Trades of Hope is a great organization to do your Christmas shopping from.  Stores like this are my favorites because you can get so much of your shopping done in one shop!  They have scarves, jewelry, ornaments, house ware, etc.  I love a one stop shop, which is probably why Target gets me in so much trouble.

Trades of Hope is letting me pick two winners for this one and has two great gifts for you.  These would both make great gifts for people on your list.  I’m hoping to help you scratch people off your list with items that make a difference.  Isn’t that what we want?!?  So good!

This amazing scarf could be yours and let me tell you this scarf is great.  I wore this the other night to a party and it automatically makes your daytime outfit go to nighttime when you add this. It’s classy and beautiful.  Oh I loved it so much!

The next thing that Trades of Hope is offering is a beautiful tri-fold manger scene that is made from recycled tin, once 55-gallon drums! The drums are cut open, hammered flat, and marked with designs. The designs are then implemented with a hammer and chisel. This is more than just a wonderful piece for the Christmas season, but a token of support towards these Haitian people working to provide for their families.

One of our most favorite pieces of wall art in our home is a nativity scene that we bought in Haiti that is made from recycled steel drums.  I’m so happy to add this one to my collection.  This nativity scene is $38 and would make a great gift for that girlfriend in your life!

Good luck and happy shopping at Trades of Hope!
