How to get on the "nice" list...

Christmas shopping can be time-consuming, difficult and stressful, but there are so many ways that you can do good whilst spreading joy this festive season - all from your own armchair! Any gift that you buy through us will fund the planting of more trees in our woodlands, and is guaranteed to get you in Santa's good books ahead of the big day.

There's something for everyone, so browse our options below:

(Don’t) Send a Christmas card

Sending traditional greeting cards costs time, money, and can produce a lot of harmful waste that can impact our environment. Through DontSendMeACard.com you can send an e-card from your family - or business - and donate the cost to help the Forest.



Forest homes for our wildlife

By sponsoring a habitat you're helping us create and care for homes for our Forest wildlife. Our ponds and lakes, reedbeds, woodlands, hedgerows and grasslands are all home to a wide range of animal and plant species and you can help care for them. At £10 this is the ideal gift for any nature lover young or old, and they get to learn more about our Forest life!


Dedicate a tree

Trees make life better for all of us – for people, for wildlife, for the planet. Give the gift that keeps on growing and giving, not just to the recipient but to all of us. Your tree dedication will help us as a charity to care for the trees we’ve already planted, and help us to plant more trees and create new Community Woodlands within the Forest. From £20. 


Become a Friend of the Forest

What about a gift for yourself that also gives back to the environment? As a Friend of the Forest you'll be making the biggest difference to our local area, supporting and protecting our Community Forests. Not only would you be helping us to plant 5 million more trees, but as a thank you for your donation you can enjoy a whole host of benefits for you and your family.

A Friend's membership also makes a really thoughtful gift to a loved one and can be enjoyed by them all year round.


Give as you shop - for free!

If you prefer to do your shopping online, you can still support the Forest whilst shopping at many high street retailers online through Give As You Live, and it doesn't cost you a penny!
