As hotly anticipated a festive tradition as mince pies, sherry and Santa popping down the chimney, The Big Issue’s exclusive, designer wrapping paper is back for 2019 – and it’s going to sell out fast!

Artists Ben Eine, Charming Baker, Pure Evil, Magnus Gjoen, Joe Webb, Eelus, Louise McNaughtDan Hillier and Neishaa Gharat have created highly collectable designs for us this year, and as ever the distinctive paper and tags will be available only through The Big Issue Shop.

This unique collection, created in collaboration with Jealous Gallery and Art Republic, features works by nine artists. There are 250 signed, limited-edition single-image sheets of each artist’s design, priced at £39 each, while a pack of five sheets of regular wrapping paper costs £7.99. Wrapping your gifts in these designs will ensure your paper steals the show from what’s inside.

Russell Blackman, MD of The Big Issue, said: “This will be the fourth year running that The Big Issue has worked with top artists on this wonderful designer wrapping paper. Last year, we saw the collection sell swiftly over the festive build-up, raising thousands of pounds for The Big Issue in support of its mission to dismantle poverty. Now, we’re delighted to unveil this year’s unique collection – we know you’ll love it.”

He added: “By buying your wrapping paper from us for a loved one this Christmas you are directly helping to better the lives of people who exist in conditions that desperately need improving.”
