Most years I buy Oxfam's Christmas cards, but now there are several other things what could be interesting even for people who aren't into ethnic stuff - e.g.:
* Loose Leaf English Breakfast Tea, 100g for $5
Twinings version sells for $5.59 / 100g at Woolies, so this is a great deal for an organic, fairtrade product.
* Rings Around Photo Frame for $5 (was $22.95)
This iron and MDF frame does look stylish and could be part of any home - the price beats the most basic frames at IKEA, and can't think of any place including Big W and Officeworks where you can find photoframes that cheap.
* Blue Gingham Bread Basket for $10
This hand woven basket is made from seagrass and features a removable blue gingham cotton lining. The cheapest proofing baskets I could find were roughly $20 through Fishpond, as they seem to be pretty expensive at kitchen stores.
+ Plenty of other stuff in the sale category.
Besides scoring a bargain you'll also help communities in need around the world.
