This Year instead of buying the same old clichéd gifts for friends and family, you should get them something different and memorable all while supporting a worthwhile cause. How about a goat or an education for a child that needs it? This is possible with Oxfam’s new range of Unwrapped gifts, which is available and ready to be purchased at the Oxfam shops here in York.

What is Unwrapped? And how does it work? Well, Oxfam Unwrapped is a fun and alternative way of giving a gift that really makes a big difference to the lives of poor people and communities.  The range of gifts reflects the purpose of our work that aim to provide or improve the most important things in life like education, health and jobs. So when customers buy a gift they get a card to give to the recipient, explaining what their gift is and how it will be used in Oxfam’s work with the people who need it the most. It’s a great way to help out others in need while bringing a smile to a loved one’s face.

This year Unwrapped offers over 40 gifts, many of which are under £10, making them ideal for Secret Santa gifts of stocking fillers. The range of gifts available ensures you’ll find something for everyone. To learn more about Unwrapped gifts or to purchase them, stop by your local Oxfam shop. The shops on Petergate, Goodramgate, Micklegate and Acomb all have Unwrapped catalogues and gifts ready for purchase. You can also find catalogues being distributed throughout the city in the coming weeks. And remember – a small gift can make a big difference, so why not give one that can change a life?
