2) The Perfect #Lifehack
We can’t remember life before zipper pouches – they’re like the sophisticated, eco-friendly answer to Ziploc bags. We keep on-the-go mani-kits, travel essentials, notes and other essentials safely tucked away in these zipper clutches from Indiemama. Indiemama is a social enterprise that provides flexible training and employment to stay-home mums, so that they can earn an income while still being able to fulfill their commitments at home.

3) Beaded Baubles
Gorgeous enough to leave up all year round, these delicate glass beaded ornaments are hand-sewn in West Java. Founded on the principle that the disadvantaged need tools to succeed, not hand-outs, Sauyunan Handicrafts provides the families of West Java training, life skills development, design and marketing assistance so they can create, sell and provide for themselves.

4) Mood Lighting
Gift a little zen with light, fresh scents inspired by the Riau Islands of Indonesia. Made with high quality essential oils and wax blends, these candles are locally sourced with 100% of the proceeds going directly to The Seed Basket, a non-profit working to link communities rich in training and technology with resource-poor communities in Southeast Asia.
