check out connected goods. their prices are a little higher but they are made by fair trade artisans. a little more money to know that the laborers are being paid fair wages is worth it :). https://www.connectedgoods.com/Woven-Baskets.html

I once let my husband (then boyfriend) believe that we weren't doing much for his bday - just dinner with a few friends. But I had secretly called his boss and arranged for him to have the day off without his knowing. When he went to his car to leave for work, he found a note telling him where to go instead. I had a day of activities planned and a party with friends that evening. I haven't been able to top that again!
