Social Gifting is a non-profit Social Enterprise, supported by North West Community Development Council. Founded and spearheaded by undergraduates from Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS), Social Gifting was born out of a common need to make our community a better place. Our work aims to create a community where crafting can bring people together, enable social impact and enrich communities.
Through crafting, we help differently-abled crafters find strength, enabling them to be a giver instead of a mere beneficiary, distract them from their illness, relieve stress and help them earn passive income.
These exquisite gifts at Social Gifting are crafted or packed by differently-abled crafters who are not ready for employment due to physical constraints or caregiving duties.
Your gift will make a difference in the lives of those who struggle to overcome the obstacles they face. These people are fighting their battles in autism, cancer, mental illness, motherhood and seniors who are at risk of isolation.
Shop something at Social Gifting for your loved one and a little extra goes to someone in need, or volunteer with us to spread that joy a little further by teaching them a new skill.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I live in Ireland and my sister lives in Singapore. I accidently came across Social Gifting and thought the items were beautiful. I picked a few practical pieces to send to my sister. Social Gifting were so helpful with arranging it to be gift wrapped and sent on the day of her birthday. It made everything feel more personal. She was delighted with the items. I will definitely be back at Christmas! Keep up the amazing crafting!

Thank you so much for putting your heart & soul into making these gifts of love. Thank you for so willingly taking out the button eyes of the dinosaur & sewing thread eyes, as it was a gift for a baby. I believe my grandnephew likes the dino cos he immediately put it into his mouth. Haha.
