The Pre-loved Gift Exchange!

The Pre-loved Gift Exchange!

Sat 26 Nov

Find the perfect gift this Christmas, without breaking the bank, with Livat Hammersmith’s pre-loved gift exchange.

Saturday 26th November
10am - 5pm 

With Christmas around the corner, here at Livat Hammersmith, we are offering a helping hand to those looking for the perfect gift for loved ones - without breaking the bank!

With the cost of living crisis continuing to put pressure on families, 60% of Brits plan on spending less on Christmas this year. Yet, second-hand gifting has been rising in popularity for several years, with many choosing pre-loved gifts as a more environmentally sustainable option to buying new. 

Our pre-loved gift exchange will allow visitors to exchange second-hand items to make thoughtful gifts for others.  

Working in a similar way to our Sustainable Swap Shop that was held in the Summer, on Saturday 26th November, we are inviting visitors to bring up to six toys, games or non-perishable (non-food) items to exchange. 

And secondhand certainly doesn’t mean second-best, as a professional gift-wrapper will be on hand throughout the day to turn pre-loved items into a beautifully wrapped gift to open on Christmas day.

For those struggling for inspiration, blogger Becky Goddard-Hill, will be on hand to offer visitors a wealth of ideas on how to enjoy a magical and cost-effective Christmas this year. And in the true spirit of Christmas, any surplus gifts will be donated to the British Heart Foundation charity shop in Hammersmith.
