From gadgets galore to recycled birdhouses -online and in-store, Oxfam has all you need for Christmas 2022

Oxfam Ireland have officially relaunched their online tech and gadgets shop in time for Christmas 2022, calling on savvy shoppers to do something different this festive season by giving gifts that support both people and planet.

The online shop boasts brand new donated tech products at unbelievable prices with big discounts across the range. Each gift makes a lasting impact by raising vital funds for Oxfam’s global work to beat poverty. 

And customers won’t just find gifts that do good online. In Oxfam’s shops across the island of Ireland, the Sourced by Oxfam range contains an abundance of festive food, gifts and eco-products that are made with care, protect the planet, and help the women and men who produce them to earn a decent living – providing them with a way to lift themselves out of poverty.

Present ideas in this year’s gift range include gifts for cats, dogs and bird lovers:

  • Recycled Paper Birdhouse Ball €17.00 / £14.00: The iconic birdhouse ball, made by Fair Trade company Prokritee in Bangladesh is a great gift for bird lovers wishing to provide a stylish residence for their feathered friends. Handmade from recycled newspapers and magazines, making each one unique. It features a hanging loop and a varnished exterior to help keep its new residents dry and cosy.
  • Cats & A Dog Puzzle €20.00 / £17.00: A jigsaw with a twist: no two shapes are the same, and each piece is a cat (except for one that's a dog). Hours of maddening fun! Charming illustrations by Léa Maupetit, a French illustrator living and working in Paris.

Michael McIlwaine, Oxfam Ireland’s Head of Retail, said: “This Christmas, we’re asking people to really spread goodwill by shopping more sustainably with us in person at one of our 46 shops across the island of Ireland or on our online shop.

“An Oxfam gift has many recipients – those who directly receive the gift and those whom the gift supports, from small business owners and farmers in Malawi and Uganda to communities in crisis in places like Yemen.”

In Yemen, almost three quarters of the population are in need of humanitarian assistance with over 17 million facing hunger. Families already on the brink of famine now face a deadly winter freeze. By shopping with Oxfam Ireland this Christmas, people are making a real difference for people most in need in Yemen and beyond.

“We have gifts in every price range from tasty little stocking fillers to some amazing value in high tech gadgetry at our online tech shop. For example, a Sony Handycam now €952, when the recommended retail price is €1588,” McIlwaine continued.

Finally, Oxfam also offer their Unwrapped alternative gift card range. With Unwrapped, you are guaranteed to find the perfect card – be it for a winter birthday or wedding, or a quick hello or season’s greetings - in support of a cause you or your recipient care about, such as climate change or access to education. People can add a personal message to their gift card either online (e-card) or by hand (Oxfam post you out your Unwrapped card). 

McIlwaine concluded: “Last year, thanks to the generous support of people across the island of Ireland, we reached 12.2 million people across 12 countries. Why not help continue that life-changing work by shopping with Oxfam this Christmas? Even for one of your gifts this year. Whether that’s your workplace Kris Kringle or family stocking fillers, Oxfam’s shops online and in-store as well as our Unwrapped gift card range have you covered.”
