Six unique gifts to give this Christmas
Choose gifts from MCC’s Christmas Giving Guide to make a difference this year
This Christmas, whether you’re eagerly looking forward to choosing the perfect gifts or needing a little inspiration to finish your list, we’re here to help. Every gift in our Christmas Giving Guide helps share God’s love with others around the world.
Here are six unique gifts from the guide you can give your loved ones this Christmas.
For the green thumb
Does your loved one enjoy pulling out weeds or watering their extensive houseplant collection? Give the gift of a bountiful vegetable garden. Gardens provide families in places like India with nutritious food and a way to earn an income.
For the foodie
As every dedicated home cook can attest, you need the right kitchen tools for the job. Imagine trying to dice onions without a knife or cutting board! The gift of an eco-friendly stove helps families cook with 60% less firewood, saving trees and reducing the time needed to make food.
Give an eco-friendly stove for $15
For the avid angler
If your loved one’s ideal summer weekend involves a peaceful lake and a fishing rod, we’ve got the perfect suggestion. Choose the gift of fish — we promise this one won’t get away. Stocking a fish pond in places like Cambodia helps families support themselves by raising and selling fish.
Give fish to stock a pond for $20
For the book lover
If you can always find your loved one reading the latest novel, they’ll really appreciate the gift of a book. There’s no need for them to make room on their bookshelf, as the gift of books helps students around the world learn about peace.
Give books for peace libraries for $12
For the crafter
Is your loved one often up to their elbows in fabric, glitter or paint? Keep the creative spark going by giving the gift of a sewing machine. This gift gives the opportunity to start a tailoring business for people in places like Uganda.
Give a sewing machine for $150
For the busy bee
We all know someone who always seems to be on the go, buzzing from one task to another. Get them a gift that works just as hard as they do. A bee box helps families start their own beehive to produce and sell honey.
No matter which gift from the guide you choose, you’ll be making a difference this Christmas. You can view the entire Christmas Giving Guide here.
Every gift also includes the option to send an e-card to your loved one, letting them know about the gift you’ve chosen in their name. Happy gifting and merry Christmas!
