What do you give the person who has everything?
How about a goat? Or a chicken? Or a pig? Or a pile of seeds? Oxfam Unwrapped offers a range of more than 40 totally unexpected gift ideas that will also help transform the life of a person living in poverty.
When you buy an Unwrapped gift card, your donation helps support Oxfam Australia's life-changing work around the world. Best of all, your family member, workmate or friend receives an extremely memorable gift card explaining how their special gift is helping others. It's a way that those of us with a lot can help those with a little.

You've bought your card, now you just need to personalise it. Oxfam can have the card delivered to you. Or, if you order online, simply type out a message to be printed inside, then Oxfam will send it directly to your recipient. Every card also includes an explanation about the role your specific gift plays in fighting poverty, so your recipient will know just how good a cause it is.
And you're done
Not only have you found the perfect gift for the person who has lots, but you've also found the perfect way to help those with little. Now that's a life-changing gift.
I'm thinking of buying a goat. Does Australia Post have restrictions on how you can send it?
Oh you! We don't actually ship Goats or any animals overseas, but all Oxfam Unwrapped gifts are real items that we use to fight poverty. Most gifts in the catalogue are already located in the country where we are working, so they're not impacting on our global footprint either!
When you purchase an Oxfam Unwrapped gift card, your tax-deductible donation will fund a range of projects that your gift represents. For example, when you buy gifts such as a Goat, a couple of Goats, a Goat family, Farmer education, a farmer's pack, Food basket, Fruit trees, Seeds, Two Ducks, a pig and a Goat or a Veggie garden, you'll be contributing to our agriculture projects.
Or, if you purchase an Aboriginal health card, Aboriginal women's circle, an Aeroplane, Aussie Rules footy, Breakfast for a child, Clean water, a Cooking stove, Midwife essentials, Orphan care, Safe refuge for women, Water for a school or a Well, you will be funding our health projects.
To support our education projects, you just need to purchase the gift of a Straight Talk card, Guitar Lessons, Notepads and pens, Literacy classes or Toys.
When you buy a rice bank, Calf, Cattle manure, Chicken, Chicken family , Duck, Fishing ponds, Piglet, start a small business or Three little pigs, you're helping fund programs that give people a livelihood.
Or you can help Oxfam act quickly in times of emergency by buying an Emergency hygiene kit, a Mossie net, a Canoe, a water-testing kit, a Donkey or a Solar light. You can also support our campaigning by purchasing Fairtrade Education, Save a river or our GROW card.
