Holiday Gift Tip: For Your Techie Friends and Fam

Know someone whose fingers are practically glued to their iPhone, iPod, or iPad?  The unisex Etre Touchy Gloves (available at Fair Indigo; shown above in Ecru/Oxford Blue Stripe) make the perfect winter gift:

“These texting gloves are a stylish, fun and practical way to keep your hands warm while using your touchscreen phone, portable game system, media player, or any other gadget.

“The exposed thumb and index fingertips give you the freedom you need to operate devices, while the full coverage on the other fingers still keeps you warm.”

These super comfy 100% lambswool gloves are made fairly “at an Old World knitting mill in Scotland” and come in a variety of additional colors (Black w/ Grey Trim, Grey w/ Charcoal Trim, Rhapsody Blue w/ Red Trim, Oxford Blue w/ Yellow Trim, Black/Red Stripe, & Oxford Blue/Ecru Stripe).

For folks who want even more coverage, Etre has designed a special Fivepoint Texting Glove (also available at Fair Indigo):

“Thanks to their special contactwoven® fingertips, they do what other gloves don’t: They let you use touchscreens without having to take them off.

These super soft and cozy gloves are a techie’s best friend and come in both Rosemary (shown above) and a classic Black.

Happy Holidays!

Peace & Love,

However, since October is Fair Trade month, we’re remembering to prioritize our commitment to the movement and to you, our loyal readers. Please stop back often as we continue to share the hippest, tastiest, & most fantastic Fair Trade finds.

Peace and Love,
