’Tis better to give than to receive, but ’tis far better to give while giving back.
Amplify your holiday altruism with fair trade bags from Givegive, a company that provides workers with direct access to health care, education, and good wages.
Former Rue La La art director Tanja Cesh spent years researching South Asian social enterprises and discovered a female artisan co-op in Nepal. She and co-founder Annalisa Oswald hand-delivered a large suitcase full of raw materials; a humanitarian accessories line was born.
The debut pieces, constructed of felt, Nepali-market leather, and ethically produced hardware, reflect the pair’s affection for modern, minimalist design.
Your stylish bud will golf clap over the heather gray clutch with kicky orange lining, while a passport-size zipper pouch makes an ideal traveling companion. Stuck on a last-minute dude gift? His iPad gets cozy inside a sturdy tablet sleeve.
Anything less just wouldn’t be good enough.
Available at justgivegive.com, $32-$68. Christmas delivery is guaranteed for orders placed today by midnight.
