Amnesty's Ethical Gift Guide for 2021
This year, we have our biggest collection ever, of ethical gifts and everyday items at the Amnesty Shop. Vegan? We've got you covered. Worried about the environment? check our huge range of plastic free gifts, that don't compromise on style. We don't do fast fashion, just quality, ethical and useful.
Here are some of our favourites:
Embroidered by an incredible woman artisan living in a refugee camp in Greece this ‘Love Welcomes’ embroidery hoop is much more than just a beautiful addition to your home or a gift for a loved one. With the hand-stitched message and its translation into Morse code this hoop helps to support these women providing them with a living wage and help to build them a better future. £15
Or pick up a beautiful notebook, handmade by Syrian refugee women in Beirut, Lebanon. Made from recycled paper, they are hand cut and stitched with colourful thread. Designs reflect the sights, sounds and smells of downtown Beirut in the summer. £11
You can also support Palestinian farmers, with this very special olive oil set. This unique gift idea is not only a simple bottle of organic, Fairtrade extra virgin olive oil, it also pays for an olive tree to be planted in Palestine and comes with a certificate of thanks. Feel good knowing that your gift will delight the receiver and benefit farming communities in Palestine too. Zaytouns best selling olive oil is made with hand-picked, rain-fed olives that are pressed on the day of picking. The olives are organically grown and ethically sourced from small-scale farms in the West Bank. £25
How about his gorgeous adjustable bracelet with fire coloured recycled glass beads? It's also handmade by fair trade artisans? £16
