Don’t you wish you could find Christmas gifts that are beautiful, unique AND change the world?
Well, it looks like all your Christmases have come at once. This year, Etsy have teamed up with Plan International’s Because I Am A Girl initiative, to help you find the perfect gifts for Christmas that also support women.
Etsy is known for its beautifully crafted, handmade items, and this Christmas, hundreds of Etsy sellers around Australia have pledged to #makeforgood and create products inspired by the Because I Am A Girl mission to create a silver lining for girls living in poverty. They’ve committed to donating at least 20% of sales proceeds from the #makeforgood products they create. You can read more about the campaign here.
The collection is available at etsy.me/makeforgood until 24 December.
To celebrate this initiative, we’ve put together 8 beautiful Etsy gift ideas for the women in our lives. Whether it’s mothers, daughters, sisters, aunties, friends, or grandmothers, here are 8 gifts for women, that support women.
