Shopping For The Hard To Shop For

December 8, 2015

This past week Patrick and I have had conversations at length about those hard to shop for people. I’m sure we all have them in our lives. Perhaps it’s not that they’re hard to shop for, they might already have everything they need or have specific values about where they shop from and while you respect that, you’re not quite ready to shell out $150 on an organic cotton t-shirt for them. Instead of spending time and energy browsing stores and wasting money I wanted to share an alternative: giving a gift that’s not a gift! As many of you may know this year I became a World Vision Blog Ambassador and I’m excited to share with you these gifts that give twice, and really just keep giving.

For $5 you could gift a child a set of pencils, the most basic of learning tools, so they may begin to create the future they want.


For $15 you can help protect a family from mosquito-borne diseases by providing them with mosquito nets.


For $25 you could save a child from dying from polio, tetanus and tuberculousis. Your gift would buy childhood immunisation.


The Details 

You have a few options when it comes to these cards.

Printed cards | You’ll receive a gift card and envelope through the post. The order is processed and posted within 4 business days. World Vision asks that you order your printed cards by Friday 11 December to ensure they arrive in time for Christmas.

E-cards | For those of us, like me, who have bright ideas at the last possible moment! These are great for delivery anywhere in the world and allow you to add a personalised message.

Print your own | Another quick and easy option. You’ll get a link to download and print your own card.

You can view the complete World Vision Gift Guide here for a variety of gifts that would work for any budget. I look forward to sharing more of the work that World Vision engages in and my experience with them in the new year. You can also view my older World Vision posts here.
