giveback gifts 2018 gift guide

giveback gifts -- ethical gift guide 2018 on one brass fox

Here it is! The single gift guide I’ll be releasing this year. Since pursuing a conscious closet and launching our own business, I’ve been so attuned to supporting local or handmade artisans. I find such joy in tracking the journey and story of products. So everything included here has a meaningful element. These giveback gifts are all about the people behind them, the way they interact with the planet, and how to bring joy to others through thoughtful purchases. I hope you enjoy! xx
