What are Must Have Gifts?

Must Have Gifts are extra-ordinary gifts that keep on giving. Buying a charity Christmas gift means you’ll be helping vulnerable children to experience fullness of life. Must Have Gifts provide the essentials so families and communities can empower children to survive and thrive.

DID YOU KNOW? Each of the unique gifts we offer are specifically requested by communities to help children reach their potential. When you buy a World Vision charity gift, your Christmas gift donation will be used where the need is greatest. This is why these are some of the best charity gifts in the UK.

We have a wide selection of gifts so you can find the perfect present for everyone on your Christmas list and order today. Whatever Christmas charity gift you choose, you know you’ll be helping children access life-saving essentials where it's needed most.

Sending a free printed card or e-card will let them know what ethical gift you’ve bought on their behalf. Every virtual gift you buy will be helping at least two people; your loved one, and a child, family or even a community overseas.

What's new?

This year, you can choose between a printed card or e-card. You’ll receive your printed card straight to your door for you to add a message and send on to your loved one. E-cards will be sent to your loved one’s email.

Choosing to go digital with an e-card has a big impact. We’re able to offer a more eco-friendly gift option, and it means your generous donations can reach more children and families living in the world’s toughest places.
