Festive Fairtrade Christmas gifts and ethical treats

Christmas gifts
by Emily McCoy

Get your Fairtrade Christmas all wrapped up with this wonderful selection of ethical lovelies. 

For many of us, Christmas is about family, friends and showing that you care. Choosing Fairtrade means that you can have a direct impact on families across the world. Your purchase ensures that a Fairtrade Minimum Price is paid to the farmers and workers, as well as a Fairtrade Premium, which goes back into the communities responsible for your favourite things. This helps support families in developing countries with things like healthcare, infrastructure and sustainable living. 

We want to help you make your Christmas as ethical as possible so we’ve picked out some of our favourites this year, from tasty stocking fillers to stunning Fairtrade jewellery and gorgeous gifts. There are so many new Fairtrade products easily available, you’re sure to find something special for all the family.

La Riojana Tilimuqui Fairtrade Organic Malbec

Celebrate with friends and family over a bottle of Fairtrade red. La Riojana’s Tilimuqui wine is grown in the remote north of Argentina where arid soils give rise to grapes bursting with ripeness.

This is a new wine from a co-operative in the Famatina Valley, where most of the village is connected with the winery, meaning that the whole community benefits from Fairtrade projects in the area helping to improve living conditions.

This one is available from Waitrose.
