It seems like we just got done with Christmas, so it’s hard to believe Valentine’s Day is just over two weeks away. Yes, really!
I wanted to compile a quick list of things I’m loving around the Internet right now, with the focus being on things that would make wonderful fair trade and/or upcycled Valentines Day gifts.
1. Woolen Wrapped Bracelet
I lovelovelove this braclet from nanoukiko on Etsy. I actually just bought it for myself a few days ago. It hasn’t yet arrived, but I can’t wait until it does! Most of nanoukiko’s jewelry is made from recycled materials, so you can feel good about this bracelet because it’s likely giving old materials a new life.
At just $14 (with an additional 20% until the end of January), this would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift.
2. A Fair Trade Handbag
I love our new line of fair trade, hand-stitched butterfly bags! This fair trade bag is a great transition bag for Spring. It’s bright, cheerful, and full of flowers and butterflies. It’s a delightful, unique bag and would make a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift!
3. Recycled Gold Earrings
All I have to say about these earrings is, “Yes, Please!” These wonderful earrings are made by ChristineMighlon, and sold in her Etsy store. They’re made with pink druzies (I don’t know what that is, either, but they’re pretty) and wrapped in recycled gold.
If you want to go with a tried and true Valentine’s Day gift, you can’t go wrong with chocolate. The good news is that there are a ton of fair trade chocolates out there. You can find fair trade chocolates, and other fair trade goods, easily by downloading the new Fair Trade Finder App.
