Worldstock: Unique Christmas Gift Ideas, with Heart

We all have someone on our Holiday lists who is impossible to buy a gift for. They are the people who already have everything within our budgets, and finding a unique gift that will actually surprise them is practically inconceivable.

Enter Worldstock from Overstock.com! Full of eclectic, sustainable and environmentally sound gift ideas, all products in the Worldstock collection are created by local artisans from around the world. Rather than profiting from Worldstock products, Overstock.com aims to create tens of thousands (eventually millions) of jobs within the poorest regions of the world.
