Gift Ideas for Women

Gifting your mom or wife or girlfriend, or your best female friend might be not an easy task. You want to get her something special, something meaningful, but you can’t figure out what? Don’t worry--we got your back for it. All the handicrafts on our list make a perfect gift...believe us on this! Our handicrafts are high quality, ethically sourced, and made by women artisans, plus your gift means that 100% of the profits go to supporting an eco-project in Palestine.

Does she like gold or prefer silver? 

You can’t go wrong with gifting handmade jewelry, especially these handcrafted olive leaf Items in sterling silver. Designer Nadira Alaraj and the Kattan family silversmiths do incredible work in Bethlehem, picking the olive leaves and casting them to create unique molds. Every single silver leaf is individually formed from a mold that is only used once, rendering unique, one-of-a-kind leaves from the ancient trees of Bethlehem. And for this pick we recommend the single leaf plaque bracelet. Minimal and classy. 

Is she out and about?

Check out the all new embroidered cross-body. Comes in black leather with embroidery in Red, White or Purple. It’s a super cool handy gift.

Jelld has over 15 designs from card holders, to front pocket wallets and clutches, from pouches to cross body bags and embroidered clutches. Check out more of their work here.

Is she a classy type?

She will be stunned! People got crazy made over the design and the embroidery of this shawl by Sulafa Embroidery Center.

Women embroiders in Gaza are considered the best embroiderers in Palestine. Not only you are gifting a piece of ethical fashion here, but you are also contributing to support an association which works with 250 women in Gaza; many of whom embroidery is their sole skill for income. 


Does she like to accessorize?

This one is on a different level. Comes in dark blue, red and dark red. The embroidery on the item is stunning. Photo does no justice for it. 


Is she into home decor? 

How about you check out the collection of botanical flowers illustrations that we have. These were hand painted by artist Lois Nakhleh and come in different sizes matted or unmatted. Truly amazing for home decor, and add a very serine touch to you living room.
