Top 6 | Best Charity Christmas Gifts for Children

While holidays are all about coming together and spending time with loved ones, we know you'll also be busy thinking about what gifts to buy.

Sometimes charity gifts for children might be seen as a bit tricky, with most children expecting to receive something tangible on the big day. This is why we've rounded up a few ideas that offer the best of both worlds, allowing you to teach the children around you about the power of kindness and looking out for others

1. Little people, big dreams, £9.99

From Rosa Parks to Greta Thunberg, these educational children's books will inspire the little ones in your life to dream big and reach for the stars. Beautifully illustrated and packed with facts and photos, each book tells the story of a different person who has achieved incredible things and that all started with a child with a dream.


2. LSW Mind Cards - Kids edition

A fun and easy way to introduce the power of mindfulness, gratitude and kindness to help a child to keep calm, understand their feelings and focus on the present.

With 30 individually designed cards presented in a beautiful, lidded box, we think this would make the perfect gift for little ones and new parents alike.

3. A New School Uniform for a refugee

A school uniform is something most children can relate to, but sadly many refugee children in the UK can't afford. Teach the children in your life about the power of helping others with the gift of a new school uniform or warm clothes for a refugee.

You can send this gift as an e-card or greetings card and choose from five different card designs. If you're still worried they might expect something tangible, then why not add on some fair-trade chocolate to your order at checkout...

4. 'Be Kind' - Tasselled embroidery banner kit

Because it doesn't hurt anyone to have a reminder to be kind hanging on their wall.

These colourful DIY banners would make the perfect gift, teaching the art of cross stitch to beginners or those wanting to brush up on their skills. Plus, when they're done, they'll look great hanging anywhere from kids’ bedrooms to kitchens to dining rooms.


 5. Reusable Children's colouring in mat

The perfect gift for a little artist. These colouring in mats are the perfect eco-friendly gift for little ones and great for when you're on the go.

Made from soft food-grade silicone, each mat also provides a hygienic surface for playing or eating. Comes with 4 dry-erase markers.

6. Fairtrade chocolate, from £1.10 - £6.50

 If none of the above catch your eye - it's a well-known fact, kids love chocolate.

And what's not to love about our selection of delicious and sustainably sourced chocolate from Divine? From giant chocolate coins to chocolate taster sets, whether you're looking for a gift, a stocking filler, or some tree decorations, we've got you covered.
