Your Purchase with Purpose Holiday Gift Guide

November 27, 2015·

I am FULLY aware of the plethora of holiday gift guides that are floating around on the internets and on blogs right now. And I contemplated whether or not to do one, but then I thought I might take my own personal spin on it by highlighting some of my favorite fair trade, ethically made, and made in the USA items!

This was very difficult to pick out of ALL the ethical brands I love so much… so I figured I’d just keep it simple and share the highlights and give you some variety. So, I’m sharing my favorite fair trade picks from The Flourish Market and The Root Collective, and some awesome Made in the USA items from Shopbop.

Also, I am SO excited about sharing this with you… I have been struggling to find a good, solid, comprehensive list of fair trade, ethically made, and/or made in the USA brands and companies. So, for the last week or so, I’ve been compiling a list and creating a directory, and it’s starting to really come together!

It is DEFINITELY going to be a work in progress for a little while… adding companies / brands as I learn about them and come across them. But, for now, it’s really looking good! Done (or in progress) is better than perfect, right? Right! Know of a company / brand that needs to be added? Let me know!!

I really believe that we can make a difference by “voting” with our dollars and purchasing with purpose this holiday season. Plus, how awesome would it be if you made intentional purchases for your friends and family’s gifts this year? It would mean so much!

Anyway, let’s get to the gift guide…
