It’s always difficult to buy presents for people we love, and it’s no different when it comes to our dads.
We'd like to make it easier for you this Father's Day.
The Jesus’ Economy fair trade shop is full of unique gifts your dad will love and actually use, unlike that 20th tie you bought him last year. These practical goods are a perfect way to say “I love you” while making a positive impact on the world. When you shop fair trade gifts, you empower artisans in impoverished communities around the world and give a gift that brings joy.
Many of the gifts in our Father’s Day collection are leather goods from Jubilee, Haiti, an impoverished village just outside Gonaives. There, artisans like Benson Thermidor and Philippe use their skills in business and entrepreneurship to create stable jobs, while providing for their families. These artisans craft leather goods to sell locally and internationally, with the help of 2nd Story Goods and Jesus’ Economy.
Here are some beautiful handmade leather goods for the father in your life.
Every dad needs a wallet. The leather wallet from Haiti is a standard size wallet that has pockets for cash and credit cards, including a photo window. While this wallet looks and acts like any other wallet, it does even more, because it empowers artisans in Haiti.
This journal is a great option for a Father’s Day gift. It is sleek and compact, and available in four different sizes. It could be perfect for taking notes during a sermon or during a business meeting. It travels easily and looks professional.
The goat leather executive portfolio is another wonderful gift your dad will love. It is made with genuine goat leather and has many pockets for notes or business cards. It comes with hand-cut paper, which can be replaced once the notebook is full. This portfolio is also on sale!
