Christmas Gift Guide

This holiday season, we’re celebrating change that lasts. Every day, we hear stories of lasting change as people like you step forward to create communities of love and welcome in the U.S., and as churches across the globe step up to serve vulnerable people around them.

We know you care about refugees, immigrants and vulnerable people, and we know you want your gifts to friends and family to be special. That’s why this Christmas, we’ve created a fun, tangible way for you to serve people in need while also giving your friends and family a meaningful gift they’ll love: our Christmas Gift Guide.

Each product and/or company in this guide supports refugees and other immigrants in vulnerable situations through advocacy, employing refugees or donating a portion of their proceeds to World Relief.

From books to candles, and everything in between, there’s sure to be something for everyone on your list. Create change that lasts this Christmas by shopping our gift guide today!
