Fair Trade Gifts For Christmas - Gifts That Tell A Story.

Since we started bibico in 2007 we have seen a huge improvement in the quality and variety of ethically made gifts on offer. This is great news if you are interested in buying a fair trade gift for someone at Christmas.

By buying a fair trade gift not only are you supporting small artisans and ensuring they are paid fairly for their work but you are also buying something with real provenance. We think this in itself makes the gift more interesting and unique.

The fair trade Christmas gift ideas we have listed here are produced on a small scale, are handmade and their designs are unique.
