Presents with purpose: a festive gift guide

It’s that time of year when you’ll already have started to think about festive gifts – maybe you’re still at the list-making stage, or have you got most of your presents wrapped and ready? Whatever stage you’re at, we’re sure you’ll find something interesting in our festive gift guide with a difference.

All of the products or items listed below are from some of the amazing ventures that we have worked with on one of our venture support programmes.

They are all small ethical businesses that we are supporting, to help them grow and create greater impact – either through their products with purpose, or their effect on the local community. With a range of gift ideas for a variety of tastes and budgets, we’re sure you’ll find something for even the hardest-to-buy relative!
