Gifts that Give Twice

Gifts that Give Twice

Instead of traditional presents, our Gifts that Give Twice* are a collection of alternative gifts like a smile or play activities like playing football, doing arts and crafts or splashing about in our pool for the local terminally ill children we care for.

Christmas will be very different for everyone this year so if you are looking for an alternative, meaningful gift for family and friends, this could be just the thing you are looking for.

Sometimes it is really hard to think of original gift ideas, especially for that person who has everything. With our Gifts that Give Twice, your choice is easy. You can feel proud that you have not only put a smile on the faces of our children and their parents but also on the face of the person you are giving one of these precious gifts too.

Pick the gift you would like whilst supporting your local children’s hospice

If you click on the image of the gift you wish to purchase below it will take you to our online eBay shop, directly to the page for the gift.

When you buy one of our virtual gifts, you will receive a lovely card 126 mm x 126 mm with envelope which you can send by post to your family or friends. These are made in the UK and recyclable.

Thank you for supporting Helen & Douglas House. These gifts are truly priceless to our children so thank you.
