Future focus

And so a new year begins! Welcome to the fi rst issue of 2023 – I’m already excited about the year ahead and all the wonderful collaborations, features, industry news, new products, company insights, and business advice to come. And let’s not forget the shows. January sees the annual Spring Fair event, which is set to bigger and better than ever before – with 14 sectors within four destinations across 8 halls, they all offer thousands of much loved and established favourites alongside an array of sustainable and new brands showing for the fi rst time. Of course the show aligns with Moda, which is also showcasing a curated offering of fashion brands. We have a comprehensive preview of both events – check it out and see what’s on offer!

This issue we’re focusing on companies Earth Squared, Molly Mae and Brainstorm. Interested in how they’ve established successful businesses and remained steadfast amidst many recessions, pandemic and cost of living crises? Check out their insightful stories.And of course, that’s not all.

There are retail gifting opportunities aplenty coming up, so to this end we’re focusing on Mother’s Day and Easter gifts, as well as kitchenware and anniversary gifts. Read on and indulge before getting prepared for a lucrative year ahead!

This issue we are looking ahead to the future, and while it may be unstable ground for a little while yet, there are good times ahead, and good times that consumers want to celebrate. One sure-fire celebration to get the tills ringing is Valentine’s Day – check out our round-up of the day of love on page 49. We also cover Handmade and Fairtrade gifts, as well as budget buys under £10.

Of course, we shine the spotlight on the up and coming trade shows, this issue looking at Top Drawer Spring, Scotland’s Trade Fair Spring, Giving & Living, and Harrogate Christmas & Gift.

We’ve loved bringing you all the latest and greatest giftware products and news over the last 12 months, and can’t wait to continue doing so in the new year.
