The Gift That Keeps on Giving: Why Online Charity Shop this Christmas?

Christmas shopping can be stressful and expensive – we all know the last-minute dash around a department store picking up gift sets, or that frantic click for next-day delivery on 23 or even 24 December. But there is another way! Why not try online charity shopping for your Christmas gifts this year for more sustainable and affordable presents that give back to a worthwhile charity? With so many charitable options including a range of online charity retailers, there’s really no reason not to do some charity Christmas shopping.

Shopping more sustainably

High street charity shops encourage people to reuse and recycle pre-loved items, but many online charity shops offer all this plus sustainable shopping options. In our SPANA shop you can find a variety of wonderful gifts including bath products, like bath bombs and soaps that are both vegan and Fairtrade. This kind of gift provides sustainable alternatives to your traditional bath gift sets that you’ll find in high street shops. By shopping with charities, you can gift more sustainably and know that you are donating to a worthy cause.

 

Additionally, you can find gifts in the SPANA shop that protect wildlife and encourage it to thrive in your very own garden! With recycled bird nesters, insect houses, and bird feeders, you can embody local sustainability by ensuring a strong, protective habitat for wildlife.

Supporting worthy causes

Not only can buying charity Christmas gifts be beneficial for the environment, but it also means you’re giving your money to organisations that use it to support worthy causes and help a whole variety of communities around the world! Making more informed decisions about where to do your Christmas shopping means thinking about where your money goes after you’ve paid for your presents. When you buy from online charity shops, like SPANA, all profits go towards activities that can help to protect animals, save lives, offer support to those in need, provide critical care to all kinds of people and communities and more.

 

Many charity organisations, including SPANA, have brand new items in their online shops that make wonderful gifts for Christmas, birthdays, and special celebrations. Supporting charities with your buying habits doesn’t always have to mean buying second-hand – check out SPANA’s online shop for brand new gifts and enjoy some charity Christmas shopping online.

Buying affordable gifts

In the modern world, it seems like everything is getting more expensive all the time. Shopping thoughtfully can mean finding places to get more ‘bang for your buck’, and charity shops can be little treasure troves for reasonably priced gifts. If you’re feeling the pinch this winter, charity shopping for your Christmas presents could mean there is a little bit left over for more of what you need. Keep an eye on online charity shops that are closest to your heart and find wonderful gifts ranging all the way from bath products to stuffed toys, and stationery to sweets!

 

To squeeze every penny of value from the gifts you’re buying, you can also buy from selected online retailers who donate to SPANA with every purchase. At no extra cost to you, you can feel good about giving back to SPANA while doing your Christmas shopping this year!
