Break tradition this year with World Vision Alternative Gifts. Need to start something new this holiday season? I'm with you; that's why I love the World Vision gift catalog.
The holidays can get draining after a while. Don't get me wrong; I love to give, but I get tired of people asking me what I want. This year, what I want is for others to give in my place.
World Vision Alternative Gifts
What do I mean by that? Well, I would like for the people who love me the most to buy me a gift that gives to people who need more than I do.
There are so many individuals in this world in greater need than I am, especially children. So if anyone reading this would like to purchase a gift for me, please take a look at what the World Vision catalog has to offer. 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.
In my honor, or the honor of someone you love you can donate animals, medical care, education and so much more.
World Vision Alternative Gifts: Hand Crafted Gifts
If you don't feel comfortable doing that and you feel like you need more than a certificate to hand over to the one's you love this Christmas but still want to make an impact then maybe handcrafted gifts are a better option for you!
This year I had the opportunity to preview some of the handcrafted gifts for myself and I have to say they are beautiful and will make amazing gifts!
