World Vision Gift Ideas & Giveaway

I was waiting until November but now that it's already the 10th, I've started to think about the upcoming holiday season. I've done a little shopping and even purchased a few gifts for my nephews. However, I still have a ton of shopping to do... and I can bet you're in a similar situation!

I think I can make things a little easier for you with the The World Vision Gift Catalog! There are so many beautiful hand-made gifts available and even more importantly you will be helping people all over the world who are in need! Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Last year alone, more than 822,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog.  

The 2015 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. I found so many amazing gift ideas for myself and others on my list.

It's really difficult to chose just one item for review, but I selected the Mango Wood Bracelet. Isn't it gorgeous and, to be honest, the picture doesn't do it justice. The lovely mango wood beaded bracelet was handcrafted in Indonesia, and the colorful beads guarantee that it will match every outfit. A creative community on the island of Java makes these unique bracelets to help provide a sustainable income and care for their children. A devoted mother leads this artisan group so it's the perfect gift to celebrate a mother in your life for a donation of only $45.

There are so many special items that it's really difficult to choose only a few to feature. I personally love (and wear all of the time!) the Silver Vines Cuff that is designed by artisans in Old Delhi, India and free for a donation of $85. I received one of these bracelets last year, and I can assure you it's both gorgeous and durable. I also love the Royal Silk Scarf that is yours with a gift of $95 and the Balinese Multi-strand Necklace which is free with a gift of $85. Make sure you check out all of their handcrafted gifts here.

Everything in this catalog, whether it be one of the handcrafted gifts that you receive for a donation or even a donation in someone's name for ducks, goats, chickens, etc., would make an amazing gift for someone special. You can also purchase a share of a hand-drilled well, medicine, clothes, and more for people who really need assistance. My family has been a supporter of World Vision for years, and it's always nice to give back... especially this time of year.

Giveaway alert: Thanks to the wonderful folks at World Vision, I have a Mango Wood Bracelet to share with one lucky reader. To enter, just fill out the form below before November 23rd at 11:59 p.m. EST. I will randomly select and notify the winner the following day. This contest is open to those of you with U.S. addresses only. Good luck!
