UPDATE: BE SURE AND LOOK AT ALL THE COMMENTS PEOPLE ARE LEAVING. THERE ARE LOTS OF OTHER WEBSITES AND IDEAS THAT PEOPLE ARE LEAVING. CHECK THEM ALL OUT!
Christmas is 2 months away. Oh my goodness. I would usually like to have all of my Christmas gifts bought by now, but the move has put me in a kink this year. Not one has been bought. UGH
This year we said we would only buy gifts that help others. So, no movies, not gift cards, no last minute Target trips looking for the “perfect” $15 gift. I hate that. No more.
This video is fabulous and puts so many things into perspective for gift giving:
Liz has some great ideas on making hand made gifts this year. I love that idea and wish I could …. I’m just not crafty. As much as I try to be, I’m not.
So … here are some gift giving ideas that I thought I would share with you that will not only provide a fabulous gift for you to give those you love, but they will also help the world, or an organization, or a family adopting. Enjoy checking these out!
Give a gift of sponsorship. Sponsor a child for a year through REAL HOPE FOR HAITI. For $200 you could send a child in Haiti to school. So instead of giving your college student $200 worth of clothes they’ll only wear for a year, sponsor a child in Haiti for a year.
Need a beautiful baby blanket. Support the Setliffe’s adoption of a little girl from Ethiopia by purchasing a great hand made blanket. Every baby needs one of these! Visit AUNTIE EM’S CREATIONS to get your own blanket
JAMBOKIDS – dolls that celebrate different heritages.
This family is adopting two sweet boys from Haiti and she has written a poetry book about adoption andthey are selling t shirts as well.
This lady is doing holiday mini-sessions of photography on Nov 1. If you live in the Houston area, check her out. She is great and this will help her family with their adoption from Haiti!
The Livesay family lives in Haiti and does great work there. We love this family. Troy has created a great photo book with pictures from Haiti. Check out this book. This would make a great gift for a family adopting from Haiti. Know someone that loves coffee table books, this is for you!
Tamara has started making some shirts that are very cute! All four of my kids have one! I love them! She can do custom orders, or you can see what she has done that you might enjoy! Go HERE to see her shirts. Tamara gives some of her profits to REAL HOPE FOR HAITI as well. I love that!
I know there are millions of other things that are being sold to help people. If you know of them, please leave them in the comments for us all to see and know about!
