If that’s the case with your Seven Hopes gifts, you can still order TODAY for last-minute delivery by Christmas! Is your cart not as full as you’d like? Here are a few of our fave fair trade gifts!

1. Unique iPad Case: A pretty and unique iPad case handmade by a fair trade cooperative in Rajasthan, India. A stylish alternative that is nicely padded for protection of devices. Each iPad case is unique due to the variety of colorful floral fabrics!


2. Shibori Cotton Scarf: These scarves are made from 100% cotton by artisans in India, and embellished with fine tie-dye. Each scarf has a soft crinkled look, and comes in three colors: pink, blue, and green. Your purchase provides fair wages to talented artisans in India, and helps their communities rise above poverty.


3. Camellia Necklace: This gorgeous piece will make any lady in your life smile!  31 Bits Designs is a socially minded business designed to give internally displaced women in Northern Uganda an opportunity to counter poverty. By giving beneficiaries access to the international market, they are able to earn an instant income, providing homes, food, and education for their families.
