Do you have a special someone in your family, who already has everything? Someone, who is just difficult to find gifts for? Or perhaps, you just want to do something special for someone you love or for someone in need this holiday season. Then, perhaps it is time to check out the World Vision Gift Catalog, which is booming with great, hand-crafted, high-quality gifts that sends a special message to the gift receiver as well as a much-needed donation to a family in need here in America or across the world.

Last year, more than 800,000 people in the U.S. and around the world were helped through purchases from the World Vision gift catalog. You can find gift catalog items for as little as $10, and for a donation of $16, you can help feed a whole family in the U.S. for a day, or you can provide a solar lamp for a student, who needs light to do his homework.

The World Vision Gift Catalog is simple to use, you simply purchase a gift in the person’s name, who you are buying a gift for. The person will then received a personalized card, which describes the gift as well as the impact the gift is making.

This year marks the 18th annual edition of the World Vision Gift Catalog, and it has more than 100 great gifts in the price range from $16 to $39,000. Last year more than 350,000 animals were distributed to families in needs, and of those animals, more than 67,000 goats were purchased by donors.

World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization dedicated to helping children and the communities that they live in around the world.
