Fair trade gift guide: for the Traveler

 

I hadn’t been a “world traveler” in almost a decade until this year… my passport had EXPIRED at the ripe age of 29. Thankfully, I was blessed to put TWO stamps in it this year after traveling to Haiti and Guatemala this summer. And I plan to add a whole lot more! So here are some ideas to buy that traveler in your life – or for yourself – even if it’s just the occasional trips over the river and through the woods to grandmother’s house you go.

THE BAGS:

I got an unbelievable recycled huipil travel bag while in Guatemala. I cannot tell you how delighted I am that I was able to purchase one there. They’re quite a bit more expensive here, but I love having a unique bag that won’t look like all the others at the airport! Here are a few others:

I despise having checked baggage the looks like everyone else’s. These tags will help identify yours quickly!

What are some of your “have to have” travel items? Are you inspired to travel now that you’re empowered with ways to fair trade it? 🙂
