  • Family Photo Shoot-what a great gift to give a family…a family portrait will last a lifetime
  • Kabuki Springs & Spaforget Calgon…take me away to Kabuki any day!

Pick your print


For the Art Lover:

Pick Your Print-Gift certificate good for a 12 inch limited edition fine art print from any image from Sea Glass Fine Art online portfolio.



Fair Trade gift basketFor the Gourmet Lover:

Crowd Pleaser Gift Basket from Equal Exchange–they had me at Fair Trade chocolate and coffee!



Gift-of-Membership-web-versFor the Globally-Minded

Global Community Gift Package–full disclosure, this is a Global Exchange original, so I’m biased here. But I’ve seen this in person, and it’s a great gift. The blockprinted tote bag alone is beautiful, plus you get all sorts of Fair Trade goodies including candles and chocolate, PLUS you get a 1 year membership to Global Exchange ($35 value in itself).


Don’t Miss Out!

The Global Exchange’s Holiday Online Auction is open now and closes on Thursday, December 12th at 8PM, PST. Check it out today and bid on YOUR favorite gifts!

Happy bidding for peace, justice, and sustainability.
