Small Budget, Big Impact Gifts You Need To Know About

November 30, 2017

It's a challenge every year to make that holiday budget stretch a little further so you don't greet the New Year with a credit card full of debt. We're here to help you give gifts with real meaning, without breaking the bank! Here's our list that we've checked twice to make sure you give friends and family something unique.

Chocolate Decadence

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Bundle a few different flavors together with a festive ribbon and you’ve got a Yankee Swap gift that's worth fighting over. We’ve even got fair-trade Hanukkah gelt

Sticky & Sweet

Let’s face it—the holidays are about eating. Choose a sumptuous spread, clever chutney or jolly jelly, add a bow to the top of the jar and call it a day. They’ll thank you when their English muffin pops out of the toaster the next morning. Who'll be on their mind? You will.

Mitscoots Socks

Not just the preferred gift of grandmothers anymore. In bright colors and patterns, far from being a lame gift, whimsical socks have become the it thing to keep your feet in flashy style. Made in the USA, gives a matching pair to someone in need for each pair you buy.

Ornaments Shop

Bring a smile to their face with a whimsical artisan-made ornament! In a variety of materials and designs at just the right price point, you can choose something special for all those left on your list! Can you resist the cuteness of soft, handwoven plush animals?

Spread Holiday Cheer

Send happy tidings to loved ones while supporting human rights projects around the globe with every card you send. Rediscover the personal touch of snail mail! You know what they say, it's the thought that counts. And you know your parents always say they just want to hear from you more.

Symbolic Tribute Gifts

For the person who has everything or who is simplifying their life and doesn’t want a physical gift, send a personalized “Plant Justice, Harvest Peace” notecard with a donation to a human rights project of your choosing in their name! See all designs and options online; gift in any amount.
