Our Favorite Gifts That Give Back

Shop with a purpose this holiday season when you choose gifts that do good. The holidays are around the corner and we know firsthand how stressful it can be to find unique gifts for everyone on your list. Here are some of our favorite products from Fair Trade and sustainably-minded companies that would make extra special gifts.



Fair Trade Stocking Stuffers: Wholesome Organic DelishFish are a favorite treat for both kids and adults. All Wholesome products are made with Fair Trade Certified ingredients which help to make life a little sweeter for farmers and their communities around the globe. Plus, DelishFish are both vegan and gluten-free so they make a great gift for anyone with a special diet.

Looking for nut-free stocking stuffers? Surf Sweets Gummy Bears are simply the best. They’re made in a facility free of the top 10 food allergens and are free from artificial colors and flavors. Surf Sweets is a proud member of 1% for the Planet which means we donate a minimum of 1% of sales to causes that help clean the ocean.

And, if you have someone who loves to bake on your list, we recommend our Baker’s Favorite Gift Set. It includes fair trade baking ingredients from Wholesome and Divine Chocolate.



For Her: A Patagonia cozy fleece pullover that’s made from recycled materials is perfect to snuggle up by the fireplace. Patagonia is both Fair Trade Certified and a fellow member of 1% for the Planet – a growing network of companies who give 1% of their sales to environmental nonprofits.



For Him: Outdoor Voices best-selling CloudKnit Sweats are supposed to be “the softest sweats you’ll ever own.” We love this company’s commitment to creating sustainable products that are meant to last.


Or step up his running game with Adidas Parley Shoes, made with yarn that’s sourced from recycled plastic.




For the little ones: Green Toys makes the most adorable toys that help save the planet. Their Fire Truck is constructed from 100% recycled plastic milk containers that save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. “Put out 3-alarm blazes. Rescue kittens from treetops. Protect the environment from harm. This is just a typical day in the life of the Green Toys™ Fire Truck, the world’s greenest emergency vehicle.” Too cute!



For anyone on your list: We all suffer from dry lips during the cold winter months so Eco Lips Lip Scrub will be a welcome relief. Eco Lips scrubs are made with Wholesome Organic Fair Trade Sugar in addition to other organic ingredients. Plus, their products are vegan and cruelty-free.
