Fashionable Hostess Gifts That Give Back

I am partnering with World Vision to share these hostess gift ideas with you. All opinions are my own.

The holiday season is right around the corner with Thanksgiving and Christmas gathers to attend. Why not say "thank you" to your hostess with a meaningful gift that also gives back? World Vision’s Gift Catalog offers gifts that have a multiplier effect—positively impacting the giver, receiver, and those in need.


I am a huge proponent of supporting companies that give back and offer hope to those in need. These gifts help support clean water, food, education, sexual exploitation, job training and other areas of need. The World Vision Catalog has everything from beautiful artisan gifts to gifts like medicine, livestock, or clean water that saves lives.



When a donation is made to World Vision's “Where Most Needed” fund, donors can choose from different items (like the ones below) to receive as a meaningful memento of their gift.

Here are some of my favorite picks for a hostess gift:




The Heaton Hope Bracelet – This year, everyone’s favorite TV mom, Patricia Heaton, has partnered with World Vision to design the Patricia Heaton Hope Bracelet. The name was purposely chosen to encourage people to feel hopeful about our world and to give hope, through generosity, to those in need.

Vietnamese Tote – Disabled Vietnamese women gain independence by creating these beautiful hand-embroidered purses.

African Soapstone Box – Talented artisans bring raw stone to life with etched designs and hand dyed finishes that showcase modern African creativity and provide a sustainable way out of poverty.

Charm Necklace – Made by a gold and silver plating specialist in India, the unique and elegant charms make this necklace a subtle statement piece.

Infinity Scarf  – This fashion-forward accessory is made by artisans in India who are trained in the loom industry to attain skills and a sustainable livelihood.

Wraparound Ring – A vibrant, adjustable ring with aqua and blue chalcedony stones set in metal, made by female artisans in India.


World Vision is a Christian humanitarian organization dedicated to working with children, families and their communities worldwide to reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty and injustice. World Vision serves all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.
