Yay, it’s time for Mother’s Day yet again! Mother’s Day is May 8, so there’s less than a month to go.
If you’re starting to shop around for a gift that will make your mom (or you!) smile with delight, then there’s no better way to go than to buy fair trade gifts. Buying fair trade gifts is a wonderful idea because not only are you choosing something special and handmade for your mom, but you’re also helping support women all over the world.
So, I wanted to highlight some of my favorite fair trade picks that you could consider for this upcoming Mother’s Day!
1. Our Classy, Fair Trade Felt Bag
This fair trade bag is one of the newest ones we have in for Spring, and I love it! I love the artistic swirled yarn, and the classy black felted flowers on the front. The bag is made from very heavy, felted New Zealand wool, and it’s extremely well made.
We also have a very similar bag (again, brand new here at Earth Divas!) that is perfectly fitted for Spring…
Lovely, right? You can see this wonderful bag here.
And, in my opinion, both of these wonderful fair trade bags are perfect for Mother’s Day!
2. A Lovely Fair Trade Necklace From Ten Thousand Villages
I love Ten Thousand Villages. This amazing store sells fair trade products and is completely staffed with volunteers.
I went to their site searching for gifts, and stumbled onto this amazing Lapis Lazuli necklace. The necklace is fair trade made in the Kathmandu valley in Nepal. Take a look…
3. Fair Trade Spring Scarf
And, one more from Ten Thousand Villages since I love them, and their wonderful fair trade products, so much.
This airy spring scarf is hand woven by women in the Manusha area of Nepal. Take a look…
I’d love all of them!
Good luck with your own shopping and remember, if you can, please consider buying fair trade when buying gifts. They do so much good in the world!
