  • When I buy a Practical Present, where does my money go? +

    Your Practical Present donation will be put to immediate use supporting our life-changing work around the world. Flexibility in how your donation is spent is vital and ensures it can be used quickly and effectively to support the people who most urgently need our help. Each gift belongs to one of three themed areas of work. When you buy a gift, your money will directly contribute to our work in Energy, Water and Sanitation or Food and Agriculture.
  • I’d like to buy a Practical Present for my friend/loved one, how does this work? +

    What a lovely idea! You can do this in two ways: 1) you can purchase the gift pack yourself which will be sent to the address you detail at the time of ordering. Once it arrives, write your personal message to your friend or loved one and give it to them on their special day OR 2) you can send an e-card! By detailing which inbox you’d like it to arrive in at the time of ordering, e.g. inputting your friend’s or loved one’s email address, your life-changing gift soon arrives from you to them.
  • Can I send an E-card? +

    Yes! Just select the e-card option when prompted during the checkout process, and complete the details. Please complete the required fields for each e-card you wish to purchase. If you want to purchase both e-cards and postal orders you will need to do these in separate transactions.
  • When will my E-card be delivered? +

    E-cards will be delivered immediately after purchase of your Practical Present. Unfortunately, it is not possible to delay the sending of an e-card or for it to be delivered on a specific time/date.
  • Where can I find out more about Practical Action? +

    On our website you can find information about our work and other ways to support us. For more details on Practical Action or anything to do with our work, you can call us on 01926 634 506.
