The Christmas Gifts That Give Back

Giving at Christmas time always feels good, that’s why we’ve devoted an entire holiday to it. Many of us are taking this one step further and becoming more mindful with our merriment. Whether it’s our own principles or we’re buying for someone we know, there are calls for ever more conscious gifts.

Give as you Live Online knows the importance of giving back and offers Christmas shoppers a free way to generate donations for the charity of your choice when you shop online at over 5,500 stores.

With retail partners including John Lewis & Partners, Boots, Argos, M&S, Moonpig, and Etsy all offering donations to your charity, whether you’re buying your Christmas groceries, presents, or planning a festive break, you can be donating to your charity of choice at no cost to you, turning your ordinary Christmas shopping into extraordinary donations for a charity close to your heart.

So, we’ve put together a list of some of the gifts available via Give as you Live Online that will be loved by whomever you are buying for, and will also provide vital resources, funding, and help to those in need. That’s what Christmas is really all about:

Oxfam Unwrapped Gift Cards, from £5

Oxfam's Online Shop

This charity gift card gets more children into school. A decent education can change everything. Many of the world’s poorest children miss out. This is even more likely if you’re a girl. Your gift can help reset the balance, by helping us pressure governments to invest in girls’ education. This gift supports Oxfam’s Investing in the Future (IN) projects.

Alpargatas start from £36.00 (including a vegan range).


In 2006, TOMS founder Blake Mycoskie pioneered the One for One® model. Since then, their community has had a positive impact on over 100,000,000 lives.

Today, TOMS commits 1/3 of its profits for grassroots good, supporting people building equity at the local level, and driving progress from the ground up.

That’s why TOMS shoes are really something special—especially the classic Alpargata, which is often thought of as the shoe that started it all.

Tote Bag, Elvis & Kresse, from £210

Elvis & Kresse

A multi-award-winning sustainable luxury brand based in Kent.

Established in 2005, it is driven by a passion to solve environmental waste problems starting with saving London’s decommissioned firehose from landfill.

Elvis & Kresse creates luxury lifestyle accessories by transforming seemingly useless wastes and combining them with highly-skilled, traditional craftsmanship.

Elvis & Kresse donates 50% of profits to projects and charities related to the unique materials the team reclaims.

Four Hour Forest Bathing for One £39.00


The Buyagift team has a dedicated page for sustainable gifts and experiences including stays in Hobbit Huts, Terrarium Workshops, Sky Wire at The Eden Project and Forest Bathing.
