Last chance for Gift of the Year entries

Spring Fair and the Giftware Association have joined forces to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Gift of the Year Awards in style.

Judged by a panel of leading editors across the trade press, including Jennifer Creevy of Retail Week, Elias Jahshan of Retail Gazette, Sue Marks of Progressive Gifts & Home, Rachel Westall of Gift Focus, the retailer categories of the Awards allow you and your team to gain recognition for the hard work and results you have achieved.


The retailer categories that celebrate the best in buying are:

1. Department Store Buyer / Team
An innovative buying campaign that has demonstrated diversification into a new category to increase revenue.

2. Independent Retailer Buyer / Team
This category winner is a team or individual responsible for using a new product selection to allow their small shop to diversify into a new product area.

3. Multiple Retailer Buyer / Team
Enter this category if you have led your store in a new direction by selecting a product range based on market trends and sector analysis.

4. Online Retailer Buyer / Team
Our worthy winning team or individual here will be responsible for diversification of product range within a purely online retail offering – the business does not have a bricks and mortar retail outlet.

The deadline for entries is Monday 15th January.
