Break out the tinsel, the glitter and the gift wrap

Our social enterprise Holiday Gift Guide is live!

Break out the tinsel, the glitter and the gift wrap — toasting good’s Holiday Gift Guide has arrived! For the 2019 edition of our social enterprise shopping guide we were inspired, both in design and product selection, by the warm tones, feelings of celebration, joy and decadence that come with the winter season.

Perfectly gift-able social enterprise products

Finding the right gifts for those you love can be a lot of pressure! With the never-ending wave of brands popping up, it’s hard to sift through the noise to find companies whose ethics you can get behind with quality products that actually last the year.

We created Holiday Gift Guide to take the guesswork out of holiday gifting.

Rather than focusing on quick-fading trends, we chose each product for its intentionality, design, quality and purpose.

Whether it’s a super soft tee with a message in support of climate action, vegan bath and body products, high quality messenger bags made from recycled military materials or hand-stamped, customizable jewelry — every product has an impact.

Every product has an impact

For instance, each of the Bright Endeavor candles in our Home Goods shop were poured by Chicago teen moms using dignified work opportunities to build better lives for themselves and their children.

SLATE + SALT’s handcrafted leather bags are all fair trade, produced ethically in Kenya and made in partnership with social entrepreneurs local to the area.

Holiday Gift Guide newcomer, Savhera, provides organic essential oils for mind and body while combatting human trafficking by employing survivors of sexual exploitation.

These companies are making the real, lasting changes we all hope to see in the world, and they’re often doing it with little recognition. Our mission with Holiday Gift Guide is to celebrate companies actually doing good things by making it easy to support their craft and buy their products for your loved ones.

We’ve got eight shops-worth of gifts to explore:

Women’s Clothes & Shoes

Men’s Clothes & Shoes

Kids

Bags & Wallets

Jewelry

Home Goods

Health & Wellness

Food & Drink
