Practical Present christmas ideas – have you thought of a goat?

Christmas is a time when our thoughts often turn to family and friends and if, like me, you are struggling to think what to buy, why not give the gift that transforms lives?  A Practical Present from Practical Action.

Practical Presents is the fantastic alternative gift scheme, which will make a friend or love one smile and help to transform the lives of some of the world’s poorest people at the same time.goat present

We all know someone on our shopping list that is impossible to buy for, because they have everything already – why not give them something different this year and buy a Practical Present?  From the best-selling ‘Gorgeous Goat’ where your gift of £20 will help projects such as those in Sudan and Bangladesh where a goat can be a lifesaver, providing enough milk to keep the whole family healthy.  To the ‘Fireless cooker’, which for £8 helps reduce deadly smoke inhalation caused by traditional cooking methods.

The scheme is really simply to use:

  • log onto www.practicalpresents.org and browse the fabulous gifts that are on offer – starting at just £8 there is something for everyone
  • choose whether you want your gift to be sent:
    • directly to you
    • direct to recipient
    • by e-card
  • complete the relevant information through checkout
  • leave the rest to us

You’ve purchased a thoughtful and unusal gift for friends and family and at the same time helped support Practical Action’s long term projects in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Make life a little easier this Christmas and visit Practical Presents.  If you would like to know more or have any questions please do get in touch.
