That plastic singing reindeer, the life-size cardboard cut-out of Harry Styles, yet another tea towel . . . No one wants to buy gifts that will end up in January’s council clean-up (no offense, Harry)!
In 2022, many of us are mindful of the importance of choosing meaningful gifts that both speak to the heart and align with our values. And those of us who are Christians want to keep Jesus, or the world he’s called us to serve, central at Christmas time.
This is where Better World Gift Cards come in. What could be more meaningful that providing a family or community overseas with something that could help them overcome poverty?
And you don’t have to stop there. You can still give a nifty little something to fit perfectly with our cards. Check out these options for all the precious people in your world.
Piglets & Hampers
$50 + $100 = $150
Buying this card provides piggies and training in breeding for a family in Nepal or Cambodia. These little porcine heroes mean families can access clothes, food, school, and other needs. Match it with a beautiful food hamper to delight a family (maybe chuck in a mud mask too)! They’ll be happy as pigs in mud.
The Sweetest Bees & Honey
$40 + $10 = $50
Want to make a difference to an at-risk Kenyan family? Support them with some bees! Bee farms offer a lifesaving, sustainable income for families and our local partners also offer training to help farmers keep their bees happy and healthy. Pair with a jar of local honey for your own sweetheart.
In The Chicken Business
$20 + $50 = $70
Nepalese and Kenyan families will benefit when you purchase one of our chicken cards. With some starter chooks, and the training and support to get them going, farmers can quickly develop a family business. Pair with a meal voucher to a favourite restaurant to share the love with someone lovely.
Goats Make Delicious Cheese
$40 + $20 = $60
Oh those gorgeous goats! In Nepal and Kenya these fuzzy little guys and girls make a huge difference to a family struggling to survive. Goats provide milk, manure and offspring to sell. They’re also super cute! Pair with some delicious goat’s cheese for your favourite foodie.
Give A Hug With A Blanket
$15 + $25 = $40
Looking for a gift that feels like a hug? Consider a blanket card. These cards help provide warmth and comfort for families fleeing conflict in Syria. Why not match the kindness of a blanket for a refugee with a soft fluffy blanket for the ones you want to wrap your arms around?
Indulge With Some Hand Soap
$5 + $15 = $20
Soap saves lives. When you buy our Hand Soap card, families in Cambodia and Kenya are given the means and education to stop the spread of infection and disease. Pairing this card with some indulgent bath products makes a beautiful gift for someone special.
Deep Dive With A Fish Farm
$80 + $50 = $130
Did you know that fish can be farmed? In rural Nepal, our Christian partners help families set up eco-friendly fishponds that generate a steady income, and provide plenty to eat. The perfect gift to match this card is a snorkel set! Help your friends see the beauty of fish in multiple ways!

‘Tis the season to be (mindful in our giving and) jolly. Give your loved ones something meaningful this Christmas.
