Christmas is only five sleeps away. Eeeeeee. Are you ready for everything? Have you got all your decorations in place? Do you have your menu planned and your Christmas Eve grocery list written out? Did you remember to get the Bon Bon’s and the Christmas serviettes? And importantly – have you checked out my 2018 Fit Girl Gift Guide and finished your gift shopping???
I love Christmas. It’s one of my favourite times of year. I love taking time out, coming together with family over a meal and sharing gifts and a drink or two. But when I look at the list of things I plan and prepare for Christmas Day it can be a little overwhelming. What I find even more overwhelming is when I stop and think about all the things I am preparing when there are so many in the world today who have so little to look forward to on Christmas Day.
Poverty can seem like such a huge, unsolvable problem that we simply blindside the issue (espeically at Christmas time when it puts our privileged situation in harsh perspective). But I really want to take a moment to encourage you that each and every move you make to help those in need makes such an impact to the lives of those who receive your gifts.
So, in light of Christmas, the spirit of generosity, filling those last minute gift lists and with the encouragement of Proverbs 11:25 which says “A generous person will prosper, whoever refreshes others will be refreshed”, I’ve collated my annual list of five gifts you can add to your gift list. These items are in line with what we care about here at Eat Pray Workout, improving the health and nutrition, but there are so many more options to choose from! Have a look at the full range on the World Vision Website.
