You want your presents to look extra special, thoughtful and classier than everyone else’s. We know this. So we have teamed up with celebrated street artists to bring you beautifully crafted, stunning, bespoke designer wrapping paper, exclusive to The Big Issue.
Each sheet you buy for just £1.50 is a hand up, not a hand out – all proceeds help supply new warmer uniforms for our vendors.
Groovy gift tags are also available.
The artists each shared their inspiration and reasons for taking part in this pioneering new Big Issue project.
John Dolan, who briefly sold The Big Issue, has drawn his dog George in a delightful festive scene. “It’s helping people who are at the lowest end of society who are holding their heads up high and trying to do something about it. God loves a trier,” he said.
Magnus Gjoen’s fabulous gothy skull tree ornaments are inspired by the story of The Little Match Girl. “The print I developed is a reflection of the celebration of Christmas and that we should also remember to help others as we are enjoying our festivities.”
