Valentine Gift Guide : The Little Market

There's nothing like a gift that keeps on giving. Enter: The Little Market. Lauren Conrad, who I have always thought was just fantastic, has started an online marketplace where you can shop for unique gifts that directly benefit the women who handmake them. These women are artisans in underdeveloped places like India, Tanzania,  and Uganda. The Little Market seeks to empower these women to rise above the poverty lines so they can support their families while working in a safe environment. I love fair trade and the responsibility of this mission. My favorite picks:

Have you ever felt Alpaca? Oooh it's SO soft! I love the mittens & pom pom beanie, along with the scarf! The apron would be cute, alongside some baking utinsels for the lady in your life who loves to bake. The blockprint is handstamped. So cute & on trend right now.

Rose gold is so pretty, right? And a set of these bowls would add a global touch to your china cabinet, for sure. I think they're so pretty. Both would look lovely on the tray below.

Do you have any other Fair Trade favorites?
