If you’ve been following The Sedge for awhile, you may remember the Gifts that Give holiday shopping guides I pulled together for the 2015 and 2016 holiday season…

So it’s no surprise that throughout the year I’ve been collecting links to interesting ethical, sustainable, eco-conscious products that are perfect for holiday gifts in preparation for the 2017 edition.

BUT, this year’s gift guide has evolved past a few awesome gift ideas.

Because this year there has been an absolute EXPLOSION of amazing social enterprise gift guides and a growing number of online stores that are doing this careful curation waaay better than I ever could!

The result?

In addition to a few choice products to help you fill your shopping list with the most kick-butt innovative and plain pretty goods – that are all supporting socially conscious, ethical and environmentally sustainable companies – this ultimate GIFTS THAT GIVE guide for 2017 also includes a list of all the top roundup-style articles that have popped up over the last month or so.

So get comfy, grab a java, and prepare for the inevitable internet rabbit holes you are now about to enter!
