World Vision Holiday Review

Sometimes buying holiday gifts can feel like an obligation. Another sweater Grandma won’t wear, another tie to add to Dad’s collection – what if the gifts bought out of social necessity went to supply real necessities around the world? This upcoming holiday season, shoppers can reinvent gift lists with items from the World Vision Gift Catalog. These alternative gift ideas, from goats and chickens to life-saving medicine, honor the recipient and create a lasting impact for people in need. The catalog offers nearly 250 gifts online and in the print version ranging in price from $16 to $39,000. These gifts can be purchased in the name of a family member, teacher, co-worker or child and a few examples include:

Hand crafted jewelry

I received the Prosperity Cinnamon Box and the Gertie the Plush Goat Toy in exchange for my honest review

As a memento of this gift, you’ll receive this box of cinnamon.

This beautifully carved cinnamon bark box contains 3 oz. of cinnamon and bears a common Asian character for prosperity.

My Review
You may, or may not remember I worked with World Vision last year also around the holidays. They impressed me with their products and their vision then, so I was more than happy to work with them again this year.  This year I got the cinnamon and the goat. I love cinnamon. I use it in a lot of different things from toast to hot chocolate to baking. This is a beautifully crafted box that I love having on my counter. When we have guests they comment on it, on its design and also on the cinnamon scent that it’s infused with. 

Gertie the Goat I chose for my son. He’s 6 but still really loves his stuffed animals. Gertie is cute and sweet, and small enough he can carry her around in his pocket.  I love that you can get such beautiful handcrafted gifts for the people in your life, and be helping out an amazing cause at the same time! If you’re looking to give, and give back at the same time, check out everything World Vision has to offer!
