From the editor

Positive vibes

As I write my Editor’s Letter the eternal winter continues and the rain is pelting down – the beautiful one day of spring the UK enjoyed a distant memory! Not only does the bad weather dampen spirits – I for one feel like hibernating until the wet retreats – it can hit retail sales as consumers forego in-person shopping trips for online, thus highlighting how important it is to have a complementary e-tail offering for your store or boutique.

However, there is always hope, and if last summer was anything to go by, when it does finally arrive, we can reap the rewards of shoppers who are desperate to dust off their summer shoes and paint the town red and get those tills ringing!

Looking forward, this issue we showcase the great and the good of the Gift industry and announce the winners of the Gift of the Year competition! Get your order books at the ready!

We also have a veritable treat of features to whet your buying appetite, and this issue will be focusing on eco-friendly products, and the perennial bestselling category of baby gifts. In addition we look at the best bath & body products, as well as tabletop items.

If that wasn’t enough, we have a preview of Exclusively Housewares and PG Live. As always, please shout if there’s anything you’d like to see in the magazine, we love to hear from our readers.

And don’t forget to flip this magazine to get your fashion accessories fix in our sister magazine Attire Accessories!

Pet Appeal - Wag&Wool saw a gap in the market

Starting in the height of the Pandemic, Wag&Wool creates matching pet and human accessories – a growing trend in the UK. March 2020, the pandemic gave us all a chance for pause and introspection. For me, it was an opportunity to put the vitality of the high fashion industry on hold and concentrate on a project closer to my heart. Having shared my life with dogs since I can remember, I wanted to begin designing a beautiful range of gift-worthy knitwear for dogs. The lightbulb moment came to me when I met my friend and her dog, Monti, on a particularly chilly day in Brighton. We wrapped Monti up in one of my hand-knitted lambswool scarves to keep him cosy and I never looked back. Wag&Wool was born.
