Roses are red, violets are blue, but if you’re stuck for a thoughtful gift for your significant other, The Big Issue Shop has the just the thing for you.
Valentine’s Day is upon us and love it or hate it, now is the time to get that little something that will sum up your innermost romantic feelings perfectly. Or prepare to face the wrath of the one sitting across the candle-hit table on that intimate meal for two come the 14th.
Why limit yourself to just one though, when you can spread the love to good causes around the world with gifts from The Big Issue Shop?
Take Studio 306’s intricately designed jewellery, for example. The not-for-profit organisation know a thing or two about hearts – and heads. Not only do they design and hand-make heart-shaped pendants in their North London studio but they also offer a creative space for people recovering from mental illness in the process.
They’re not the only ones using jewellery for good, Quazi’s earrings and rings certainly love the Earth, recycling old magazines and turning them into jewellery while helping artisans in Swaziland with a living wage too.
