Do you ever come across a shop that is so full of beautiful products that you find yourself window shopping for hours? I love when I stumble across these gems, especially when they boast of fair trade, eco-friendly, sustainable products!
I love to give gifts, but it’s always hard for me to know what to ask others to get my kids. You see, we have plenty of things to keep them entertained. In my eyes, we have more than enough gadgets. I could do without a bunch of plastic tripping-hazards littering my floor and please: no flashy lights and loud noises!
Part of our journey to minimalism is replacing all of the junk in our house with high quality items that we can be proud of. Things that are bought with purpose and, when possible, items that support good causes. To me this helps teach the children to treasure the things that they do have and take good care of them.
So instead of buying the latest and greatest trend this season, why not stick with the classics and get your family some beautiful, conscientious pieces that they can treasure?
Enter: One I Love shop!
One I Love sources fairly traded products from a variety of companies that represent integrity, love, & honesty in production to provide you with the best in organic & sustainable products for your little ones. We hope you love these hand picked items as much as we do!
I’ve had the honor of chatting online with Katherine from the shop; she had picked a few items that she thought y’all would love and I think she did an amazing job. From stocking stuffers to Christmas presents to just general “because I love you” purchases, I think their site pretty much covers everything!
Here are a few of my favorite picks that were curated for us. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to win a gift card to the One I Love so you can get your own favorite pieces! *Words in italic are taken directly from the site.
