Gone are the days of picking up a trusty toaster or microwave for the newlyweds. Nowadays when it comes to gifts for the your big day, people are opting for a more personalised approach. MerseyMade, located on Paradise Street in Liverpool, is a haven for gifts to treasure for a lifetime. It houses 10 open artists’ studios alongside a retail space, selling locally made and sourced goods, all from within a 50-mile radius of the city. With everything from prints to jewellery, bespoke artwork to greetings cards and crafts, you can even see the artists themselves working as you browse.
This forward-thinking approach to consumerism supports local designers, makers, artists and business, so you can feel like you’re giving something back to community as you make your gift list selections, or shop for some extra special big-day touches. Perhaps you have a favourite local landmark you’d like captured on canvas; or if you’re into gin, you might like something special from a local distiller to gift as wedding favours. Whatever takes your fancy MerseyMade has something to suit.
