a greater gift – brings hope around the globe


AGG1.jpgAGG2_1.jpgAGG3.jpg

When creating a gift yourself just isn’t an option, look in the direction of non-profits and museums to find that perfect gift. A Greater Gift helps artisans and farmers in developing regions around the world market their handcrafts and foods. All of the items they sell — home goods, spa, jewelry, baskets and more, are fairly traded — they work directly with small cooperatives around the world.

Catch their winter sale, comb the gallery for treasures, or shop their gift collection, and feel good knowing that it’s agreatergift.
