Alternative Christmas Guide – Oxfam Unwrapped

As we are now in November (just) , we can officially say that it is Christmas next month.  The shops are already filling their shelves with christmas gifts, and I am busy working on my ultimate christmas gift guide to try and help you with choosing that perfect gift.

Alongside my gift guide, I will also be promoting various gifts along the way, and today I am going to start christmas off with alternative christmas gifts.
Oxfam unwrapped, have some great gift suggestions, for that gift that could also change and help lives, and with prices ranging from £5 – £50 there is a budget or everyone.

I have highlighted a few suggestions from their list

  • A Pile of Poo – for £9 this gift gives families the means to provide for themselves, by growing fresh vegetables. They will receive the ideal mixture of manure, organic fertiliser and training so that families becomre self-reliant. By growing crops which will feed them regular meals, and enable them to sell and improve their lifestyle.
  • Care for Mums and Babies – for £16 this gift will give maternal health to help mums and babies with healthcare, help provide the means for safe access to water for births and hygiene and give training to new mothers and their communities
  • A Goat – for £25 this give can provide milk for a family to both drink and to sell, and also the added extra of business training so that the family get the best price for what they produce.  The goat will also help with crops growth.

This is just a few ideas of the great options available from
If like me you get stuck on certain people you have to buy for, I hope this post has given you a few ideas for an alternative present.
