How many of you give gift cards as gifts during the holiday season? Yes, I am guilty of taking the easy way out and doing this. Did you know that gift cards topped the list of popular holiday gifts for 2013 (according to Nielsen.com)?
Instead of gift cards why don’t you get creative this holiday season by giving your friends and loved ones poverty-fighting holiday gifts from the 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog?
More than 250 items, ranging in price from $10 to $39,000, are available online and in the print catalog to help improve quality of life for women, children and families in the U.S. and around the world. When you give where it is needed most, you can receive handcrafted gifts that are perfect for holiday baking or entertaining.
Here are three gift ideas you can find in the World Vision gift catalog:
Prosperity Cinnamon: Know a friend or family member who loves to bake? Each beautifully-carved cinnamon bark box contains 3 oz. of cinnamon and bears a common Asian character for prosperity. Vietnam’s renowned sweet cinnamon is a renewable resource collected from the Cassia tree, sold to benefit generations of hard-working families.
Fair-Trade Coffee Set: For the coffee lover, this 12 oz. coffee set is blended by OneCup.org, using delicious flavors from Ethiopia, Sumatra, and Costa Rica, and is delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women.
Hand-Carved Serving Spoons: A perfect gift for holiday entertaining, each beautiful set of two hand-carved olivewood serving spoons is delivered in a gift bag of African fabric hand-sewn by local women. The serving spoons are made to benefit orphans of the Kamba tribe in Kenya.
Wouldn’t one of these gifts be perfect for someone on your holiday list this year?
