Father’s Day is just a couple of weeks away! While our Fathers and husbands know we appreciate and love them without the gifts, it’s still fun to bless them with a few little goodies – especially if those goodies are ethically sourced and fair trade! I’ve put together a few ideas to help you find a little bit of awesome for those Fathers in your life ;0)
Fabulous Fair Trade Father’s Day Gifts Ideas
I just found this shop called Delish General Store – and they have got a gold mine of fantastic products handcrafted items produced everywhere from the provinces of Canada to Provence, France. If you have a Father in your life who loves being in the kitchen, then they will LOVE some of these ideas!

Summer is around the corner (or has already arrived for many of you) but that doesn’t mean we don’t need to still think about footwear! Just ditch the heavy socks and spring for some lightweight shorties.
