Buy just one small gift made in Britain and together we could add one billion pounds to the UK economy!
This week we launched our ‘Buy British Christmas’ campaign, encouraging everyone to buy at least one small gift made in Britain this year.
You can see above the live video that we posted on Facebook to announce it.
We want you to just stop and think for a moment about supporting some of our great British makers this Christmas.
There are 52 million gift-buying adults living in the United Kingdom.
If every one of those individuals bought just one £20 gift made in Britain this Christmas it would add over £1 BILLION to the UK economy. That’s something worth thinking about!
If everyone in GB bought just one £20 gift made in Britain this Xmas it’d add £1bn to UK economy #buybritishchristmas @makeitbritish
And if you buy those British-made gifts directly from the makers then that is more pounds going directly into the pockets of UK manufacturers.
To make it easy for you to find British-made Christmas gifts we have added a Make it British Gift Guide to this website.
There really is something for everyone in this year’s gift selection, and we have made it easy for you by breaking the guide down into helpful categories like Luxury Gifts, Stocking Fillers, Pampered Pets and Practical Presents.
Not only will the guide help you get all your shopping done quickly and without the stress, it will also help you to Buy British and support our fabulous brands!
We’re also running a campaign across social media using the hashtag #buybritishchristmas
Just do a search for that tag on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and lots of fantastic British-made gift ideas should pop up – and if you make in Britain then please use the tag when sharing tweets of photos of any gift items that you make here.
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get #buybritishchristmas trending on Black Friday?
Black Friday is on 25th November this year and it’s the day when people traditionally start to really think about their present buying…and we want buying British to be at the forefront of their minds!
