2015 Holiday Gift Guide: H.O.P.E.

“Rejoicing in hope, persevering in tribulation, devoted in prayer.” – Romans 12:12

This verse is the focus of H.O.P.E. Standing for Hang On Pray Everyday, H.O.P.E. is a family-owned Christian business. Established after a series of unfortunate events surrounding their family, Jim & Melissa Beckett have made it their goal to put forth a message of hope through faith & prayer. Drawing from their own experiences, they seek to remind others that God never leaves nor forsakes us.

By buying gifts from H.O.P.E., consumers are also benefitting others. 25% of profits go towards life, marriage, & family ministries. This year, keep Christ in Christmas through reminding your loved ones to have H.O.P.E. in each new day.

Shoppers can choose a recipient specific box (For Dad, Student, etc.) for a number of H.O.P.E. items together or piece together your own collection. My husband is fond of their coffee mugs. He is able to witness to others of the hope our own family has found while enjoying his morning coffee everyday. Best of all, the message on the mug is simple, to the point, & beautifully written.ImageProxy

 

 

 

If you have loved ones in care facilities, I’d recommend one of their fleece blankets. For the techies in your life, they offer accessories for their gadgets.

Remind your teens to drive safely & rely on God today with a keychain or jewelry displaying the message of hope. From clothing items to stationary, there’s something for all those on your Holiday shopping list.

ImageProxy (3)  Christmas is a time of renewed hope. After all, the Savior of the World was born! What better way to honor Him than reminding those around us to H.O.P.E. in Him each day.

2015 Holiday Gift Guide: World Vision: Gifts with Purpose

For many people, the Holiday season is a time to give charitably. Sometimes, it can be difficult to decide which organization to give to & unfortunately, which ones are legitimately helping those in need. This year, consider World Vision.
“World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families, and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. 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”

Through their 2015 ‘World Vision Gift Catalog’, you can double the impact they make. When you give to the ‘Where Most Needed’ option, you can receive free handcrafted gifts. Artisans from India, Vietnam, Southeast Asia & India have provided their work. One example is turquoise jewelry.GetAttachmentTurquoise Jewelry ( Necklace, Bracelet, Earrings)—This elegant jewelry trio provides the perfect pop of color for holiday outfits. Add a vibrant twist to a classic black dress or complement your favorite trendy work outfit with this necklace ($85), drop earrings ($55) and bracelet ($75). These unique and nickel-free pieces were designed by Delhi artisans and are available individually.”

Whether individually or as a complete set, these are really beautiful pieces. The necklace has a 20″ strand. It’s a beautifully feminine piece. While they’re great stand alone pieces, wearing the whole set together will really set off an outfit. These artisans are SO incredibly talented! All three pieces are quality & will make FANTASTIC gifts. Crafted items such as these are providing work. When you’re complimented on their beauty (& you will be), explain how World Vision’s gift selection helps overcome poverty with handcrafted work.

World Vision offers an array of unique jewelry pieces. But, if you’re looking for a unique gift for a hard-to-buy-for relative or a Secret Santa gift for the office, consider the ‘Christmas Star ornament’ from India or hand-carved serving spoons. Guaranteed they’re gifts that your recipient won’t already have.

Some of Word Vision’s gifts aren’t able to be wrapped. Have friends who are dedicated environmentalists? Consider the Clean Water Fund. A donation in your friend’s name provides safe water to drink. Donate to fund all or a share of a foot-powered water pump or hand-drilled well. Let your friends know that the wells are dug without truck-mounted rigs. These wells last longer & use natural compression.

For $35, you can purchase 5 ducks to provide eggs for a family, for years! How cool is that? Goats, chickens, even cows- any of these can be purchased for a needy family. I can’t think of a more meaningful gift than to know you’ve provided a sustainable food source for a family. Think of the implications of that for a moment. Nutrition, being provided to a family, that may be nurturing a future doctor or entrepreneur who’ll grow up to be a world changer. All because you gave a gift during the holidays. That’s huge in the big picture. What a beautiful way to keep Christ in Christmas!

Take some time to visit World Vision & experience all the ways they are making huge differences every day. Find them at the following Medias:

In this season of giving, wouldn’t it be nice to know that your gifts keep giving, not just for a season, but for a lifetime? World Vision’s 2014 Gift Catalog provides an opportunity for you to purchase a gift that will bless people you’ve never met. Whether it’s disaster relief or to fight human trafficking, World Vision is on the ground making a major impact. Taking Christ’s love to over 100 countries, they are truly acting as His hands & feet. When you give, either through donation or purchase, they act as proper stewards of the money by furthering the Gospel & ministering to the needy. cuff-bracelet---india_d4041975For example, this delicate Silver Vines Cuff benefits artisans who’ve been unfairly treated. By promoting fair trade practices, these artisans from India are able to support their families & still produce beautiful gifts. Purchasing a gift such as this tells these workers that they’re valued & appreciated. This is only one example of the wares offered by World Vision.

Handcrafted gifts such as bracelets, scarves, & headbands all benefit their makers & their community. But the giving doesn’t stop there either.

Choose white, orange (pictured), turquoise, green or yellow. Better yet, get them all & have one for every outfit. These would also be awesome stocking stuffers! Complete with a 21-1/2 inch change, these eye-catching flowers are sizable, but yet, very comfortable to wear.old 003

2014 Holiday Gift Guide Presents: Kennebug Boutique

Kennebug 001
After we pass the age of attending elementary school, we all tackle the same holiday issue: what do I get for my mom? Any proud momma loves things that proudly proclaim her children & her love for them. Kennebug Boutique understands this love.
A wonderful Michigan-based business, Kennebug has been providing gorgeous personalized jewelry & gifts since 2002. One example of their beautiful products is this necklace, personalized for me by Kennebug. I adore it! All three of my boys’ names & birthstones are brilliantly displayed on this hand stamped piece.
P1015434_239x180The ‘Greatest Love Personalized Hand Stamped Mothers Grandmas Necklace’ is available for $45.99. Swarovski crystals are used to represent each name. Each includes sterling silver ball chain necklace & is a 1” sterling silver disc. Chain length can be chosen from 16 to 20 inches based on mom’s preference. Then you can choose your names, birthstones, & even the word to go in between the brackets. On mine, we have a ‘T’ for our last name. I’m so pleased that our necklace is even featured on Kennebug’s page!
As a mom, this is one of the most beautiful gifts that I could receive. Plus, the kids felt great to see their names on jewelry for me. These gifts are ones you treasure as your kids grow up. With one grown & one graduating this year, I will especially cherish this piece.
Kennebug 009
Kennebug Boutique has pieces for everyone you can imagine. Pet parents, rejoice! Kennebug has jewelry to celebrate your kiddos too. I think that’s so sweet.
