This post was created in partnership with World Vision. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review, but all opinions within are my own.
With the holiday season just around the corner I want to introduce you to World Vision's beautiful handcrafted gifts from around the world. These gifts are not only unique and handmade, but they are also meaningful.
Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has grown in popularity as a gift-giving alternative. Over 650,000 people were helped through funds generated by the Catalog last year alone.
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 both in the U.S. and around the world.
World Vision was kind enough to supply me with 6 beautiful handcrafted items from their 2016 Gift Catalog so that I could experience them for myself. When the items arrived and I took a look at each item I was immediately struck with how detailed and well-made each item is. It is obvious that the artisans poured their heart into making these gifts, and I quickly feel in love with each and every one of them.
Tree of Life Votive Holder – The 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.
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.
Silver Vines Cuff – Women and girls will love wearing this elegant adjustable silver cuff bracelet designed by artisans in Old Delhi, India, and decorated with an intricately-laced vine pattern. Each bracelet supports their families through fair trade practices. $85.
Why pick up a generic gift at the store when you can get beautiful gifts handmade by artisans around the world? Aside from giving a unique handmade gift, when you shop the World Vision Gift Catalog, you are also helping to fight poverty and improve the quality of life for children and families around the world.
