Let’s be real for a moment. Teens are known to be ahard group to buy gifts for. Often their tastes are drawn to expensive gifts (hello iPhone, Apple Watch and Ear Pods!). They can also be picky about what’s on trend, or keen to keep up with what their friends are buying. This can make it incredibly difficult for the gift buyer to know how to choose a present they’ll truly enjoy.
But the other thing we know about teens is that they are often budding activists. Is your teen passionate about sustainability? Tuned in to politics? Keeping a close eye on climate change? If so, an ethical gift will be well received. In fact, they will think it’s pretty cool to own an item with an interesting backstory.
Here are some ethical gift ideas for teens. Consider these for your conscious consumer!
Charm bracelets can be layered for a Boho look your teen will love. TheSenhoa Luxe Pearl Bracelet with lotus charm, Swarovski crystals and pearls is one your teen will adore wearing. AllSenhoa Jewellery is made by survivors of human trafficking and slavery in Cambodia. The purchase of this bracelet (or any other jewellery by Senhoa) provides employment for the survivor and their families who have been vulnerable to exploitation.
Every piece of jewellery in the LOVEbomb range tells a story, and its origin and peacemaking manufacture will influence your teen. Each piece of jewellery is crafted from recycled bomb fragments, dropped in Laos from 1964 to 1973. The history and story of manufacture is one your teen will want to wear and share. Each purchase sends money to the artisan’s village, providing sanitation and food supplies for their community. TheLOVEbomb Infinity Necklace is truly a talking point and unique gift your teen will love to show their friends.
Teens often need an extra bag to carry all the books, gadgets and sports gear that can’t fit into their school bag. Choosing aHelping Hands Penan basket tote will support the Penans who are the semi-nomadic indigenous people living predominantly in the Borneo rainforests of Malaysia. The sale of each tote supports this remote community, preventing families from falling into poverty and assisting them with self-sufficiency.
