Ethical and alternative gifts may never be the same after Oxfam, and Christian Aid, launched schemes to send goats, chickens, donkeys, sheep, camels and assorted other livestock to Africa on behalf of loved ones as charity gifts.

These charity gifts make great presents for birthdays, weddings, valentines day as well as Christmas with over a hundred different charity gift ideas between them. (Click here to visit the Oxfam charity gifts collection or here for Christian Aid gifts).

It is very quick and easy to send your charity gifts. All you do is visit the web site, choose a charity gift online, and then choose a card with a personal message to send to your loved one on whose behalf the charity gift is being sent.

For those wanting to make more than the usual statement of love, there are some really unusual and alternative gift ideas that are proving particularly popular amongst those who want to make their gift really count.

Whether it be giving a toilet or a camel there are loads of ethical (as well as reasonably priced!) gift ideas to choose from.

The best unusual gifts and web sites, where charity presents and gifts can be ordered quickly and easily online, and delivered with a special message are as follows (click to visit the particular charity gifts website):

Charity gifts from Christian Aid
Charity gifts from Oxfam
Charity gifts from Practical Presents
Charity gifts from Send a Cow
