Easter egg anyone? Sounds like madness straight after Christmas doesn’t it? But for our industry, that’s indeed where we’re at! If you turn to page 47 you’ll find plenty of inspiration for gift giving at Easter. Mother’s Day gifts, anniversary gifts and novelty items are all covered in this issue too, giving you plenty of ideas about what to stock shelves with for the year ahead.
Kitchenware and houseware gifts are very on-trend. As people reign in their nights out after the Christmas festivities, they’re definitely wanting to make their evenings in more of a treat. Whether that’s enjoying a fine wine through quality glassware or serving up a feast on some beautiful crockery. We have plenty of stunning items on page 33 for foodies and proud homeowners alike.
A large proportion of this edition is dedicated to our Spring Fair Preview. From page 79 onwards, you’ll find a comprehensive guide on who’s there, where to find them and even a nifty floorplan to help you plan your trip. Gift Focus will be attending, so please do stop for a chat. I’m looking forward to seeing faces old and new.
Enjoy show season!

Bella Middleton, the founder of Norfolk Natural Living, says: “last year, we spent a collective £710 million on Valentine's Day gifts in Britain. With nothing to suggest we won't spend even more this year; it's a fantastic opportunity for retailers to sell a whole manner of giftable items - not limited to cards.
“Our natural, lovingly hand-crafted skincare range; combined with our beautiful scented candles and room diffusers make thoughtful, long-lasting Valentine's gifts.”
Norfolk Natural Living's full range, including their Skincare collection as candles/diffusers are available at wholesale pricing in packs of six with no minimum order. Bella and her team can be contacted via firstname.lastname@example.org or the website https://www.norfolknaturalliving.com.
