Is it just me, or does December just speed by in the blink of an eye? And if you’re anything like me, you’ve only just started to think about your holiday gift list. Ahhhh!

Thankfully, it’s not too long. I’ve got you. And if you’re interested in giving the gift of ethical fashion, look no further. With this week’s gift list, you’ll be able to change how you give gifts this holiday season.

Can I get an “awwwwwww?”

This week, I’ve rounded up gifts big and small from clothing companies that are small enough and dedicated enough to have extremely transparent supply chains. So when you give one of these gifts, you’re not only being generous to your friends but to the people who produce fashion as well!

Everlane The Artist Print Collection Tablet Case: Everlane, known for their radical transparency and minimalist looks, have finally released their first print. It’s everything you’d expect from the brand: a chic, sophisticated and spare painterly pattern that adorns everything from bags to garments. I love this tablet case as a gift, which can double as an oversize clutch that goes with everything.

People Tree Bead Branch Necklace and Earrings set: Pairing these earrings and necklace together makes for a gorgeous gift set. I love any jewelry that mimics nature, and supporting artisans creating fair trade adornments makes it doubled awesome!

Eileen Fisher Pom Pom Hat and Glovettes set: Another two products that work well together as a gift set are these organic cotton glovettes and hat from Eileen Fisher. They are so cute and warm, and are also produced in Peru through fair trade.

Raven & Lily Wood & Gold Cuff: Something a little less practical and a little more chic? How about this unique, chic wood & gold leather cuff made by artisans in India. Perfect bling for your holiday parties!

Maiyet sunglasses: If you have a friend who’s obsessed with sunnies, you have to check out this pair from Maiyet. From the Warby Parker X Maiyet collection, they definitely harken back to the ’70s. Made in Italy, a pair of these 100% UV protectant glasses is given to someone in need for each pair bought!

Ecochic Gifts

Winter Sock Pack from Braintree: To me, it sometimes seems as though the world is divided into two types of people: those who like plain socks, and those (like me) who appreciate a silly sock. For the silly sock lover in your life, Braintree has a set of eco-friendly bamboo ones. They not only come in a pack that looks like a book, but also include dots, stripes, and owl patterns. So cute! 🙂

Angie Reversible Maxi Dress from Lux & Eco: Looking for the perfect dress for party season? Lux & Eco’s got you. This dress is not only made with bamboo and vegetable dyes, but can be worn two different ways for twice the dress per closet space.

The Zady .02 T-shirt in Navy: Made sustainably and in the U.S.A., this simple tee should be the wardrobe cornerstone for any budding conscious fashionista. If you have a friend who’s expressed an interest in approaching fashion in a thoughtful way, but doesn’t know where to begin: this gift might be the perfect place to start. 

Reformation’s Daiquiri Dress: Not sure about a bamboo dress? This gold one, made from surplus fabric, is just the thing for New Year’s Eve. Reformation always delivers on style, and you can bet that producing pieces from surplus fabric rather than ordering new means that they’re kind to the environment.

Matt & Nat’s Hope Bag: You can bet that they’ll be a lot of bag being gifted this holiday season. So instead of gifting something from a harmful brand, why not give a Matt & Nat? These gorgeous bags are never leather, and their linings are produced from recycled plastic bottles. Perfect!
