Holiday Gift Guide: Give Back with World Vision Gifts

I prefer to do my holiday shopping online this year.  At 9 months pregnant walking around a store buying gifts is utterly exhausting.  When you buy gifts online, you don't have to deal with the crowds or lines at all.  Sitting in my warm house in my pajamas with my credit card in hand sounds like a much better idea! When you shop online this holiday season, why not look into new gift ideas that give back with just a click of the mouse?



World Vision began in 1996 and has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative.  This wonderful cause offers more than 250 items online and in a print catalog which range in prices.  When you purchase a handmade item, you'll help improve the quality of life for women, children, and families in the US and around the world.  Give help where it is needed most and receive handcrafted beautiful goods from artisans in Kenya, Bali, India, and other countries.  Delight your gift recipients with items such as jewelry and household decor to soapstone boxes and scarves.  You'll feel good knowing that you're making a difference in a family's life and giving a loved one something they'll enjoy.

How gorgeous is this soapstone box? Leave it out on your side table or nightstand as it will surely be a conversation starter.

This hand-carved African soapstone box designed and etched by artisans in Kenya offers a safe place to store necklaces and rings.   I love the pairing of the giraffe along with the blue background and other patterns.  Each pattern has its own personality but everything meshes together well.  This box will compliment any decor, and looks great on its own if you don't choose to store anything in it.  

I know that anyone who receives this under the tree on Christmas morning will be truly delighted.  Families in Kenya will also be equally as happy as the income from this sale helps provide medical care for them.

  2. I think it is important to try and give people a helping hand and to pay it forward. They do both and I think it's awesome.

  3. I like that I can choose what my donation would be for and who to help. I think it is great that you can donate 4 chickens and the family would have meat and eggs and hopefully continue that cycle raising chickens. I also think it is a great idea that I can in turn receive a beautiful hand crafted item for a donation. I think World Vision is doing a great job!
