Business of The Week – Love Your Nation

Fall In Love With ‘Love Your Nation’

From humble beginnings, with just a few Wirral based designs, to one of the fastest growing
bespoke gift and homeware design businesses in the UK, busy working Mum of 3 Rebecca
Jackson has been a very busy bee since launching Love Your Nation eight years ago.

A talented graphic designer and illustrator, Rebecca channelled her love of all things design-
led into creating her first Wirral collection ‘Somewhere Only We Know’.

Originally from the North East, Rebecca met her husband Chris at University and they
eventually settled back on his home turf in wonderful Wirral.

After pitching her ideas to a handful of local Wirral businesses, who all loved the designs,
she then took the plunge adding a number of major cities and of course her beloved
Northumberland to her growing range.

Eight years, many cities and numerous individually designed collections and over 550 locations
later and Rebecca has seen her business flourish.

Still based in Upton and still largely from home with a small team of lovely local ladies, Rebecca says she has a lot to thank the
Wirral for.

‘I guess the beauty of Wirral was what first inspired me. I had thought of going down a
stationery route initially but the idea of playing on local names, such as the ‘Sshh – Oxton,
It’s Our Secret really got my creative juices flowing and so Love Your Nation was born.’

‘I initially started just doing a few local markets and had a handful of Wirral stockists.

Everyone was so supportive and eventually in 2018 we took a couple of collections to the
Home & Gift show in Harrogate and the rest is history.’

If you love ‘Love Your Nation’ every bit as much as we do, you can purchase the Wirral
collection locally in Gordale, Gifts for me & You, Le Bizz and Port Sunlight Garden Centre or view the full UK collection online at www.loveyournation.co.uk – don’t forget Independent Wirral members have an exclusive discount code!
