This is the time of year when you need a nice little gift for a hostess, or a teacher, or for someone a little tricky to shop for.  I’ve partnered with The Care and Share MCC Thrift Store and I’m excited to give you some ideas for some really meaningful gifts that you’ll feel great about giving and the receiver will love too.

Christmas Hostess Gift Ideas That Make A Difference

MCC has a whole gift catalogue with 25 different gift ideas to choose from starting at just $10.  They use donations to help people all over the world.  Here are four of my favourites along with some free printable gift tags and an idea of what you could add to really spruce up the gift.

1. For The Chocolate Lover

For a donation of $35 MCC will help a farmer to plant a crop of cocao trees.  A few years ago when my family was visiting the Caribbean we had a chance to tour a chocolate farm.  We got to see the cocao beans growing on the trees and exactly how they harvest and process them into chocolate.  It was amazing.  So when I saw this gift idea I got really excited about how this gift could impact the lives of farmers.

We put together this fun “I love you almost as much as I love chocolate” card which you can download for free here, and print at home.

To make this gift extra special we added in some freshly baked brownies in a pretty mason jar.  You can find our Easy One Bowl Brownie Recipe here.

Or if you’re not a baker how about including some chocolate baked goods from your favourite bakery, or just your very favourite Christmas chocolates.

3.  Baking and Cooking Lessons

We love to bake and cook.  For a donation of $15 you can partner with MCC and provide baking and cooking lessons to a woman in a developing country that can provide her family with an income.  Check out the video of a woman whose life was changed by learning to bake and cook.

Use our free “All you knead is loaf this Christmas” gift tag and attach it to a beautiful loaf of fresh baked bread.

We picked our bread up at the grocery store and tied it up with a pretty cotton gauze napkin.  This would make a really lovely gift for a hostess, teacher… well we think just about anyone would love it.
