Popular gifts this year include the selection from the Oxfam Unwrapped program. The increase in purchases for these gifts has doubled since commencing in 2005.

The most popular gift last year was the chicken and this year the chicken will support Oxfam’s work with women in Laos to help them learn how to rear poultry to earn a living.

Generation Y are increasingly purchasing these gifts and last year, the quirkiest gift purchased by the 15-29 year olds was cattle manure, which helped people in Sri Lanka to use it as a fertilizer to increase their crops.

Other gifts available include the Goat for $39. One goat can quickly turn into a herd, which can be sold or bred, not to mention the milk and manure they produce which assists families to live. Pigs cost $35 and Oxfam trains people how to care for and raise piglets, which can be sold at markets, again providing income.   The popular chicken, costs $10.
