Valentine’s Day is just around the corner… but did you exhaust all your best gift ideas at Christmas? 

ActionAid’s charity gifts are a unique way to show how much you care. From beehives to blankets, there’s something special for everyone in our collection (whatever floats your goat!)

And these are not your average chocolates and flowers, because these gifts will help fund our work changing the lives of women and girls in poverty.

That’s what we call a gift of love.

1. Ask them to bee yours with our beekeeping gifts (£35-£150)

 

From beehives to beekeeping training, our beekeeping gifts could help women farmers in Kenya kickstart a new career in beekeeping, providing them with an independent and sustainable source of income

What could be sweeter than telling your ‘honey’ how much you love them… or making sure you delete your Bumble app once and for all.

2. Send hogs and kisses with our adorable piglet gift (£26)

 

If you’re swining and dining a loved one this Valentine’s day, don’t be a boar! 

Our heartwarming piglet gift, £26, helps families in need to earn a sustainable income through farming, because high-quality pig manure supports the growth of healthy crops.

3. Say ‘I goat you babe’ with our goat gifts (£30-£60)

 

Show how ‘goatally’ in love you are with your partner by sending them our goat gift this Valentine’s day.
