5 Unusual Christmas Giving Ideas

We are at that time of year where people are hunting for Christmas ideas. The retailers are sure to remind us to find the perfect gift – and to be quick about it.

But here’s a few Christmas giving gift ideas:

  1. Random Giving – Give every family member $100 at Thanksgiving. Have them give that $100 to someone in need (ideally someone they don’t know). Need ideas? Click here for ideas on how to give away $100.
  2. The Gift of Insight – Take your family members on a tour of local ministries. Give them a perspective on what’s going on in your city – from a rescue mission, to youth ministry, or to a nursing home. Need ideas? Call Connie Hougland at 913-310-0279, and she can help you find a great local ministry to visit.
  3. The Gift of Impact – Gather your family and talk about an opportunity to give together towards a single cause. It might be as simple as sponsoring kids or mission trips or as profound as sponsoring the completion of a bible translation.
  4. The Gift of Giving – Set up a donor advised fund for your children and put some initial seed money for them to give. Call 913-310-0279 for help with that.
  5. The Direct Give – Help another person or family in need. Maybe there is a friend or neighbor going through a difficult season with medical bills or other financial needs. You can actually make a direct gift anonymously. Call 913-310-0279 for help with that.

There’s no better gift than the gift of giving!
