The shows must go on

Having recently attended Home & Gift, it feels wonderful getting to meet and greet everyone in person at the shows again. Although slightly more on the scene of late, COVID-19 is largely a thing of the past and it’s great to feel like everything is back to normal. I will be treading the aisles of Autumn Fair in September and have enjoyed putting together our preview of the event. Check out  page 55 to see what’s happening, and seeing the slew of amazing brands that will be exhibiting at the event. Autumn Fair isn’t the only show we’re focusing on this issue. We’re also throwing the spotlight on Top Drawer Autumn, Brand Licensing Europe, INDX and a post-show round-up of garden event GLEE.

Of course that’s not all, we are also focusing on our Christmas products part two, Toys & Games, Women’s Jewellery & Accessories, and Greeting Cards. That’s all topped off with our regular dose of industry news, new products and insightful business advice.

To dad, with love... what to stock for Father's Day

Father's Day is one of the prime gifting events throughout the year, with the product choices continuing to expand...

Forget the socks this Father's Day and instead send your love with a fabulous "Man Candle" or "Mandle". With over 40 fragrances in its range, Pintail Candles has a great range of masculine and gender-neutral scents and styling to suit every dad, daddy, father and pa. A popular choice for men is the Driftwood fragrance which comes in many different candle sizes to suit every pocket. This is an invigorating clean, fresh fragrance, combining notes of massoia wood, vetiver and oak moss intertwined with refreshing citrus hints of bergamot and lemon.
