18 Best Fair Trade Gifts for Her + Handmade, Fair Trade Jewelry

18 Best Fair Trade Gifts for Her + Handmade, Fair Trade Jewelry

A curated list of the best Fair Trade gifts for her, featuring handmade, environmentally friendly and ethically made bracelets, handbags, necklaces and women’s tops — plus affordable gift ideas and gift options under $50.

Fortunately, Fair Trade apparel and decor is steadily rising into mainstream consumerism (although definitely not ‘mainstream’ yet). A perfect way to embrace this ethical form of consumerism and support fair wage compensation is to — instead of being ‘business as usual’ when it comes to buying gifts — use your purchasing power for good while spreading the ethical love. In other words, give a Fair Trade gift. For this collection, we curated for the best fair trade gifts for her. You’ll find everything from fair trade, handmade bracelets and necklaces, to ethically made and vegan handbags and scarves. In our opinion, each of these products would make for a great gift. It’s helpful to note that if you see a product you like below, but aren’t a fan of the style, pattern or color, that the seller may have more style options available to choose from. If you want to see more ethical fashion oriented collections, let us know in the comments. They involve a bit more brand-level research, but we’re happy to do it.
