Cool sites for unique Christmas gifts

I've heard shipping will be really slow this year. I just mailed Fall greeting cards to my family members and they took 9+ days to get there via USPS!!! But, that's not what this thread is about...

I love this site: https://www.holstee.com/collections/all

I get regular e-mails from them that make me pause and think and reflect. I also have their reflection app, although I prefer to journal with pen/journal.

Anyone else have some great sites for unique, thoughtful Christmas gifts?

I like serrv.org. From their website:

A Better World in the Making
Since 1949

Fighting global poverty through fair and ethical trade
One of the first fair trade organizations in the world, SERRV International began its mission by helping displaced European refugees trade their handcrafts for income after the Second World War. Since then, we've extended our reach to 24 countries worldwide, working to empower over 8,000 artisans and farmers every year by selling their beautiful handcrafts.
Our Mission Statement:
To empower small-scale global artisans and farmers through long-term trading partnerships, helping them build sustainable employment, resources, rights, and a vision of hope in their communities.

Thanks! I've bookmarked both sites. I'll probably post a similar post as Christmas draws nearer.

I've already got my box for my sister loaded up.
