Best of British

The annual Gift of the Year competition is a showcase of the best brands and innovative products on the market, and we’ve got all the winners and runner’s up in our comprehensive overview! Check out page 29 to see who’s won which category. While the winter nights may, thankfully, be drawing to a close, the lure of candles never go out of fashion and are perennial bestsellers all year round. To this end, I focus on some of the best home fragrance options on the market. Likewise, as Father’s Day is fast approaching, we throw the spotlight on what to stock for the men of the moment – from accessories to stationery, we’ve got it covered.

Focusing on another trend, Made in Britain products are increasingly sought-after commodities, and we cover the best the industry has to offer on page 55.

Don’t forget to check out the regulars, catching up on industry news, new products and business advice from the FSB and ACID. We also give further advice on nostalgia marketing and adopting a net zero strategy.

We hope it helps!
