Decorative Accessories to add the finishing touches
Often it's the little finishing touches that make a house a home. A pair of unique and unusual handmade bookends or a super cute penguin to hold open your door. Our range of decorative accessories are fairly traded and handmade by artisans. The perfect ethical homeware to add your own personal touch to every room in the house. Stunning as ornaments and unusual quirky gifts we love the wire animal heads from Nkuku and who wouldn't want a funky dinosaur make out of discarded bicycle parts. The wooden parlour games look great on a coffee table or sideboard and provide hours of wholesome family fun. A great wedding anniversary gift for a couple who like to spend an evening in front of the fire.
Just as having the right lamps and lighting can transform a space so can choosing the perfect home accessories. A great piece of wall art will add colour and interest to your decor. Picture frames full of photos and memories tell stories and make your space your own. And birthday gifts from loved ones that take pride of place in the living room, make you smile every time you catch sight of them in the corner of your eye.
Our gorgeous range of fair trade homeware has everything you need to revamp your interior design from hand-woven area rugs and floor lamps for the bedroom, wall clocks for the dining room or kitchen and everything you need to set your dining table with ethics and style.
To finish your unique home decor we have soft and sumptuous throws and pillows, delightfully scented soy wax candles and all sorts of decorative objects at a fraction of the price of designer home accessories yet still providing a fair trade premium to the people who made them.
Colours of the Rainbow
If you are looking to add a bit of rainbow colour to your decor we love the rainbow chime mobiles. Perfect for above a cot or to hang in a window so they tinkle and chime in the breeze. Or a beautiful handmade dream catcher mobile to ensure only the sweetest of dreams make it into your head.
These bright colourful mobiles make lovely gifts and will instantly brighten any corner of a nursery, playroom, bathroom or bedroom.
Continuing the rainbow theme the multi-coloured star lantern will cast muted Moroccan inspired lighting with the addition of a tea light and is lovely for indoor or outdoor use. And of course, we love the round rainbow rag rug and Pachamama's Hoxton throw because they are just so warm and snuggly.
Unique Gifts For The Home
Gifts for men:
If you are looking for something a little different for father's day, or an unusual gift idea for a birthday, a recycled bicycle chain wine rack or decorative antelope head made from recycled wire could be just the quirky presents you are looking for.
For cycle enthusiasts or anyone who loves a bit of upcycled chic the recycled bike chain products includes lots of items that make slightly novelty gifts. The bottle opener key ring could come in very handy for summer bbqs and camping trips with friends, or they make great stocking fillers. And trivet and coasters are perfect for protecting your dining table and work well with a rustic decor theme. The clocks could make a great addition to a man cave or workshop and the bookends are a fun way to keep a bookshelf or desk tidy.
There are also lots of lovely vintage inspired accessories. The decorative globe on a metal stand is the perfect gift for travel lovers. Spin the globe for ideas on where to go next reminisce about a life full of adventures. This goes really beautifully with the nautical set and sand timer especially for those who have a love of steampunk or nautical decorating.
Gifts for women:
We have so many ideas for gifts for women but if you are looking to move away from the classic chocolate or pamper treats and choose something a little more unusual then a fairtrade gift for the home is thoughtful, personal and will hopefully be something they treasure for years.
Both the Viri hanging planters from nkuku and the three-tier hanging baskets by Artisans Fair are a lovely alternative to giving flowers and the perfect way to add a bit of greenery into your home without taking up valuable surface space.
Photo frames also make fabulous gifts for men or women. The nkuku metal frames are handmade and all totally unique due to the addition of a recycled sari silk hanging tie. We love the fact that these are glass backed making them ideal for framing all sorts of momentoes such as concert tickets, pressed flowers, or maps as well as photos.
Mix and match sizes and colours and use alongside the other recycled or reclaimed frames for a fantastic feature wall full of memories.
Candles are also a popular choice for gifts and the stunning fair trade, hand poured Bali mantra candles come in beautiful reusable containers that are lovely ornaments in their own right and perfect for storing treats or trinkets once the candle has been used.
Or choose from a range of decorative tea light holders that look lovely, are fairly traded and made from recycled or reclaimed materials.
Gift Cards and Mystery Boxes
If you are looking for a gift and can't quite decide why not choose a gift card or mystery box. A gift card will let the recipient choose the perfect gift for them and you know that your money has been spent responsibly in a way that cares for both the environment and the people right along the supply chain.
Or if you want something to wrap up and give (or just a nice surprise for yourself) try one of the mystery boxes. You can specify in the comments that you would like something for the home and who the gift is for then let the Babame fairies do the rest.
