Huaywasi's 2019 Ethical Gift Guide
The Holidays are coming faster than ever and we all know the struggle of finding the perfect gifts for your relatives and friends. Use this guide to make your lives a little easier, which not only includes our products but also other Fair Trade and/or ethical goodies to get you inspired!
1. For Him
Whether it’s your brother, uncle, boyfriend, or dad, we all know that gifts for men are more difficult to find than for women. We think that our Zachary Cowlneck fits every style and age and is perfect to keep him warm as winter approaches!
Want to show a little more love? Pair our cowlneck with the Matt+Nat Vegan Leather Card Holder! They keep wallets simple, classy, and functional at an affordable price.
2. For the Moms and Grandma’s
We all know our moms and grandmothers love to have the whole family come together around the holidays, decorating their homes to create a warm Christmas ambiance full of love and laughter. Help them out this season by gifting our Christmas ornaments - each handcrafted with love by Saida. Using our bundle deal to buy all 4 colors, you get a 20% discount and keep one for yourself too!
Add on a nice winter candle to compliment the ornaments for an extra cosy living room with the Terralite Woodlands Candle-- keeping the smell of Christmas pine needles around the house all year around.
3. For your Bestie
Our besties deserve the best, which means we want them to to stay warm and fashionable in the worst winter storms! Our cute Ayacucho Headwrap made from 100% alpaca yarn will keep her/his ears protected while looking cute and classy.
The headwraps are available in three colors and can be paired with other knitwear from our collection. These Terra Gold Hoops from Purpose Jewelry form a beautiful combination while wearing the headwrap to treat your bestie a little more.
4. For your Environmentally Responsible Friend
The Chan Chan wristlet is a useful addition to every wardrobe: a small but practical purse created to fit the essentials- cell phone, cards, and keys.
This wristlet was made by Herminia from upcycled suede in an old collection dress that we never put into production! Pairing a warm tela andina pattern with the camel colored suede produced the perfect ethical and sustainable bag.
Want to take sustainability a step further? We think the Sea Shell (Mandala Edition) Pela Case and the Chan Chan wristlet are the perfect match!
5. For the Yogi in Your Life
We all have that friend that convinces you to try yoga with her/him :) Start her/his 2020 off right by gifting them one of our tela andina yoga bags--a cute and practical way to carry your mats to your favorita yoga spots! Also, shop our Yogi Bundle at the bottom of our yoga bag product pages to add on a Torito Heaband for just $4!
If your Yogi Friend exercises Vinyasa or Hot Yoga, this beautiful prAna Hand Towel provides grip and moisture-wicking effectiveness to her/his practice to complete the perfect yogi lover gift set.
6. For Your Work Christmas Exchange
Also always stuck on what to give to your coworker or boss? Can’t go wrong with our Llamita ornaments! They will suit everyone’s tree. When you buy 3 or more, you get 15% off to gift the whole collection or make 3 different people happy! (See bottom of product pages for details)
A great matching gift would be this Society6 Alpaca Coffee Mug to keep it fun in the office.
7. For Your Favorite Aunt
Whether it’s your Mom’s sister, Dad’s sister or aunt of your significant other, we all have our favorite aunt and Christmas is the perfect time of the year to show your love! We have picked out our lovely Daria Invierno Tote Bag, and for just $5 more you can add on the matching coin purse, because who doesn't love a matching bag and wallet? Check it out in Cranberry or Charcoal! (See bottom of product pages for details)
Know that your aunt already has too many wallets to count? No problem! We found this beautiful artisan made Alpine Beak Bracelet Set by Thistle Farms to complete the gift.
8. For the Chocolate Lover in Your Life
Virtually everyone loves a good piece of chocolate around the holidays, which makes this next combo an easy gift to give anybody (including yourself!). Our new Daria Clutch in Raspberry Chocolate color can be used for more than just cosmetics. Add in a special treat by filling it with Tony's Chocolonely Dark Milk Pretzel Toffee!
At Huaywasi HQ we love Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate because it combines two of the best things in life: Deliciousness and Fair Trade! Who wouldn’t love this gift?
9. Your College or Recently Graduated Daughter
Treat your conscious-minded daughter to our sustainably and ethically made 100% alpaca Huancayo collection this season— we promise she’ll thank you! Also, when you buy Huancayo Headband and Gloves together for the price of $75, you’ll save over 25%! (See bottom of product pages for details).
