30 fun and unusual charity gift ideas

Whether it is something sporty for a super fit granddad, a new bike for the green member of the family or an unusual pet for the kids, Present Aid is sure to have the perfect gift.

What is Present Aid?

Present Aid has over 30 fun and unusual charity gift ideas that will be loved by everybody and also help poor communities around the world. If you buy a charity gift you are also helping to fund Christian Aid’s projects around the world.

Christian Aid is an international development charity working in over 50 countries to help people in the fight to end poverty and one of the world's largest Christian charities.

And, not only will it be their loved one who benefits, a Present Aid gift will also help to make a lasting difference to someone else’s life.

Six projects need funding:

  • Agriculture and livestock
  • Emergency and disaster preparedness
  • Healthcare including HIV/Aids
  • Power & energy
  • Training and education
  • Water and environment

How does it work?

For each charity gift that is ordered they send a gift card that is then given to a friend or family member. Each card describes how poverty charity Christian Aid helps people in the developing world improve their own lives, and has a space to include a personalised message.

Where does the money go?

The charity gifts on sale are virtual. This means that whatever present bought, the money will go directly to a project fund relevant to the gift. For instance, if you buy a goat, ducks or even composting worms, that money goes directly to their agricultural and livestock fund.
