When giving gifts during the holiday season, it's nice to give gifts that give back and help make a difference for those in need or communities that need support. Fair trade products are items that provide a living wage to artisans or farmers and provide a steady source of income to help build the community in which they live. One organization, Fair Trade USA, has a certification program that helps consumers identify these products. You can find everything from organic coffee to jewelry to clothing and items for the home. The group's annual holiday gift guide is online at fairtradeusa.org.
