Alternative charity gifts for Christmas

It’s that time of year again - a time to be with family and friends, exchange gifts and eat lots of food! Christmas is also a charitable season and giving your loved ones a charity gift means you can both feel good about making a difference.

Our shop offers a huge variety of gifts with something for everyone this Christmas. If you're one of those shoppers that leaves everything until the last minute, we have gifts for that too! Our virtual options can be sent to you to personalise before giving, or by email direct to your chosen recipient. Crucially, they all provide vital funds to help create, restore and protect native UK woodland.

Grow a tree house

This is a great gift for nature lovers. There are four packages to choose from, ranging from 4 to 20 trees to support the work of the Woodland Trust. Native trees are so important for wildlife - a single oak tree, for example, can be the home for up to 500 species.

Price: 4 trees - £10; 6 trees - £15; 8 trees - £20; 20 trees - £50.

This gift comes with a certificate for you to personalise, a gift card to add a message, and an envelope.

It’s a bug’s life

Trees are so important for bugs and insects! They provide both shelter and food, and some live on only one species of tree. This gift will help the us to create, restore and protect native UK woodland, providing vital habitat for bugs and insects

Price: £16.50. With this gift you will receive a certificate to personalise, a gift card to add a message, and an envelope.  

A breath of fresh air

The donation from this gift will plant 25 square metres of new woodland, which will have the potential to lock up one tonne of carbon dioxide and will help combat global warming. This gift will be perfect for any environment enthusiasts out there.

Price: £25. With this gift you will receive a certificate to personalise, a gift card to add a message, and an envelope.  

The hedge fund

Hedges are important for native wildlife as they act as a link between habitats and as shelter. This gift will help plant more so wildlife can thrive.

Price: £30. With this gift you will receive a certificate to personalise, a gift card to add a message, and an envelope.  

Keep bluebells blooming

This gift will help to protect half an acre of woodland so that we can enjoy an abundance of bluebells every spring. This is a perfect way to give back to the woodlands and all that live in them.

Price: £33. With this gift you will receive a certificate to personalise, a gift card to add a message, and an envelope.

2018 calendars

Our wonderful selection of calendars for next year make perfect gifts for friends and loved ones that like to stay organised (or need a little encouragement!). There are three to choose from: our trees and woodland calendar and woodland wildlife calendar feature some amazing photography from around the UK, while our Nature Detectives family planner is filled with fun activity ideas, stickers and space for up to five family members to record their whereabouts and memorable dates.

Price: now just £5 each!

Tree dedication

Dedicating a tree this Christmas will be a special gift to remember and will make a real difference for wildlife.

You can choose from a selection of woods across the UK, all with their own unique characteristics. To say thanks we will send a dedication pack either in the post or straight away by email, so it’s perfect for last minute shoppers!

Suggested donation: £15.
