Father's Day: Find fantastic social gifts at The Big Issue Shop

From beautiful neckties that help African children to marvellous mugs that support an epilepsy charity, The Big Issue shop has plenty of social gifts for Father's Day

We love our dads, so why not share the love this Father’s Day and treat them to a social gift from The Big Issue Shop.

The Big Issue Shop makes ethical and social shopping a truly accessible option for consumers, giving them the opportunity to use their spending power to make a positive difference to the world they live in.

Every product on the site has a ‘social echo’ to it, and we have put together a special collection for this year’s Father’s Day.

This includes neckties from Reddendi, which are sustainably handmade in the UK from the highest quality silk. Every necktie purchased will help to educate an underprivileged child for a year in Africa, India, Peru or Syria.

Or perhaps you might like to buy a beautifully designed bag, wallet or MacBook case from Elvis & Kresse, which are all made from decommissioned firehoses that would have ended up as landfill. Fifty per cent of profits from the range go to The Fire Fighters Charity.

Nothing says Father’s Day more than socks! Jollie Goods is a “more-than-profit” enterprise passionate about creating fun and tangible opportunities to support local homeless charities and care for those facing homelessness. They’ve started with socks. Wear a pair, share a pair! For every pair of Jollies Socks bought, a pair of hardy hiking socks are donated to a homeless charity in your local area.

ARTHOUSE Meath produce high quality artwork and products, created by men and women living with complex epilepsy, or learning and physical difficulties. Over 70 artists work alongside instructors who enable groups or individuals to create artworks which are developed into designer products for sale. The organisation also aims to create a platform of positive change in attitude towards people who are often marginalised, and all sales revenue goes towards sustaining the enterprise, helping it to grow and evolve.

There are many other Father’s Day products available at The Big Issue Shop, like stainless steel reusable water bottles that support a clean water initiative in Ghana, and the Big Issue collection of customisable sweatshirts, T-shirts and mugs. These give you an opportunity to shout about – and wear – the things that matter to you.

So treat your Dad this Father’s Day with a social gift from The Big Issue Shop!
