Charity Oxfam have brought out a new and bigger range of charity gifts this Christmas, following the success of last year's animal gifts.

Part of the scheme to send virtual gifts to Africa and the developing world on someone else's behalf, you can do it all through the Oxfam website, quickly and easily online.

You just visit the site, choose the gift you want to give, and then tell Oxfam on whose behalf you want the gift to be given. A card is then sent to the family member or friends on whose behalf you have given the gift, with your personal message. The gift is sent on to Africa or the developing world.
