Here at GeckoGifts.co.uk, we source many diverse items, from a variety of fairly trading importers. Everything you find on this site will have been ethically sourced and fairly traded, from a range of countries where the income from the products has a massively beneficial effect on the communities that create these wonderful items. In many cases, this income provides a dignified escape from potential poverty and enables artisans to pass on their skills to future generations.
To celebrate the 3 year anniversary of Gecko Gifts on 14th February 2016, we are proud to say that we are now officially operating as a social enterprise, which means that all profits made will go towards futhering the social and environmental projects that we are involved with. This will be both on an international level through Fair Trade with our current suppliers and by seeking out new artisans to support through trade and on a local level, through the charities & organisations that we have become affilliated with over the years.
Thank you to all of our customers and supporters – past, present and future. You enable our business to do good in the world. Your support really does make a difference to people’s lives.
Here’s to many more years ahead!
We are extremely pleased to announce that as of March 2014 we are proud to be members of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops & suppliers (BAFTS).
Update (2020): We have decided not to renew our BAFTS membership this year, to conserve funding during the uncertainty of the pandemic but hope to be back as members in the near future.
