|8 Out Of 10 Mums Say|
For working mum Ellie Davies, a 39 year old Mum-of-two, the hassle of buying Christmas presents for family and friends can be a stressful time.
With lots of friends overseas or kids already having everything they need the thought of buying more 'stuff' can seem unappealing.
Ellie is one mum who is doing something bit different with her Christmas gift buying. "I began buying Oxfam Unwrapped presents a few years ago and it captured my imagination as soon as I heard about it," says Ellie. "You can get presents quickly and send them anywhere easily. What I really like about it is that because we all tend to have everything they need already, it's hard to get something unique and really appreciated - but Oxfam Unwrapped allows you to match your presents to your friends and family, buying them something that is really valuable and thoughtful."
Ellie's daughter really loved a present from her Mum a couple of years ago. "She is so skinny, but eats like a horse and loves food," explains Ellie, "so she was thrilled when I bought her the 100 school meals gift. At school, she has become aware of how people live around the world and has started to question why she has so much when other people have nothing - so Oxfam Unwrapped presents help her feel good about giving something, not just receiving."
For her Grandma, who used to be a peace campaigner in the 60's - Ellie found the perfect Oxfam Unwrapped gifts; "I bought her a gift to help women start a business - which really reflected her personality."
Ellie has also found that Oxfam Unwrapped can have a lot of personal meaning. For a friend she met travelling in Africa, Ellie bought the 4 x 4 land rover gift as they have spent a lot of time on their trip digging their vehicles out of pot holes. For another friend who's a teacher, Ellie choose the teach a teacher present showing how the gifts can be matched to the recipients interests and personality.
For Ellie, this Christmas Oxfam Unwrapped gifts help her kids and friends think about what they need and what they want: "I think the more you give the better you feel so giving Oxfam Unwrapped helps you give twice really. There are so many people in need around the world that it makes you question what you actually want for Christmas this year."
"All my friends and family that have received Oxfam Unwrapped presents have really appreciated them - knowing that someone else is really benefitting," Ellie says. "I love choosing presents which have special meanings and memories for my nearest and dearest and seeing them work out the personal connection and why I choose that gift especially for them."

The average baby (Is there such a thing?!) can cry for up to two hours a day. Some babies cry more, a few cry less but remember that it's perfectly normal for babies to cry! It's one of the only ways a baby can communicate in the early days.
