As soon as November 1st hits the shift automatically happens. We go from reveling in fall and Halloween to diving headlong into the season of gift giving. This season, while it’s still early on, you can set your sights on fair trade gifts that will not only be the perfect gift for those you love, but also help those in need from master artisans who eek out a living as creators or supports literacy or women cooperatives.

Yesterday I wrote about 12 Buy One, Give One Gifts for the Holidays. Here are infant gifts ranging under $20 to nearly $100 that make great gifts for the holiday season or anytime of the year. Through the end of the year I will blog about gifts that give back. You can follow along at the hashtag #GiftsforGood.
