Black Friday: gifts that give back

Posted on: Wednesday, 24th November 2021 by Daisy Crook, Community & Events Fundraiser

What demonstrates Christmas spirit more than buying a product that also helps a cause that you care about? This Black Friday, if you’re shopping for the best deals for Christmas presents, why not also consider gifts that give back?

We’ve made it easy for you with our gift guide. All these fantastic small businesses make gifting simple and have the feel-good factor because they all support Jo’s too. And if you’re just in the mood to treat yourself to something nice we support that! Happy shopping! 




Our supporter Gill created Lovingabag in May 2020 while on furlough and enjoyed it so much she decided to take it full time! Gill is a big believer in women supporting each other and says when they do “incredible things can happen.” This is why she chose to support Jo’s through the sales of her Code Red Pouches. 

These pretty pouches are ideal for holding your period pads, panty liners or bladder control pads. They are also very useful for storing your face masks or reusable facial cleansing pads. £2 from the sale of each pouch is donated to Jo’s. 

All of Lovingabag’s products are made from high-quality fabric remnants. They were destined for landfill but Gill recycles them into these great pouches! Keep an eye out on Lovingabag’s Instagram too, as she also regularly runs raffles for Jo’s where you have a chance of winning one of her beautifully made bags!

Thistle Creations


The creator of Thistle Creations decided to use her small business to support Jo’s after using our services. After a difficult 4 years of cell changes diagnoses, colposcopies, and a postponed cervical screening due to Covid, being able to focus on Thistle Creations has helped her to cope with the anxiety she felt during these past 4 years. We’re really pleased that our support services were there for her too.

Thistle Creations creates reusable cups and keyrings to raise money for Jo’s. £4 from each reusable cup and £2 from each keyring is donated to Jo’s.

Emberhot is supporting Jo’s by giving customers the option to donate at checkout to Jo’s. Ember decided to support Jo’s as we are a cause close to her heart. After a recent smear test, she was told she had HPV and cell changes. She didn’t understand lots of the terms in the letter she received, words like colposcopy, biopsy and CIN, but she found answers and support at Jo’s.

Emberhot’s mission is to empower everyone to explore what they enjoy. As well as some great Black Friday deals to grab, use code JOSTRUST to get 10% off your order* and make sure to leave a donation to Jo’s at the checkout too! 

*offer available until 31st December, excludes Lelo and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
