Our best buys for Remembrance Day 2019

Posted 1st Nov 2019

Everything you need to show your support on Remembrance Sunday…


2019 marks several milestones in history. Not only is it 101 years since the end of the First World War, it's also the 75th Anniversary of the D-Day landings.

Earlier in the year, on the anniversary of the D-Day landings, the country commemorated the operation's efforts with a special series of BBC documentaries and concerts, and in just 11 days it will be time to pay our respects to those that have fallen. 

Many of us like to show our support for Remembrance Day by sporting a poppy badge and giving a donation to the Royal British Legion. However, if you'd like something a bit different from the normal paper poppy, we've got a list of great buys for you!

From metal poppy brooches to poppy print dresses and even dog beds, take a look at our picks of the best poppy products on sale for Remembrance Day 2019.


1. Remembrance 2019 Poppy Crystal Silver Brooch, £19.99, The Poppy Shop

Plus, unlike paper poppy badges this one won't fall off or crumple up!


2. 2 Poppy cookie cutters with press insert, £3.99, Lakeland


Paper poppy sales are just one aspect of the Royal British Legion's fundraising for the armed forces. Another great way to raise money for this charity is to get baking!

4. Flowers of the Commonwealth apron, £19.99, The Poppy Shop


If you're going to bake some delicious treats to raise money, you're going to need a stylish apron to do it in!

This blue and pastel-coloured apron from The Poppy Shop features flowers from some of the 53 Commonwealth countries – just like Megan Markle's wedding veil!
