bridal party gifts, workshop gifts and more. But we also love the idea of spreading that love even further!
By incorporating fair trade and ethically sourced products in gifts, you can help out the artisans and producers who created the products you are gifting. Beyond fair trade gifts, another way to think about gifts that keep on giving is to gift something that will last and continue to brighten their day, long after the event is over!
While there are numerous ways achieve this, today we are highlighting our favorite three!
Basket or Tote
Since your gift has to go in some sort of beautiful container or packaging, why not make it ethically sourced? We love the idea of gifting a beautiful basket that your loved ones can repurpose beautifully in their home. Maybe you know a local artisan who creates gorgeous woven picnic baskets? Sourcing locally is always a wonderful idea and those baskets would be simply darling to use in bridesmaids gifts!

Personally, I run on coffee and I don’t know what I would do without it! However, half the fun of a delicious latte or cappuccino is the mug you’re drinking it in. I tend to be a bit of a coffee mug aficionado and my collection seems to never cease growing! I love receiving cute coffee mugs as gifts and they make cute, sentimental, and practical keepsakes.
We love the idea of including a coffee mug with a package of delicious, fair trade coffee for your dear friends to enjoy! They will love it as a pick-me-up the week after a fun wedding reception. Even better, they can continue to enjoy the mug for a long time to come!
Some of our favorite selections are...this Bolivian Medium Roast and this patterned, monogramed mug!

Not only will they love your stylish selection, they will be proud of how you’re supporting others. Also, this way your bridesmaids don’t have to worry about what to wear on your big day and they are sure to cherish their gift!
