Why not support a good cause this Christmas and shop in Milngavie’s Oxfam store. It’s packed with perfect presents to suit all ages, tastes and budgets including fairtrade goodies.

Christmas is the season of smiles and buying a gift from Oxfam to give to family and friends is a wonderful way to spread smiles across the world.

You could pamper loved ones with natural and fair trade beauty gifts, or tickle taste buds with the delicious range of festive foods.

How about filling a fair trade hamper with a unique selection of gifts, like yummy organic Divine chocolate and dates from Palestine, fair trade coffee, biscuits and dried fruit? Or choosing an embroidered purse, hot water bottle cover, and glasses case (all under £10) handmade in gorgeous Monsoon fabric? The items were stitched by women’s cooperatives in India, where vulnerable women have been lifted out of poverty with skilled paid work.

Alternatively, forget the need to wrap presents entirely with an Oxfam Unwrapped gift card. These unique personalised cards buy life-changing essentials for people in living in poverty. There are 40 gifts to choose from, including Teach a Teacher, Safe Water for 50 people, Care for Mums and Babies, and the famous Oxfam Goat.

Lynne McLean, Oxfam Shop Manager at Milngavie, said: “We know people in Milngavie are looking for inspiration for special Christmas gifts to make their friends and family smile. Oxfam is crammed with great ideas from affordable stocking fillers and quirky craft gifts to retro games and chocolate goats – there’s something for everyone. What’s more, shopping at Oxfam spreads smiles further around the world because all the money raised improves the lives of people struggling with poverty and suffering across the globe. It’s a wonderful and worthwhile way to give at this special time of year.”

Oxfam has around 650 high street shops nationwide, stocked with a great range of gift ideas, from unique donated treasures such as special books, jewellery and homewares, to responsibly sourced items including food and drink, gifts, games and decorations. Many products support small-scale farmers or social enterprises and use sustainable materials to help reduce the environmental impact.
