Christmas is right around the corner, isn’t it? It’s crazy how fast it snuck up on me- even all of us JY girls! You’ve probably seen the Christmas things popping up around here. Be sure to check out Karina’s ornament exchange and Summer’s Secret Sister one! I am so glad Thanksgiving comes first, and I (Hadassah) am very excited for that day… in fact, it is in just a couple of days! Eek! We (I have eight siblings) are just going to stay home this year and give thanks with my grandmother. Do you have any special traditions you like to do in your family? I’d love to hear them below… ;D
This Christmas season, I am so excited because I have been planning and helping give hope this Christmas… through Trades of Hope! I have been apart of this amazing company since September through their SPARKS program… and I cannot tell you just how much I love what they do and how they do it! ❤ They are giving hope and love to people who may have never had it, all around the world. Trades of Hope is a company that helps artisans all over, by buying their products through fair trade and TOH selling it for them- and giving some of that money back to them so they earn a living.
They have soooo many cute and beautiful things on their website! I’d definitely recommend you check them out. Though it may be expensive for some people, you’re not only just giving a present to someone you love… you’re supporting a family or a woman in a different state or country get out of the slums or trafficking.
Y’all. If you wanted to get me a Christmas present, I’d tell you go look at Trades of Hope, LOL. xD Don’t even get me started on their earrings and jewelry! It’s not only centered for women though- you can get things for the kids, your dad (or hubby), even your grandfather!
Below are some of my favs from TOH! I guess you could call this my mini ‘gift guide.’ I wish I could just give you a picture of everything I love on there, but I suppose you should just go check it out yourself. 😉
Happy Thanksgiving… and eek, I can already say “Happy Holidays!” Have a good week y’all. Give thanks!! 😀
