ChildFund Gifts that Grow 

When you’re stuck for a present idea, ChildFund New Zealand has ‘goat’ your back with Gifts that Grow. The gift of a goat will help make a difference to the lives of children and their families in need overseas long after the festive season has passed. Beyond their cute and playful reputation, goats provide a valuable food source for families in developing countries to feed their children, earn an income and create a sustainable future, free from poverty. www.childfund.org.nz/gifts-that-grow             

Tearfund Gifts for Life 

Consider giving a life changing gift like clean water, jandals or tool to someone in the developing world on behalf of your loved one. “In our slum, we’re surrounded by filthy water. The water filter we were given keeps us healthy and means I can spend more time in school and less time collecting water” says one child who benefited from a Gift for Life. While a family in the developing world will receive the gift, your loved one will get a card and a buzz from knowing they’ve made a difference in someone’s life. Gifts range from $5 to $500. www.giftforlife.co.nz

Gratitude Journals

Unravelling the mystery of how to be happy may be as simple as unwrapping a gift, particularly if that gift happens to be a gratitude journal. These journals can help us focus on the positive things in life, and we’re ‘positive’ that your loved ones will be grateful for receiving this gorgeous gift. www.awesomeendsin.me
