Christmas charity gifts

As Black Friday descends upon us I thought it might be nice to put together a post on all the gift packages some of my favourite charities have on offer this Christmas. One of the easiest ways to donate to charity at Christmas is through Christmas cards, the charity shops on the high street often have some very affordable cute cards. But if you're feeling a bit more generous here are some ideas.

Adopt a snow leopard
With this adoption pack you get a cuddly toy snow leopard, a magazine three times a year and factfile with stickers. I think this would be a good gift for a primary school child, it has the perfect combination of a toy, a sense of ownership and responsibility along with the tools to learn more about the snow leopard. Who knows, you may inspire the next David Attenborough!

World Land Trust
Buy an acre of rainforest
This protects land in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Mexico. You purchase it as a gift and the person who you gift it to gets a certificate showing how much rainforest they have protected. Sorry to mention Attenborough again, but he is a patron of this charity!

Ebola emergency family protection kit
With this gift you only get a card sent to the person who you gifted it on behalf of, but with all these charity gifts, the gift to your friend or relative is more the donation rather than the physical gift.

Nurse a cat back to health
Again with this gift you just get a card, but it is a card with a cat on it! Any cat lover would definitely appreciate this gift and there are lots of other options for different animals on the RSPCA website too.

I have tried to cover different types of charities here but please do leave links below in the comments for any that you would like to see supported.



  1. Love your blog and the new design is fab! I nominated you for the Liebster Award, questions in the link :0)

    1. Thank you so much Janey! I've actually done the Liebster award four times now, think it might be enough now, but thank you and great to have support!

  2. Brilliant post! So refreshing to see among countless wishlists and gift guides of watches and hand bags. I did something similar last year and will be sharing this!

    Best wishes, Danielle xo

    1. Thank you Danielle! I particularly like the WWF one :) x
