    We will aim to process and dispatch your order in time for Royal Mail's recommended last posting date for UK standard second-class delivery. However, we cannot guarantee delivery of your parcel before Christmas.

    Please note that some items can only be delivered to UK addresses, including cards, calendars & diaries and Oxfam Unwrapped orders that contain little extras.

    Missed the last post? Our Oxfam Unwrapped e-cards make the perfect last minute gift. Choose from 30 life-changing charity gifts and select the e-card option during the personalisation stage at checkout. E-cards can be sent instantly or scheduled to be sent to the recipient on any day you choose.

  • What are your delivery charges?

    Oxfam offers a standard UK delivery charge of £3.95 on all orders containing second-hand (donated) or Sourced by Oxfam items sent by Royal Mail, with the exception of high-value or bulky items, which incur a mandatory courier charge.

    If a courier charge applies to any item in the online shop, this will be clearly shown on the product page and in your basket.

    We offer optional free delivery on Oxfam Unwrapped gifts. Customers are given the opportunity to make a voluntary delivery contribution for items eligible for free delivery during the checkout process.

    Second-hand items (unless indicated otherwise) and Oxfam Unwrapped items (excluding little extras) can be delivered internationally, but please be aware that additional charges may apply. Sourced by Oxfam items cannot be delivered internationally.

  • Why do you ask me to make a voluntary delivery contribution on Oxfam Unwrapped items?

    We suggest an optional delivery contribution to help Oxfam cover some of our postage costs, so that more of the money from your purchase can be spent directly on our work fighting poverty. Also, making it voluntary means that if you choose to make a contribution, we will be able to claim the Gift Aid on it, if you sign up to the Gift Aid scheme.

    You can pay the suggested amount (normally £1.90), increase or decrease your contribution, or pay nothing at all - it's entirely up to you.

  • Can you deliver my order overseas?

    All Oxfam Unwrapped items (excluding little extras) can be sent overseas, but please be aware that free delivery does not apply. There may be an Oxfam Unwrapped in the country you wish to send your gift to - in which case it will be quicker and cheaper for you to order from their site.

    Second-hand items can also be sent overseas, unless otherwise indicated on the product page. A mandatory delivery cost will be added to your order at the checkout.

    Sourced by Oxfam items cannot be sent overseas.

  • When will my order arrive?

    You should receive all purchases to UK delivery addresses within seven working days (Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holidays) of placing your order. Please allow up to 21 working days for deliveries to non-UK (international) addresses.

    Please note that if you have ordered more than one item, they may not all arrive together. This is because Oxfam Unwrapped, Sourced by Oxfam and second-hand items are dispatched from different places. Second-hand items are also usually dispatched by the shop where they were donated and listed on the online shop, so second-hand items may also be coming from varying locations.

    We process all Oxfam Unwrapped gift card orders within 1 working day, and you should receive your gift card order within 5 working days. If you purchase an e-card, you can choose to send the e-card instantly or on a specific date of your choice.

    Second hand (donated) items are sent by second class post within three working days of receipt. Please do contact us if you have any questions about your items being dispatched.

    We aim to despatch all goods - whether by Royal Mail or by courier - within three working days of receiving the order. Please do contact us if you have any problems.

  • Can I delay my order so a gift arrives at the right time?

    We don't currently offer the facility to delay the dispatch of orders. However, if you are purchasing Oxfam Unwrapped gifts, you have the option of choosing from a selection of opening instructions on the customisation page (for example," Don't open until your birthday!") and we'll print this on the envelope. Another option is to have gifts sent to your home address so you can forward them on just in time for the special occasion. If you choose to send an e-card, you can include a personal message and choose the date you'd like your e-card to arrive.
