You love your parents. You want to give back. But you’re struggling to find a gift that does that plus really captures what they mean to you. Well, it’s hard to go wrong with ethical and unique Christmas gifts from UNICEF Market , which are bound to delight mom and dad both for what they are and how they help someone else.
Every UNICEF Market purchase — be it a sweater, a mug, or piece of jewelry — can spread holiday cheer from your parents here at home to both artisans and children in need around the world.
Unique & Ethical Christmas Gifts for Your Dad
Surprise your dad with this special braided sterling silver bracelet designed and handcrafted by Balinese artist Putu Gede Darmawan. In the wake of Indonesia’s devastating earthquake, supporting artisans like Putu is a great way to support a region struggling to get back on its feet. What’s more, proceeds from this purchase are enough to provide 90 doses of measles vaccine to children whose parents don’t have the means to keep them up-to-date on lifesaving immunizations.
For the dad who loves to have a good time, these wide-rimmed Margarita glasses, handblown by Mexican designers Javier and Efren, are sure to brighten any fiesta. Javier and Efren say they “love blown glass because of the pure imagination poured into every piece created.” We’re certain your dad will too. He’ll also appreciate the fact that proceeds from this purchase are enough to provide 25 doses of measles vaccines to protect children.
If your dad inspired your love for sports, tell him (and the world!) by sending a present from our Inspired charity Gifts collection in his name. Just $12 is enough to send three basketballs to kids in need.
Unique & Ethical Christmas Gifts for Your Mom
Looking for a unique way to say “I love you, Mom?” We think this sterling silver mother and child elephant pendant is it! Just like moms, elephants are fiercely loyal. And, they never forget — both the big things, like how old you were when you took your first step, and the small stuff, like where you left your keys! Linked by a single topaz stone, this mother and child duo would make a lovely testament to the bond you and your mom will share forever.
If you got your fashion sense from your mom — or simply appreciate hers — this elegant pair of scarves crafted by Thai artist Vinita Tongtawat is a nice way to show mom she’s still got it!
Mom’s love for you burns bright. Show her yours for her does, too, with this beautiful candle from UNICEF’s 2018 Holiday Collection, proceeds from which can provide 17 sachets of oral rehydration salts to help children who are sick fight dehydration.
