It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no matter how magical it is, we know the holiday season puts some stress on you to find great gifts at affordable prices. SO… TVE put together a quick, easy shopping guide to help you pick out the perfect gift for anyone on your list! The best part is that all your shopping at TVE is for a great cause. Take a look at what we’ve come up with. If there’s a certain someone you’re struggling with, or want to see a specific photo of a product, let us know! We’re happy to help!

Sister or Friend







Your sister or girl friend will love these 100% silk robes from Thailand. They come in 5 different colors and are incredibly comfortable! (Not to mention fashionable…) Be sure to also check out our wide selection of scarves (wool, silk and batik!) from all over the world. And lastly, Indian tote bags with unique patterns, drawstrings and mirror detailing!

Aspiring Top Chef










If you know someone who spends a lot of time in the kitchen, take a look at all these beautiful aprons from Kenya! We also carry a different style apron from Bali, so swing by to take a look! If your chef already has all the gear, browse our selection of olive oils from Palestine or fair trade brownie & cookie mixes – YUM!

Wine Lover










This one’s easy! You’ve probably familiar with one of our top sellers, Thai wine totes! Pair it with a bottle of wine or one of our wine stoppers from Kenya. Each wine stopper has a little hand-structured animal on the top, making the gift even more unique and special!

For the Men







We didn’t forget about the men you  have to shop for this year! We have several beautiful mango wood vases and candles we think many men would enjoy. Each is hand carved from the bark of a mango tree and comes with a glass insert so you can put water inside. Need some stocking stuffer ideas? If your man’s a coffee drinker, TVE also has lots of ground coffee. And if you’re still stumped, check out our hand-carved bottle openers!

#1 Mom










Shopping for mom can be challenging, but we have some great things she’s sure to love – like this beautiful tea set, bamboo or shell serving bowls and handmade paper notecards in several different colors. And if she’s an accessory lover, we sell Kenyan necklaces made from recycled paper, gold cuff bracelets from India and poco seed bracelets from Indonesia! Each piece of jewelry is unique – she won’t find it anywhere else!

Busy College Student







If you have a college student on your list this year, we know she’d love this Thai ID holder keychain. It’s perfect for running around campus, and she won’t have a hard time keeping track of cards and cash! They come in 5 different patterns, or you can choose from solid color silks. TVE also  has handmade paper journals and scrapbooks, so she can capture each memory!









How cute are these finger puppets from Peru? Your kids, grandkids, nieces and nephews will smile over these little animals and holiday-themed toys. If you’ve got a little girl running around, we have pocket mirrors from India with lots of bling and sparkle. It’s a gift fit for a princess!
