Christmas With Oxfam

Christmas is the time to eat, drink and be merry, and this brand new exciting range of festive fayre from Oxfam is sure to tickle the tastebuds of all the foodies in the family. In this guide I will be showing off a fabulous range of gifts for you to have a sneak peak at which will make great gifts for special and loved ones whilst also supporting a great charity at the same time!

Available at selected Oxfam shops across the UK, the collection includes some spicy sensations with flavours from around the world, classic chocolate sets and delicious condiments. There is also a number of delectable hot drink sets available in colourful fair trade hand painted tins.

Oxfam is a global humanitarian, development and campaigning organisation working with others to overcome poverty. From life-saving emergency response to life-changing development projects and campaigning for lasting change, Oxfam works in 94 countries as part of the Oxfam International confederation to tackle poverty at its roots.

Oxfam has one million supporters in the UK. 

For every £1 donated, 84p is spent on emergency, development and campaigning work, 9p is spent on support and governance and 7p is invested to generate future income. Oxfam has nearly 700 high street shops across the UK selling donated fashion, books, music, homewares and new ethical products.  It is supported by a workforce of 22,000 volunteers. Oxfam also launched the UK's first online charity shop in 2007. 


Oxfam GB is affiliated to Oxfam International, a global confederation of 17 independent Oxfams which share the same purpose.

Fairtrade Hot Chocolate Spoons - £1.50 each.
Milk and dark chocolate spoons available.
Available at selected Oxfam stores nationwide.

Oxfam very kindly sent me two of these hot chocolate spoons to try out. My first impressions of these kind of spoons have always been mixed. I've always liked the idea and concept behind them but wasn't sure if I would like them as they look like pure chocolate on a stick, so mixing these with boiling hot kettle water just never appealed to me before! Having a quiet Saturday night in, me and Spud tried a hot chocolate spoon each, both myself and Spud loved the hot chocolate the spoons help to make (just mix with boiling water - add milk to cool for a child or leave the water until its warm).

The hot chocolate wasn't bland nor too rich, it was surprisingly just right no added sugar or sweeteners were needed so the taste aspect gets a thumbs up from me and Spud! For just a small price of £1.50 these hot chocolate spoons are a must have this Christmas! I have one to go in Spud's Christmas Eve hamper and another for his stocking! They would make great little top up gifts and would go great along with a nice mug for a hot drinks/hot chocolate lover this Christmas!
