Welcome to the first in a series of LOCAL GIFT GUIDES! For this one we're taking you to One Ocean One Love Shop in Rockport, MA. (For you out of towners they've got an Etsy shop where you can grab their printed apparel here). We've curated a selection of their products that you can buy knowing that they are produced ethically and in most cases also supporting a good cause. Here goes:
