Bridal Shower Gift Ideas For A Good Cause

With summer upon us, you probably have a variety of bridal showers and upcoming weddings. If you are anything like me, I wait until the last second to buy a present leaving me with a very picked over registry. So I usually try to give something off the registry especially if I know the bride well enough. I know, I know, the registry is there for a reason, but here are a few places you can find gifts that the bride to be will love, and each purchase will help people around the world.

The Little Market

Started by Lauren Conrad and Hannah Skvarla, The Little Market empowers female artisans by selling their handmade goods through an online marketplace. They practice fair trade principles, and every time you make a purchase it is allowing these women to support themselves and their families. There is a huge selection of home goods to choose from and even goods like chocolate, coffee, tea, and vanilla.

The Artisan Box

GlobeIn has created a monthly subscription featuring highly curated, artisan made products that are from around the world. Co-curated by Deepak Chopra, it is a subscription based company that enables artisans to make a living wage from their handmade products. You can buy a subscription for month to month, 3 months, 6 months or for an entire year. Each box arrives with a specific theme (you can choose or be surprised), and it is filled with usable fair trade goods that are all beautifully crafted. The themes range in variety from kitchen to travel and feature items such as pure ground vanilla from Madagascar, handmade basket from Mexico or a backpack from Sri Lanka. You can purchase a subscription or shop the many items they offer. It is a great way to help artisans around the world while providing beautiful gifts to a new couple setting out on the journey of life.

Good Shop

When you shop through the site, a percentage of your purchase is donated to your chosen cause. You can easily shop from a variety of items and choose exactly what cause you want to support with your hard earned cash.

One Hope

If you don’t want to completely go off the registry you can add a small gift like a bottle of wine (or one of their great gift boxes) from One Hope to go with your gift. Having been around for ten years, One Hope has spent a decade growing from selling wine out of the back of their car to creating an independent winery that has created over $2.6 million in social good. Shop their many wine related gifts that are perfect for a bridal shower.
