Ethical + Festive: Holiday Traditions
Christmas is the perfect time to invest in intentional gifting, sustainable decor, and artisan made goods.
We’d like to share with you some of our favorite Ethical & Festive holiday traditions.
Countdown to Christmas
We anticipate the arrival of Christmas through Advent. Use our free Rwandan-themed Advent Activity Calendar and join us! Download, print, assemble, place into your favorite Azizi Life Basket, and read each day’s activity to bring your family closer to Rwanda and the celebration of Christmas! DOWNLOAD THE AZIZI LIFE ADVENT CALENDAR.
We celebrate artistry, connection, and fair wages for creators by adding hand woven ornaments, tassel garlands, and baskets to our Christmas decor! SHOP ARTISAN MADE CHRISTMAS DECOR.
Hospitality with Story
We serve guests with a variety of hand carved utensils and serving boards from the Macy White Home Collection while sharing the story of the woodcarver who made them. Every Azizi Life product includes a tag with the maker’s handwritten name and name of their artisan cooperative. SHOP HAND CARVED UTENSILS AND SERVING BOARDS.
We try to source as many things as possible from ethical small businesses, without simply defaulting to Amazon. Companies like Simple Switch help us to spend more of our gifting budget on transparent and sustainable brands so that our dollar has a greater impact- from gift maker to gift receiver.

Investing in Communities
Azizi Life partners with local communities in rural Rwanda to provide a variety of services – from adult literacy programs to renewable and clean home energy. We donate in honor of loved ones and invest in artisan communities! DONATE TO IMPACT ARTISAN COMMUNITIES.
