Gifts That Give More, Part 1

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, I figured I should start up some holiday posts! Rather than post typical wishlists (which I do every Wednesday already), I have decided to start a little series called "Gifts That Give More" and focus on gifts to give this holiday season that benefit more than just who is receiving the gift!
Today's post features gifts from the site Global Girlfriend. Here's what the organization says about themselves:
Global Girlfriend was created by Stacey Edgar in 2003 to help women worldwide gain economic security while providing you unique products and a simple way to help women in need. Our fair-trade boutique offers a line of trend-setting, women-made, fair-trade products including stylish apparel, accessories and gifts with one purpose -- helping women in need help themselves. We believe passionately that economic opportunity for women holds the promise for real change in the world; because when women have an income, they reinvest in themselves and in their children's health, education and nutrition, building stronger families and communities over time. Many women try desperately to make a living selling their artisan-quality goods but find that they have little access to market opportunities. Through fair-trade practices, Global Girlfriend brings the work of these disadvantaged groups directly to you. Global Girlfriend believes in forming long-term partnerships that provide women a fair living wage with equal employment opportunities, healthy and safe working conditions, technical assistance and development strategies to foster prosperity and reduce poverty.

 Global Girlfriend offers a wide variety of gifts. Here are some of my favorite items:

  8. What a fun post! It's always nice when a gift for someone does more than what meets the eye: such as helping support women in other parts of the world, or items that help support a good cause.

    Great post!
