10 reasons for giving British made gifts this Christmas:
Helping preserve the future of British manufacturing and craftsmanship
You know where what you are buying is coming from
You are preserving and creating jobs for British workers
You are bestowing a gift that does not have a massive carbon footprint
It gives you the chance to buy something of quality that will last
You are encouraging others to buy British
You are helping people to realise that we do still make many wonderful things in the UK
You are being patriotic
British factories have ethical hygienic production, fair wages & decent working conditions
You are helping ensure future security of supply.
Please be careful to check the provenance of your gifts; there’s a tendency amongst many firms to claim British heritage in a way that misleadingly implies manufacture in the UK. Anything manufactured Britain, for example any of the items listed on this website, will make a good present and UK made gifts don’t have to be expensive either. Try the high street but I think you’ll have more luck finding British made Christmas presents online.
In response to this question I saw on trip advisor – where is the “Best place for affordable souvenirs made in England”?
Wherever you travel in the world, please make the effort to buy locally made souvenirs and support local people. At the very least make sure you buy a gift that is actually made in the country you are visiting.
Art prints and canvas, pillows, cups and saucers, dinnerware, chairs, holdalls, eye masks, mini bags – all made in England.
