Forget the Frenetic Commercials from Big Box Retailers: Support Women This Holiday!

I don’t have cable anymore, which is sometimes a bummer when I have to wait a whole season to watch favorite shows (currently missing positive female role model Leslie Knope on Parks & Rec!).  But what I don’t miss at all are commercials, especially this time of year.

They’re incredibly loud, incredibly bright, and even a little bit anxiety-inducing, as they insist you throw your holiday dollars at whatever’s trendy, whatever’s new, and whatever (let’s be honest) they’ll make the most money on.  For me, at least, it’s really easy to get swept up in all that insanity, and forget about the things that really matter.

Combating the in-your-face, mindless consumerism of the season was our goal when we put together our 2012 guide to Gifts That Give Back to Women.  It features fair trade and handmade gifts from great online retailers like IndegoAfrica, 31Bits, and Maiden Nation (and, yes, a few of our personal favorites from our holiday collection).

Even better, the gifts in this guide are made by women around the world.  I hope the product in this guide inspire you to create change this holiday season by buying socially conscious gifts and spreading the word to your loved ones.  We encourage you to check out the Gifts That Give Back to Women guide, share it with your friends, purchase women-made items, and make this holiday season even brighter with meaningful gifts.

This has been a Public Service Announcement from Prosperity Candle.

Gift better!
