The Gifts That Keep on Giving: 4 Alternative Ideas in Spending
This year, don't simply give something that'll end up in the junk drawer. Instead, try one of these original gifts that keep on giving for months or even years.
1. Save an endangered species
You could adopt a tiger or save the polar bear for someone you love. Each adoption gets a personalised certificate, a poster and often a little gift bag. There are many endangered species out there that need our help. This this kind donation as a Christmas gift will show your loved ones just how much your care. Find out more here.
2. Plant a dedicated tree
A gift that keeps on growing. Plant one or more trees and a certificate will be sent with your own message in a gift pack. By planting trees, you can help to restore the ancient Caledonian Forest in the Scottish Highlands. Your trees will transform bare hillsides into healthy young woodland, rich in wildlife and protected for future generations. Find out more here.
3. Save Britain’s Bees
Our bees are dying out fast and a huge reason for this is the loss of their natural habitat. They've lost 97% of their grassland habitats in the past 60 years. But disaster can be averted. Donate a bee saving pack for someone you love this Christmas and they will receive everything we need to fight for our buzzy little friends. Find out more here.
4. Buy an acre of rainforest
Rainforests are one of the most important natural resources left on Earth. They safely store billions of tons of carbon, helping ward off climate change. They are also home to thousands of unique animals that depend on the protection of rainforest for their survival. You can buy an acre that will be protected and dedicate it to the recipient.
