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!
