The holiday season is upon us! While we all know that the holidays can be full of joy, they can also be pretty stressful.
You know what we mean... Coordinating family gatherings, prepping holiday meals, and finding the perfect gifts for your closest friends and family. We want to make this year's shopping stress free and rewarding for both the giver and the receiver. Both are easier than you may think.
What better way to launch our blog than to do a gift guide for the holidaze?!
Narrow Collective is a blog highlighting cause driven fashion, designs, and trends. We are huge advocates of ethical shopping and we want to support brands that give back. Sometimes, it surprises people how easy it is to “give back” or help someone in need; and it doesn’t necessarily mean lowering your standard of gift giving either. We have found amazing, quality merchandise that is ahead of its time.
For this holiday season, we have pulled together a shopping guide to help you choose socially responsible gifts that won’t disappoint! We hope you enjoy what we've found:
Wallet/Backpack from FashionABLE:
leather goods made by women who have overcome things from sex trafficking to addiction to a lack of opportunity. FashionABLE focuses on empowering women locally and globally by allowing them to experience the satisfaction of developing a skill.
Jewelry from 31 Bits:
empowering people to rise above poverty in Uganda by providing jobs through the production of the jewelry. They have a 5 year program that teaches the women to create quality products and provides them with counseling and business training so that she is healthy, educated, and can run her own business.
