By offering products that do social and environmental good at a sustainable price, we aim to help make the world a better place. 10% of profits from Giving Gifts goes directly to charity. Giving Gifts is an environmentally, socially aware company and all of our items are produced by companies and artists that have the same values. Through Giving Gifts, you can help buy the change you want to see in the world!

What is "Fair Trade" to Giving Gifts?

Why buy Fair Trade Gifts?
By purchasing fair trade handcrafted products you are helping to create income and ultimately a better life for artisans and their families. Giving Gifts believes that crafts people should be paid directly and fairly for their talent. 

Fair trade puts the emphasis on people as well as profit. The social good that is produced is greater than the financial benefit that may be achieved. Fair trade encourages businesses to be responsible. It also creates new entrepreneurs. Fair trade promotes sustainable business practices and entrepreneurship instead of aid, which is non-sustainable. Fair trade gifts are often of higher quality than mass factory produced products, because there is individual attention to the item being produced. It is made by hand with love!

What is "Eco Friendly" to Giving Gifts?

 Can you create a custom gift for me?

Absolutely! We love creating beautiful, meaningful gifts. Our Giving Crates, Gift Boxes and Gift Sets can all be customized to suit the person you are gifting them to. Contact us with any questions and your ideas.
