Thanksgiving is over. And with Dec. 25 only a few weeks away, it’s time to make some headway on your Christmas shopping list.
But what do you get everyone?
If you’re still struggling to decide, here are three more gift ideas based on different personality types. Each of the items below can be given in honor of your family member or friend and will help a person in desperate need around the world.
Think about each member of your family. Is there someone who loves crafting? Perhaps that individual has a separate craft room in her home filled with colorful fabrics, paint, stencils, buttons, and whatever else you can imagine.
Why not give a sewing machine in your loved one’s honor?
This gift has the power to change someone’s life. With a sewing machine, a person in need can start a tailoring business and use his or her talents to make extra income for the family.
Your gift will give someone like Linda the tools to escape poverty! Click here to read Linda’s story and learn more about the power of your gift.
Do you know someone who loves studying the Scriptures so much that he has a library full of different Bible translations, commentaries, and devotionals?
Give this person an especially meaningful gift this year by donating Bibles to North Korea in his honor.
Even though getting caught with a Bible in North Korean can mean 15 years in prison or worse, North Korean Christians are still begging for them! They know how valuable the comfort of God’s Word is and how desperately their nation needs the Gospel.
And since underground Christians share their Bibles with trusted family and friends, your gift will reach multiple people. After one North Korean woman received a Bible, she even helped plant 12 new churches!
Your gift recipient will love the fact that your present to him is bringing God’s Word to one of the most spiritually dark places on earth!
More than likely, you know someone who has a shoe obsession. This is the person whose closet is full of boots, sneakers, and sandals … and yet there’s always room for another pair.
You know this person loves shoes, so you know that he or she would want a child in need to have a pair, as well.
Why not provide shoes for a child this Christmas in your loved one’s name?
Your gift will not only bring a smile to your friend or family member, but it will also help a child like Johncy. Before she received her own pair of shoes, Johncy’s feet were cut and bruised and always stayed wet from the rain. Now, her feet are protected, and she can safely walk to school!
Whether you give sewing machines, Bibles, shoes, or another life-changing gift in your loved ones name this Christmas … you can be sure that your generosity will help transform lives around the world!
