At Oxfam Ireland we suggest starting your shopping at one of our 46 shops to really spread the Christmas joy and find unique gifts. Each purchase makes a lasting impact by raising vital funds for Oxfam’s global work supporting those who have least.

Many of us overspend during the festive season and we end up buying things for others that they don’t need or want. This means more waste and needless spending. We suggest making more conscious choices this Christmas.

Our Christmas gift range of stocking-fillers, cards and more is designed to be easy on the pocket and the planet. Many of our gifts help the women and men who produce them to earn a decent living – providing them with a way to lift themselves out of poverty.
