Pass the Parcel with Oxfam Unwrapped This Christmas

With only seven weeks ‘til Christmas, let Oxfam Unwrapped replace your gift-giving dilemmas with life-changing gifts great for family and friends, while you spend more time enjoying the great Kiwi summer.

Here’s how it works: choose a gift from Oxfam Unwrapped, order online, by phone or mail, receive one of our quirky gift cards and your gift goes to communities in the developing world where it is needed most.

“Oxfam Unwrapped is a great way for New Zealanders to feel connected to the donations they give,” said Oxfam Unwrapped’s Julia Nicholson. “Through Oxfam Unwrapped gifts, generous kiwis have enabled impoverished communities to access clean water, plant nutritional gardens, access better education and medical services though giving. Every gift has an impact on people living in poverty, it supports them to work their way towards a better future and each gift represents a real tool used by Oxfam staff to overcome the injustice of poverty.”

Oxfam Unwrapped has a fun and fresh new look this year with new cards, a new website and a quirky television animation And with brand new gifts from a flat white for the ethical coffee aficionado in your life, to phone credit for a human rights defender, Oxfam Unwrapped has something for everyone, including old favourites like goats, organic bananas and piles of poo for the cheeky ones.

Over the past seven years, Oxfam Unwrapped has raised over $4.3 million from generous Kiwis to help communities in the Pacific, Southeast Asia and beyond, work their way out of poverty, through improved access to safe drinking water, the means to earn an income, grow enough food, and live in safety.

With nearly 50 gifts to choose from, starting at just $5, there’s no more need to give a forgettable gift – or spend time stuck inside the mall. Giving and receiving gifts has never been so much fun. Why not pass the parcel of a life-changing gift this Christmas?

Oxfam Unwrapped gifts can be purchased at or by calling toll-free 0800 400 666.
