Working on getting ideas for Christmas gifts? Check out the World Vision Gift Catalog for gifts that share hope for the holidays!
I love this time of year, the time when the holidays are approaching and we’re planning on which gifts to friends and loved ones. Gift giving can be so much fun!
Some of my favorite holiday memories are of making handmade Christmas gifts when I was younger. Drawings, crochet, embroidery, wood carvings, I tried my hand at a lot of things and really enjoyed them all. There is so much purpose and joy in giving to others!
One of the coolest ways to give gifts this holiday season is by choosing gifts that support a good cause. The World Vision Gift Catalog offers gifts with a multiplier effect – positively impacting the giver, receiver and those in need.
We love the work that World Vision does around the world! World Vision has been offering the Gift Catalog for over 25 years, and they’re a charity of integrity. They work hard to maximize the impact of the money that is donated to them, so it can positively impact more people around the world.
There are a couple different ways you can use the World Vision Gift Catalog for gifting this holiday season: you can donate money or purchase items (like medication, small business loans, or livestock) in the gift catalog in someone’s name, or you can donate to where most needed and get an artisan gift that you can give to a friend or keep.
The handcrafted gifts from World Vision are a great way to give meaningful gifts this holiday while also making a positive impact on those in need. You can choose from several different kinds of gifts from fair trade artisans all over the world who make a living and support their families from their craftsmanship. You get to give a beautiful gift and help people support their families!
Last holiday season, I wrote about the World Vision Gift Catalog and the unique handcrafted gifts we received, and many of those items are still available this year! There are quite a few awesome gift items to choose from – there is something for everyone.
Here are a few of the items that you can find in the World Vision gift catalog:
The Hope bracelet, designed by Patricia Heaton for World Vision and created by artisans in India who are supported by fair trade business. The name was purposefully chosen for this bracelet to encourage people to see hope, and to share hope with others through supporting those in need.
Hand-carved soapstone box made by artisans in Kenya (such a fun design!).
This roomy embroidered tote bag was made in Vietnam by women artisans. Most of the artisans making these totes are disabled and are able to overcome poverty with their work.
Add some style to your wardrobe with this beautiful infinity scarf made by weavers in South India. These artisans make a sustainable income from creating these scarves.
