Spread the love with ethical wedding gifts

Please no more towels or toasters!  Ever looked at a wedding gift list and wished there was something more interesting to buy the happy couple? 

Look no further than the new Wedding Gift List from Present Aid www.presentaid.org and give the gift of a better life for thousands of people in developing countries.

As more and more couples co-habit before getting married the need for those ‘first home’ basics is becoming a thing of the past.  Increasingly modern couples are turning to ethical gifts as an alternative to the traditional department store wedding gift list.

With gifts from as little as £6 a Present Aid Wedding Gift List has something to suit everyone’s budget and will make a lasting difference to the world’s poorest communities.

Gifts range from a reading manual for a women’s literacy project in Sudan (£6) to a community tap which will provide clean, safe drinking water to hundreds of villagers in Nicaragua (£45). 

Eco-warriors can buy 2,000 saplings to be planted in Honduras which help stop soil erosion, prevent deadly mudslides during tropical storms and protect the environment (£35), while animal lovers can opt for 16 cute ducks for a family in Bangladesh, the eggs not only provide vital income but improve the family diet (£24).

Chris Russell, head of interactive marketing, Christian Aid said:  ‘There is an increasing trend for more socially conscious weddings and more and more couples are keen to give guests the chance to buy them an ethical gift.  The Wedding Gift list from Present Aid allows friends and family to buy something special which will benefit poor communities in the developing world for years to come.’

Setting up a Wedding Gift List is easy and can be used in conjunction with a traditional gift list.  Simply visit www.presentaid.org and select the gifts you wish to add to your list, then email the link to your guests and spread the happiness on your big day.
