Shopping for Christmas gifts can be a fun but also difficult task. We picked these items because we’d love to see them under our tree and we know that even the most “tough to buy for” person in your family will love any one or three of these. Except for the fire starter kit they are all kid friendly.
Enjoy and happy shopping!

For the last 17 years the manufacturer of this lil’ Best Made chopper has been working closely with a cooperative of indigenous women of Aymara descent in Bolivia where they have been instrumental in creating health insurance plans, dental plans, day care, exercise programs, and micro loans for their craftswomen. Each item is knit by hand so the women are able to work at home while tending to their families. We can’t think of a more worthy cause, and are thrilled that each purchase of this hand-knit axe will help make these women’s lives better. 100% Alpaca wool (hypoallergenic), 11″ handle, 2″ head, hand-knit in Bolivia $90
Blocks from brinca dada may be unlike any other set of wooden blocks you’ve ever seen. Because each piece is unique and doesn’t always fit cleanly with the others, our Blocks are a bit more challenging than traditional block sets, but also more satisfying. Hand-carved from teak hardwood they are also stunning no matter what you build with them and they look great in the living room, the play room or the office. $54
