48 charity Christmas gifts to help you give something back this December

2020 has been a year like no other, to say the least. The coronavirus pandemic has had an impact on every single area of our day-to-day lives, and as we go through a second period of lockdown and head towards the festive season, it’s set to affect our Christmas shopping habits too.

In a recent survey conducted by Music Magpie, 58 per cent said that they will try to be sustainable this Christmas, with 39 per cent adding that they would only buy things which will help the planet, such as donations to charity. But if you want to give a physical gift and still make a difference with your purchase, these charity Christmas gifts are a great place to start.

No matter what cause you’re hoping to support – from the NHS to Mind, The Trussell Trust to Black Lives Matter – there are so many genuinely lovely presents out there this year that will donate a percentage (or in some cases, all) of their proceeds to the vital work of organisations around the world.

Below are just some of the best charity Christmas gifts for 2020 we’ve spotted so far – not only will you have the joy of discovering something brilliant that your recipient will love, you can bask in the added glow of the fact that your money is going to those who need it most.
