What do you get for the people who seem to have everything? Here are some of our mindful gift ideas for this year to inspire you...
Make a Donation
If you make a donation to a cause or organization that is meaningful to that person, you will be showing how much you respect and care for them. This is such a lovely idea for someone who says "Seriously, don't get me a present this year!"
Purchase unique gifts that support international fair trade practices
Ten Thousand Villages is an exceptional source for unique handmade gifts, jewelry, home decor, art and sculpture, textiles, serveware and personal accessories representing the diverse cultures of artisans in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East. One of the world's largest fair trade organizations and a founding member of the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO), the company strives to improve the livelihood of tens of thousands of disadvantaged artisans in 38 countries. Ten Thousand Villages accomplishes this by establishing a sustainable market for handmade products in North America, and building long term buying relationships in places where skilled artisan partners lack opportunities for stable income. Product sales help pay for food, education, healthcare and housing for artisans who would otherwise be unemployed or underemployed.
