“I like the idea of giving a couple of organic pillows. CozyPure has a lot of options, as well as a wedding gift package that has a soft blanket and a gift card, if you’re not sure what the couple would want.”

        —Scott Kitson, Membership Marketing Manager, Green Business Network®

“I like giving farmers’ market baskets. The Bolga Market Baskets from My Bolga Baskets are colorful, unique, and made with fair trade practices by weavers in Ghana.”

        —Dana Christianson, Director of Membership Marketing

“If you’re in the market for an engagement or wedding ring, try McFarland Designs. All of Tamara McFarland’s rings are beautiful and simple. They’re also handmade from recycled and ethical sources. Tamara also raises thousands of dollars for charity.”

        —Monica Flores, Director of Digital Products

A hammock would make a great gift for partners who like being outside. Fair Trade Winds sell them in different colors, made by marginalized groups in Thailand. They look good, and they’re sturdy too.” 

        —Rob Hanson, Membership Marketing Manager

“Some people don’t want more stuff—for them, planting a tree can be a nice way to celebrate them. Plant a Tree USA  has a few different options depending on your budget.”
