Holiday Gift Guide: Noonday Collection Gifts for Men & Women

I received no compensation for this post. All opinions are 100% my own and honest.

Are you looking for beautiful gifts this holiday season that will also help break the cycle of poverty around the world? Noonday Collection sells gorgeous jewelry, home, and gift items that perfect for men and women. 

Noonday Collection's mission is to create economic opportunity for the vulnerable. We partner with artisans in the developing world, empowering them to grow sustainable businesses. By creating a marketplace for their goods, we create dignified jobs at living wages. This allows our artisans to earn more in order to support their families. We also offer no interest loans and make advance payments on orders. This way we are able to shoulder the costs of materials and build a lasting relationship based on trust. We offer scholarship programs and emergency assistance. Noonday Collection also donates a portion of sales from adoption trunk shows to place orphans in forever families.

Some of my favorite Noonday products include the Celestial Necklace, made with love in India:

and the Galaxy Wrap Bracelet, made with love in Guatemala: 

This hand carved Nahuala Tray from Guatemala would be a great gift for the man in your life as a catch all tray for their wallet, keys, and change.

Noonday Collection features many items that are $30 and under that would make perfect holiday gifts.  

Victoria Johnson is a Noonday Consultant who lives in Washington DC and she is passionate about Noonday's mission:

Noonday Collection uses fashion and design to provide a platform for the vulnerable and marginalized to sell their handmade accessories.  This opportunity is an important part in breaking the cycle of poverty in developing countries through the power of dignified work.  As an Ambassador, I have the privilege of displaying these pieces at in home trunk shows and telling the stories behind all of our pieces.  The sale of each bracelet, scarf, purse, and earring has a real-time impact on the lives of the artisans who craft them with love.  More orders translates into consistent work and consistent work allows the artisans and their families to rise above survival mode and to ensure their children have a better start in life.  

Victoria is running a Noonday mystery hostess event now through December 9th. She is offering one lucky winner the chance to claim the hostess rewards from an upcoming event! Enter to win a $150 gift card and any two items at half price.
Entries are given for the following:
1. Place an order through her website, and you will get an entry for every $25 you spend. Be sure to enter Patriot PTSA as your Trunk Show Name. 

2. Tag Victoria on Facebook or Instagram in a picture of you wearing Noonday and you will get one entry per post.
3. One entry for each gift card you purchase.
4. Book a show with Victoria and get five entries.

I highly recommend getting your orders in fast!  Noonday Collection has exploded in popularity and there are a finite number of each item available for purchase.  Their marketing team does a great job in forecasting the number of each item that will be needed for the season, however, there are always surprises in which items are most popular.  For example, the Rustic Leather Tote has been a smash hit this season.  A real goat leather bag, handmade, for $148 - who wouldn't go crazy over that?  The thing is, this bag is made 100% by hand - no machine ever touches the leather - so even though they had a large number of bags in stock, the reorder process goes slower with this item.  The artisans are thrilled to have such big reorders come in, however, it just takes time for them to make the bags and ship them. Seriously how gorgeous is the Tote? It's totally handmade with love in India:
