Gift Guide

We have compiled this gift guide to assist you in deciding what gift to purchase for a child.

This is just a guideline – please feel free to donate any gifts you feel are appropriate for the age/gender group on your tag!

Many of the children who will receive gifts through the Giving Tree live in families which struggle to afford Christmas dinner. In addition to the below suggestions, donations of vouchers which can be spent on food (such as vouchers for supermarkets) would be greatly appreciated.
