Gifts That Keep on Giving

They always say that giving is better than receiving. This year, how about getting that extra-warm glow inside from buying gifts that benefit more than just your loved ones. When you give a Fair Trade gift, you  empower farmers and artisans with dignified work, and adequate incomes to access nutrition, health care, education for their families. You change lives.

Fair trade gifts are really the best thing to buy. Last Christmas I gave my grandma an organic scarf, and she loves it so much that she always wear it everyday :)
