Gifts to celebrate St Georges Day

Did you know that traditional customs on St Georges Day were to fly the St George’s flag and wear a red rose in one’s lapel.

As it’s St Georges Day we thought we’d celebrate a few things that make England great!

We’re the tea loving, cheese eating, queue-waiting country, that’s bursting with history, so we’ve chosen some fun products from Give as you Live retailers that showcase this.

Admittedly some of the products do feature the Union Jack- which combines aspects of three national flags: the red cross of Saint George, the red saltire of Saint Patrick’s Flag, and the Flag of Scotland.
