For the socially conscious friend, look no further for gift ideas than the Oxfam Shop. This not-for-profit organisation opened its first shop back in 1965, with the aim of providing sustainable income for artisans living in developing countries all over the world. The colourful Bourke Street Mall store is a treasure chest of one-off products, including Peruvian alpaca-blend throw blankets, African-print cushion covers and wooden carved chests. For friends who don’t need material possessions weighing them down, take a gander at Oxfam’s range of charity cards, where proceeds go to specific things that communities need, including chickens, goats, seeds and safe refuge for women.
