Last-minute buy social gift ideas.

Love it or hate it, we can all feel the pressure to buy that special someone the perfect gift for Valentine's Day.

If you're stuck for ideas and need to make a last-minute buy, make a real statement and buy social - your gesture will go much further than just warming the cockles of your loved one's heart.

Below is a small selection of social enterprise gifts on offer.  



 

DIVINE CHOCOLATE 

Pick up some of these heart shaped fair trade chocolates from Divine Chocolate, a social enterprise that is 45% owned by cocoa farmers. When you buy their delicious chocolate, farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and get a slice of the profits to invest in to their communities.
