Gifts that give back  | 5 best charity gift ideas

Give a unique, beautiful gift and make a difference at the same time with the help of these ethical charity gifts.

From hand-poured candles to organic tea and socks, our charity gift guide includes a range of conscious gifts and products that are driving positive change.

1. Candles designed by Refugees - Close to Home

Designed at a workshop with three young refugees who are supported by the British Red Cross, these three handmade soy-wax vegan candles would make the perfect ethical and vegan gift.

Shop Asiyo, Barbra and Yousif's three distinct scents, all inspired by happy memories from home. 

2. Buy a pair, give a pair - Charity Socks that support those currently homeless

Every purchase of a pair of these beautiful, certified organic cotton socks means one pair will be donated to C4WS Homeless Shelter.

Handmade in Portugal and available in a variety of colours and designs, they’re a perfect gift for chilly feet this winter.


3. British Red Cross Virtual Gifts, from £7 - £88.33

This range of cards helps some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. From helping to reunite a family torn apart by war or persecution to delivering a wheelchair to someone who can't afford one,  every purchase will have a huge impact on someone's life.

4. Baubles designed by Refugees

Designed by refugees at a workshop with Cotswold Baubles, these handmade and hand-dipped ceramic baubles are not only beautiful and unique but all profits go towards supporting our refugee services.

5. Organic, premium breakfast tea supporting Refugees - Nemi Tea x BRC 

We've partnered with Nemi Teas, a social enterprise that makes premium tea products that create opportunities for refugees to shape their own journey through employment and work experience. Like us, they believe everyone in the UK, regardless of who they are, should get the same chances.

This tea is organic and carefully sourced and all packaging is either 100% recyclable or compostable.
