Gifts with a heart

EcoChic Collection Manyara Photo FrameA quick nonstopmama shout-out to three small companies committed to sourcing ethically traded gifts and goodies. First up, the EcoChic online shop, which features fashion (for kids, too), gifts, accessories and homewares. This Fair Trade Manyara Wood Frame (£14.95), for example, is handmade in Africa using woods sourced from sustainable forests.

Over at Blue Dog Jewellery, founder Shona Lockhart combines her love of contemporary design – the online shop showcases the handiwork of a range of talented designers – and personal mission to raise £1 million to support the work of Oxfam and other development organisations working in Malawi.

Kate Hamilton-Hunter Small Heart NecklaceOne of Blue Dog Jewellery’s featured designers is Kate Hamilton-Hunter, who also has her own online shop. At Kate Hamilton-Hunter Studio, you’ll find simple, delicate pieces such as this Small Heart Necklace (£17.99), handcrafted from reclaimed aluminium (Kate also makes popular coloured versions, resourcefully styled using old Quality Street tins!)

    Jenni Baden HowardDaily adventures in beauty, style, health and fitness, family, food and fun!

    I'm a beauty and lifestyle writer and juggle-from-home mama (the Italian genes explain the mad hair and love of bronzer). I've written for a wide range of British glossies, newspapers and weekend supplements, along with many beauty and lifestyle websites.
