BuyBritain.com, the world’s largest online marketplace of exclusively British-made products, has curated a selection of stunning British-made Mother’s Day gift ideas supporting local makers around the UK.
Gifts include a Personalised Gin and Tonic knife, award-winning chocolates, jewellery from Rebecca Oxenham and Scottish pink gin. Perfect for showing love for your mum, while supporting some of the best makers in the UK.
In time for Mother’s Day, Buy Britain has curated some of the most exclusive, sustainable, products in Britain championing ‘local hero’ products with a ‘100% British badge’, where all materials and components are UK sourced offering sustainability and carbon benefits through good manufacturing processes and reduced shipping distances.
With Rishi Sunak backing buying British in 2021 and data revealing consumers are overwhelmingly more likely to ‘buy British’ post Brexit, there is increased demand for both makers to sell and consumers to buy products made in the UK.
Buy Britain aims to create jobs, keep British skills alive and make it easy for people to find and support local businesses selling quality British-made goods.
Bestsellers include HM The Queen’s glovemaker’s new technology anti-viral gloves ‘The Liz’, Clive’s Rhubarb sparkling wine, famous Covent Garden jeweller F&M De Santis, The British Honey Company’s Keepr’s British Raspberry & Honey Gin, Hettie's Throws and Webber’s British Furniture.
Michael Oszmann, BuyBritain.com founder says: “Our inspiration for launching the Mother’s Day collection was seeing the variety of amazing local skills and craftsmanship throughout the country. There has been increasing demand to buy British, with people finding it difficult to find British-made products. We’re absolutely delighted to now be working with some of the UK’s best makers who have become our partners and growing community. Now British customers can have the best of British goods in one place they can trust and feel really good about supporting local businesses and jobs. Seeing the struggles that local businesses have faced with global competitors, Brexit and Covid 19, we are doing our best to help that situation. We’ve seen immediate success, with the site gaining strong pre Mother’s Day and Easter sales.”
Buy Britain seller and jeweller Franco De Santis from F&M De Santis, had successfully traded from Covent Garden’s Jubilee Market for many years, until Covid 19 hit their business hard. He said: “Partnering with BuyBritain.com has been a lifesaver for our business. Like us, many small British businesses do not yet have an online shop or find it hard to promote themselves online. Buy Britain has offered us a free and easy solution as a brilliant additional sales and promotion channel”.
Longer term, there is an aim for Buy Britain to establish a foundation incubator to support local businesses and start-ups and give something back. As Buy Britain grows, the company also has ambition to promote brands to a global audience.
