A Beautiful Scarf with an Old Soul 

This beautiful, richly-colored, go-with-anything silk-dipped handwoven scarf is about the same price as something you'd get from Target, but unlike what you'd get from Target, it pays good wages to workers and has a light footprint on the planet. This completely handwoven scarf is made at a cooperative of 48 weavers in Vietnam who use centuries-old weaving traditions handed down from their ancestors. Sure to be a gift anyone will love with a very unique story.  

The Cutest Planter of All Time

Get ready for the perfect gift for your dog-loving friends. This hand-crafted dog succulent planter is a great statement piece for their home, while also doing great things for people and the planet.

Socks that Protect the Arctic

And they've got cute polar bear, narwhal, and reindeer drawings to remind you of what your multipurpose socks are doing—giving back to Conservation International to protect these arctic animals in their natural habitat.
