100 OCC Shoebox Ideas

OCC logo

Here at Faith Like a Child, we LOVE packing shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child. When we first got started many years ago, we sometimes found ourselves stumped of what items to pack for the precious boy and girls who would receive these gifts. However, over the years, we’ve come up with lots of ideas and here is our top 100 suggestions to include school supplies, hygiene items, clothing, toys, and items specifically for boys, girls and both genders.

Do you have any other suggestions? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Please comment below, or come join us on Facebook at Faith Like A Child to let us know your favorite items to pack.
