Responsible giving: gifts with a difference at Christmas

If you're stuck in a present-buying rut, we have a few ideas that will bring joy, rather than clutter, this Christmas.


Send a Cow

Set up in 1988, Send a Cow works with African families to give them the means to create a sustainable future from their land. The charity tackles barriers to social development such as gender inequality and negative stereotyping through education, to help those marginalised to thrive.

Send a Cow offer a great variety of presents for those looking to do something more with their gifts this year; from donations to support families in Africa, which can go towards buying tools, seeds and even educational programs for schools and cooking classes. They also have great keep-cups and camping mugs. Whether it's a donation or a physical item, you know this present does some good.



On an average two-week tour of 16 people, between 800-1,000 plastic bottles will be used and thrown away! Our partners at Water-to-Go offer our customers an exclusive discount of 15% on their incredible refillable, filtration bottles which remove over 99.9% of contaminants, including dirt, bacteria, viruses and chemicals. With Water-to-Go, you can get fresh clean water to drink from ANY non-salt water source. It's the ideal present for any environmentally-conscious traveller - each filter is worth around 200 bottles of water!

Toilet Twinning

Raising funds to flush away poverty, this fantastic charity works to give people in poor communities access to clean water, a decent toilet and education on hygiene: a crucial combination for combating the spread of disease, reducing the number of deaths among children and giving hope for the future.

Toilet Twinning enables you to 'twin' a toilet in your home or place of work with a basic facility in a poor community. A toilet twinning donation makes a fantastic Christmas or house-warming present with a difference - they send you a framed certificate to hang in the loo and you could even buy a gift box with toilet roll!


Cool Earth

Cool Earth is a charity focused on saving the world's rainforests by supporting indigenous communities across the world in rainforest nations; through community engagement, education and empowerment.

Donating to Cool Earth means making a real difference to the lives affected by deforestation and helping to protect the communities, rainforests and animals that live there; allowing the trees to lock in the CO2 and helping to fight the effects of climate change.


Explore Gift Voucher

Give the gift of travel this Christmas, and the memories will live on well beyond the other gifts under the tree. Usable on any Explore trip, vouchers are available in denominations from just £10 up to £250, so you can give as much or as little as you like to contribute towards their next adventure - whether to Austria or the Arctic.
