Christmas Charity Shop Guide

As the old saying goes, when giving gifts, it’s the thought that counts. Giving generously at Christmas doesn’t have to mean splashing out on the latest tech, the most fashionable trainers, or the newest toys. As the costs of seemingly everything is rising, one of the simplest ways to cut back on spending around the festive season is to find wonderful gifts in charity shops and online charity retailers. For all your classic festive staples and uniquely generous gifts, why not try charity shopping online this Christmas?

Plan ahead

Just like Father Christmas, you’re probably making your list and checking it twice. Anybody who takes Christmas shopping seriously thinks about what they want to get their loved ones before they start purchasing, and this is even more important when it comes to Christmas charity shopping.

The first thing to do is to identify a key charity you would like to support. In the SPANA online shop, you will find a whole range of items available to purchase that make wonderful gifts for friends, parents, children, grandparents, significant others, or even for Secret Santa! With such a variety of gifts to purchase, you can support a worthy cause with full confidence that you’ll find something thoughtful to gift. Purchase through our shop and know that 100 per cent of the profits will go to helping working animals. Visit our online store and pick out items like candles, luxury chocolates, Christmas oven gloves, bookmarks, and more to put under your tree. Choosing a charity in advance makes Christmas shopping that little bit easier and more rewarding knowing the proceeds are going to a worthy cause.

 

Know what to look for

Online charity shops are havens for brand new items that are made ethically and with love to help people support worthy charities, especially at Christmas time! Some highlights that you’ll find in our online charity shop include…

  • Board games and puzzles: Puzzles and board games are a staple for family gatherings, especially at Christmas, and you can find excellent options in online charity shops. Whether you find pre-loved puzzles and board games in a second-hand charity outlet or brand new options like SPANA’s Hill Top Farm puzzle, you can enjoy puzzling and playing with charitable buys.
  • Kitchenware: You can find gorgeously designed crockery and kitchen textiles in charity’s online stores with unique designs you won’t find elsewhere. SPANA offers festive oven gloves and tea towels, as well as mugs and coasters in sets perfect for gifting.
  • Chocolates and sweets: A super easy way to support the charities that are close to your heart is to find your favourite sweet treats in their online stores! You can find a range of treats like vegan jellies, handmade chocolate squares, and gift-boxed truffles and chocolate assortments in the SPANA store.
  • Stationery: Notebooks, diaries, and calendars have been staple Christmas gifts for years, and there’s no reason why you can’t shop for these festive essentials from online charity retailers. For notecards that will make anyone smile, calendars to brighten up the New Year, or even adorable notebooks in a range of designs, online charity shopping can be the way to find the best gifts.
  • Toiletries: Give your loved ones a gift that will make them feel pampered, like luxury toiletries from online charity stores. SPANA’s shop is full of luscious bath products like lavender soap, bath salts, hand balm, and scented candles, for the perfect relaxing bath.

However you shop, and whatever you’re looking out for, there are plenty of ways to save some money, care for the planet, and donate to worthwhile charities. Do your Christmas shopping with online charity retailers – without ever having to compromise on quality and generosity.
