Would you believe that the number one thing on Smalls Christmas list this year was World Peace?! Last year she wanted to see the real Santa, and now this… World Vision has a Gift Catalogue that offers a multitude of gifts that create a measurable impact in global communities. $20 can get a family some baby chicks, plus, gifts of livestock and agricultural products also support and provide training and education in animal husbandry, agricultural production, market access and business skills to help families increase their income over the long-term so their children can have brighter futures. So, it might not be World Peace but darn it, it’s pretty close to the next best thing in my books.
Nothing says I love you more than chocolate and cheese, amirite? Give the gift of experience with a guided snowshoe tour through a winter wonderland on Cypress Mountain. Let your headlamp guide the way to the Hollyburn Lodge, where you will enjoy a delicious homemade cheese fondue dinner. Seriously, you had me at cheese. If they didn’t love you before, they will after this!
A Good Book
‘Tis the season to curl up in front of the fire and behind a good book. Personally, I’m on a bit of a self-help kick lately so Brené Brown, Cheryl Strayed and Jen Sincero are a few of my faves. I highly recommend any of these as a good place to start: Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection, You Are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Awesome Life and Wild: From lost to found on the Pacific Crest Trail. Don’t trust some random mom from the internet? No worries, many of these titles also made Oprah’s Book Club list, and she arguably has more street cred than I do. Feeling extra generous this holiday season? Consider a Kindle or other portable, electronic reading device so that hard to shop for person on your list can take their entire library with them wherever they go.
So there you have it! 5 Gifts ideas for the impossible to shop for on your holiday list. I hope these have been helpful, and if nothing else, you now have 5 gift ideas that you know *I* would love… So, there’s always that!
