2017 Fair Trade, Holiday Ideas, and Gift Giving Guide

Plant growing in a gift box

This holiday season and throughout the year, the Library Sustainability Committee’s Fair Trade, Holiday Ideas, and Gift Giving Guide makes it fun and easy to choose local, sustainable, fair-trade and recycled gifts and more.

Here are suggestions for gifts that support local small businesses and artisans, as well as places to find fair-trade sustainable items from around the globe.

Or maybe the perfect gift is something a little less tangible, such as a donation to a favorite charity or an unforgettable experience (or at the very least, a fun one!).

 Researchers have found that for those who already have plenty, experiences bring more happiness than material possessions. And San Diego has so much to offer! Consider a gift card to a favorite restaurant; tickets to the movies, a concert, or the theater; or a membership to one of our local gardens or museums.

This year’s updated guide is full of resources and ideas that are great for the local economy, easy on the earth, and delightful to receive.

Enjoy the season!
