The gift-giving season is rapidly approaching and it's sometimes a chore to figure out what to give certain people. I am big on giving meaningful or personal items. I feel like it's a small way to show that person just how much you care about them.
This holiday season , consider giving one of your friends and loved ones delicious, poverty-fighting holiday gifts from the 2014 World Vision Gift Catalog. More than 250 items, ranging in price from $10 to $39,000, are available online and in the print catalog to help improve quality of life for women, children and families in the U.S. and around the world. When you give where it is needed most, you can receive handcrafted gifts that are perfect for holiday baking or entertaining:

I have the Prosperity Cinnamon and it is divine! I am big on quality ingredients for baking and cooking. This cinnamon really is exceptional. I love the carved box. It will be gorgeous to use as kitchen decor.
I just received a HUGE bag of freshly picked apples from a family friend and decided it was a good time to try the cinnamon out.
I peeled and sliced up my apples and added sugar and the Prosperity cinnamon over the top.
I cooked them on the stove-top until they were to the texture I like. The cinnamon apples were so delicious and the cinnamon really was the key ingredient. I can't wait to do all of my holiday baking with this cinnamon.World Vision Facebook page and follow on Twitter at @WorldVisionNews using the hashtag #GiftCatalog.
