What are Little Extras?
Yes, Oxfam Unwrapped gifts are tremendous presents all on their own. But at Christmas, it’s nice to be even more generous with our loved ones. Thus, the new Little Extras collection was born — a gift range that will make someone you know feel extra special — and help even more people living in poverty.
All of the Little Extra gifts are produced by Oxfam fair trade partners or a talented artist. Your gift can help people lift themselves out of poverty.
Important note: Little Extras are only available for purchase once you have a blank or personalised card in your shopping cart. Chocolate Little Extras can only be sold with blank card orders.
