Give Back with World Vision Gifts this Year #HolidayGiftGuide

I prefer to do my holiday shopping online this year.  Nothing is easy when it comes to taking an 11 month old baby to a store! When you buy gifts online, you don't have to deal with the crowds or lines at all.  Plus you don't have to have people look at you when your child cries. Sitting in my warm house in my pajamas with my credit card in hand sounds like a much better idea! Don't forget a steaming mug of hot cocoa with extra marshmallows either. 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 friends and family with Christmas presents 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.

Everyone needs a quality pair of serving spoons in their kitchen, it's essential.  Instead of having a pair that you can buy anywhere, why not have something really different and unique? I always say the best gifs are handmade and that certainly rings true in this case.

These gorgeous spoons would look perfect in a large salad on your table for Christmas dinner.

With a donation of $75 or more, you or a loved one will be sent these wonderful serving spoons. Your kitchen would absolutely love them.  You'll enjoy using the spoons for years to come, and the donation is made to benefit orphans of the Kamba tribe in Kenya, Africa.  Not only are these olive wood spoons hand carved by women in Kenya, they come in a beautiful bag that symbolizes their culture. 

What's not to love about these fantastic spoons? You'll love their twisted handles that allow you to hold them with ease.  The wood is soft and smooth and the carving is top notch. Every time you use them, it'll make you happy knowing that you helped children in need. 

This year, make it a goal to give back as much as you can.  It's always better to give than receive.
