HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: THE PERFECT GIFTS FOR YOUR LOVED ONES
2020 has been a year like no other. With more stress and global uncertainty than most of us have seen in a lifetime this holiday season is a perfect time to take a break, reconnect with friends and family (even if you can’t do it in person) and take a moment to appreciate what we have and what is most important. This has been a year to focus on self care and mindfulness as we navigate the “new normal” and taking time to pick out thoughtful, personal gifts for the special people in your life does not have to be an added stress. 54kibo offers beautiful, handmade pieces, built ethically and with intention, that will be loved by all.
FOR HER: AFRICAN LUXURY JEWELRY
Every woman loves unique and well-crafted jewelry. Adele Dejak makes handmade pieces from recycled brass that are sure to delight your sustainability-minded lady. Inspired by traditional African jewelry design, these pairs of handmade, high-quality earrings are unique enough for a woman who likes to make a fashion statement yet classically simple for a woman who likes to be quietly refined. For beaded jewelry, explore the handcrafted collection by Sidai Designs, a brand that is building a creative oasis for Maasai women in Tanzania. These designs are a piece of history, made from Czech beads that have been used by the Maasai since they were introduced by Arab traders in the 19th century.

FOR KIDS: HAND-CROCHETED STUFFED TOYS
So many kids have had to put playdates on hold this year, which has left them missing friends. Give them a soft and sweet stuffed animal that can keep them company while they distance from other children. Pick up one of the delightful characters from Little Pine Tree, or give your little one the whole herd! 100% cotton and hand crocheted in South Africa, these playful animals are carefully designed for your child’s safety with crocheted eyes and no harmful chemicals.

FOR HIM: BLUE CERAMIC BOWLS
With less opportunity for dining out, you may know a guy who’s become a master home chef serving up cereal and pasta. Give him these gorgeous zigzag bowls that are handmade in Zimbabwe. Inspired by traditional basket weaving, these swirling bowls are delicately moulded, glazed and decorated by hand. Each bowl is an example of stunning craftsmanship and striking contemporary African design. He might not have mastered the kitchen yet, but at least now he can serve his kitchen creations in style.
FOR CORPORATE GIFTS: TINTSABA BASKETS AND SCENTED CANDLES
Many offices have been closed since March which may have left you feeling disconnected from your colleagues. This year’s corporate gifts can be a reminder of how much you appreciate those people who have kept business running as usual while everything feels especially unusual. Handwoven baskets are great for storing small items on home office desks, while a Jasmine scented candle can have calming properties that will make your team member’s apartment smell like a warm garden in Marrakesh.
