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:

I received the Mango Wood Beaded Bracelet at no cost in exchange for an honest review – This beautiful, beaded bracelet is handmade in Indonesia. 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 – what better way to honor a mother in your life than with this gorgeous bracelet!
Help where it’s needed most — AND receive a gift for yourself or someone you care about! Your gift to help where most needed will address specific, urgent needs that might otherwise go unmet for a child, family, or community.
This is a beautiful piece of jewelry. I love bracelets, the more unique the better. This bracelet is handmade in Indonesia and purchases help provide sustainable income for the women to care for their children. The mango wood is dark and contrasts beautifully with the multi colored beads. The bracelet has ** strands, and because they are handmade each one is unique. The wood clasp is easy to operate one handed, and the beads stretch to fit a wide range of wrist sizes. The bracelet is comfortable to wear, the wood does not bother my arm or skin. The bracelet does not get in the way when I am working at the computer all day. I get many comments and compliments on this bracelet and I love to tell people about World Vision and what they do!
