Help make sure no one misses out
on presents (love) this Christmas!


Free Christmas store Open at Ocean Shores shops, Northern NSW. 20 minutes north of Byron Bay. 16–24 December.

Everything new! Everything free! Everyone welcome!

Take home free Xmas presents for yourself or your loved ones. Everything is new: clothing, household goods, electronics, toys, all given away for FREE.  Be part of the Spirit of giving at Christmas!

If you can help Dennis, or donate presents, they need to be new, as people need to wrap and give them as new gifts. Everyone is welcome as love isn’t conditional. Let’s make sure that no one goes without in Christmas 2020. We don’t use money in the shop, just love. Dennis says, “In any suburban block, we have enough new, unused things in our homes to fill a Christmas shop. Why not have a local collection? ”

Dennis Stevenson’s giveaway spirit took off in 2008 when he opened his leased house in Hamilton, Brisbane and gave everything away. He says, “That was the best day of my life.” Next, in the week before Christmas 2009 he borrowed an empty Gold Coast shop, called it Spirit of Christmas and gave away thousands of new presents.

Dennis says, "Giving isn't just the fastest way to change ourselves and our world. It's the only way!"

Dennis’ website gives hundreds of ideas on living for free and how helping each other changes all our lives.

From the site’s Testimonials page:

“Thank you for your generous heart. It has made our Christmas so much easier. We are extremely grateful.”

“Thank you so much. I have been able to grab some gifts for my family for Christmas which I really would not be able to afford. I have been finding it quite tuff this year in particular, so I really appreciate all your effort and commitment. I have been a single parent for the past 11 years and it really warms my heat to see people like you guys helping others in need. Love, Louise, Caleb and Jacinta.”

“Thank you for your generosity, love and compassion for those less fortunate.”

Dennis asks, “Can you think of a better way to have a Merry Christmas?”
