Oxfam Christmas

This Christmas why not have your Christmas tree delivered to your doorstep and help support the amazing work of Oxfam… add in some beautiful baubles and a goat for uncle Tom and you’re set for a very Oxfam Christmas.

Last Christmas Tree orders need to be registered by SUNDAY 27 NOVEMBER, buy now.


Tis the season to be jolly… and Oxfam can help your cheer go even further.  Through their network of generous volunteers and suppliers, your beautiful Christmas tree can be delivered to your door for $89 (and approximately $50 of that goes to Oxfam who partner with communities here in Australia and around the world, to deliver simple, smart solutions to tough humanitarian problems).

The guys at Oxfam wanted me to tell you about their tree service (our tree is beautiful, I love a fresh tree and having it delivered to the door makes it super easy!).  As a bit of an afterthought they said they would send us some decorations to go with it… and I am so excited about the decorations as they are absolutely STUNNING.

Handcrafted and, in the case of the red bauble, hand painted (the result of a cross-cultural project between artist Paddy Japaljarri Stewart in Australia and artisans in Kashmir).  The wooden decorations, designed and made in Vietnam, made with (so also smell like) cinnamon bark… opening them filled the room with a very Christmas flavour!  And I’m a bit in love with the mother of pearl bauble.

These decorations are true keepsakes and would make beautiful gifts and mementoes in themselves.  I feel very blessed to receive such a beautiful gift from Oxfam and I know my children will treasure these decorations for the rest of their lives – just as they enjoy seeing the decorations from my childhood when we help my parents dress their tree… and mum and I reminisce about some of the stories behind different decorations!  As mum recently said, “Christmas is the time to be sentimental”.

Finally – if you’re stuck for a gift for someone who has everything… then Oxfam have a fabulous online shop plus their fun gifts you can give on behalf of others (pigs, goats, clean water, a veggie garden etc…).  What’s not to love about an ethical Christmas, https://www.oxfam.org.au/ethical-christmas/
