4 Best Holiday Gift Guides of 2019
1. Shop for Good Sunday gift guides
If you haven’t heard of it, Shop for Good Sunday is the feel-good Black Friday alternative that highlights “mission-driven” brands. These brands have ethical business practices, sustainable sourcing, animal-friendly production, or programs that benefit their communities. An example is the gear maker Cotopaxi that puts 1 percent of revenues towards fighting poverty. Or jewelry maker Hathorway that supports initiatives to empower underprivileged women.
You’ll find your pick of products that better the world in the Shop for Good gift guides. And while Shop for Good Sunday is officially December 1, you’ll find major discounts on the Shop for Good website between November 5 and December 31.
