Charity ChristmasChristmas Charity Gift Ideas

You all know the person that has everything and are probably struggling to know want to buy them for Christmas. Well, how about buying them a ‘giving back gift’? We’ve all heard about gifting a goat but many charities have now expanded this idea and you can buy everything from toys for vulnerable children to medical care and adopting animals to even twinning your rubbish bin.

Think about a cause or interest that the person has and try and link the gift.

Here are some of our favourites:

Be a Secret Santa for a vulnerable child.

Action for Children

Be a secret santa for a vulnerable child. Everything from toys and gifts to lunch for a week

Red Cross

Helping Ukraine, refugees or UK vulnerable people with food, animal feed and vaccines.


Adopt an animal gift


Box of supplies, medical care, education for children in 150 less developed countries


Supports communities in Africa with trees, seeds, and training

Bin Twinning

2 billion people don’t have their rubbish collected. In developing countries, one person dies every 30 seconds from diseases caused by plastic pollution and rubbish (Tearfund). You can twin your bin with a community-led social enterprise that is collecting household rubbish and selling recycled waste.

Twin your fridge

By twinning your fridge, you help provide emergency food and livelihood support to families across the world who are suffering extreme hunger due to conflict, severe drought and economic instability

Toilet Twinning

1.7 billion people don’t have somewhere safe to go to the toilet. Twinning your toilet helps to fund a project in a community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.
