Holiday Gift Guide: World Vision: Gifts that Give Back! + Giveaway

**Complimentary products received in exchange for our honest review.  All opinions are ours and ours alone**


In 2015, Americans gave over $373 billion to charitable organizations, a 4.1 percent increase from 2014 (National Philanthropic Trust). As charitable giving continues to grow, holiday shoppers are searching for reputable organizations to support. This year, I encourage you to place your trust in the World Vision Gift Catalog.


The 2016 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world. As the holiday season approaches, we would like to show y'all a few of the great gift ideas...beautiful handcrafted items made by artisans around the world featured in the Gift Catalog.

For the Home:


Tree of Life Votive Holder – This lovely votive holder is handmade from cast-off materials. Artisans in India work hard to raise themselves out of poverty and help light the way for their children’s education. $65


Upcycled Artisanal Bowl – This stunning bowl is up-cycled from reclaimed industrial waste such as wires and metal. Artisans in India have hand bent and soldered each piece into inspirational shapes to create this artistic and elaborate bowl that is great as a decorative piece or to hold special items. $135


History’s First Coffee Blend – Citrus and chocolate pair up in this 10-ounce whole bean blend of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe and Sumatra Permata Gayo coffees from farmers who are overcoming poverty with their earnings. An olivewood scoop and African bag complete the package. $75

For Your Closet:


Turquoise Medallion Necklace – Handmade by families in Delhi, this brightly-beaded medallion necklace adds a bold pop of color to any outfit. $75


Royal Silk Scarf – This gorgeous silk scarf adds color to the holidays and supports the needs of children and families worldwide. The luxurious silk is woven by Vietnam’s Ma Chau villagers, who receive sustainable income through their craft. $95


Mango Wood Beaded Bracelet - One creative community on the island of Java makes these unique bracelets to help provide a sustainable income and care for their children. The artisan group is led by a mother who pours her heart into her craft. $45

These are really lovely gifts!  They are so unique and both the giver and the receiver can appreciate that these gifts give back in a truly awesome way!  Warm fuzzies all the way around:)

The money raised from your purchase of these handcrafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world.

Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 650,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog.
