Whether you’re looking for artisan-made gifts that benefit local communities in Africa, or activist gear to wear all year long, the ONE store has you covered for the perfect holiday gifts. We hand-picked the list below just for you—check it out and learn how you can give something that gives back, too.
1. ONE x Camfed Educate Every Girl bracelet
130 million girls didn’t go to school today. ONE teamed up with Camfed to make this bracelet because our organizations share the belief that every girl has the right to an education. A portion of the sales from each bracelet benefits Camfed’s programs, which to date have helped 1.5 million girls in Africa get the education they deserve. A girl’s place is in the classroom, and by gifting this bracelet to a loved one (or by grabbing one for yourself!) you’re supporting programs that can help get them there.
2. Kalkidan leather wallets
Don’t let their sleek design fool you: These handcrafted wallets are the perfect size for carrying around all the essentials. They’re handmade from 100% Ethiopian leather by artisans who work with fashionABLE, an organization that creates opportunities for vulnerable women in Africa by helping them start small business cooperatives.
3. ONE Crewneck sweatshirt
ONE’s crewneck sweatshirts are so comfortable and cozy, you may be tempted to keep it for yourself instead of giving it away! Featuring our classic logo and a super soft lining, they’re the perfect fit for every activist on your list.
4. Indego Africa exclusive bangles
Brand new to the ONE store, these bright bangles were handcrafted in Rwanda by our friends at Indego Africa. They were made by the time-honored tradition of hand-dying soft, natural fibers and weaving them around rings of sweetgrass. Each one helps provide fair and sustainable wages for the artisans who craft them, and for business and entrepreneurial classes that enable them to become leaders in their communities. We chose the bold pattern because we thought it made a fashion statement, but we love that these bangles make a powerful statement about women’s economic empowerment, too.
5. Holiday stationary
Wish your loved ones a happy holiday season with these beautiful cards. Custom made by To the Market, they feature a vibrant cocoa bean pattern on a deep burgundy background. A portion of each purchase goes to MarieMae business school, supporting female entrepreneurs in Eastern Africa.
6. Krochet Kids Reed & Agatha beanies
These hand-crocheted beanies are so snug and soft, your loved ones will want to wear them everywhere! Featuring rich colors and fun patterns, each one was handmade in Uganda and supports programs that provide female artisans with the assets, skills, and knowledge to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
BONUS: Alex + Ani bracelet
Our friends at Alex + Ani made these lovely “New Beginnings” bangles just for us. A portion of each one goes to support ONE’s work, empowering millions of members around the world to take action to help eradicate poverty and end preventable diseases. These bangles really spark our passion for creating positive change, and we think they will for everyone on your holiday list, too.
