Authentic marketing

While March saw the onslaught of corporate campaigning around International Women’s Day, June is Pride month in the UK, and needless to say the same marketing wheels will be put in motion to capitalise on yet another very important advocacy day. But has the meaning of these events been lost as they become yet a money maker on the retail calendar? I delve into this subject further in my blog on page 34 of Attire Accessories, where I also delve into how you can be a genuine and authentic ally.

Of course, it’s not just the special days that get the tills ringing. There are perennial bestselling giftware items that any savvy retailer has in their arsenal. Baby gifts top the lot when it comes to an industry sector that will always yield results – even a global pandemic can’t halt the onslaught of new births! – while eco-friendly offerings continue to please the ever growing environmentally aware consumer. We cover the best products in these categories on page 43 and 24 respectively.

If these don’t fit the angle of your store, there’s also kitchenware, bath & body, tabletop and new products. This issue we also shine the spotlight on the amazing industry events PG Live, Exclusively Housewares, and Home & Gift. Don’t forget to head to the back of the magazine where our sister title Attire Accessories has an array of jewellery inspiration.

Denby is launching 'Brew' Drinkware Pieces in two of Denby's best-selling collections to elevate tea and coffee moments beyond the ordinary.

Handcrafted in Derbyshire by Denby's ceramic experts, the new Brew Drinkware pieces are launching in the calming palette of Kiln and the granite and quartz texture of Studio Grey.

Gary Hawley, Senior Designer at Denby says, “We know the importance of a good hot drink. The ritual of sitting down together and enjoying conversation over your tea or coffee first inspired the Denby Brew collection. From the outset we wanted a collection that remained aesthetically beautiful but also delivered the best possible tea and coffee experience.”

Brand Protection

Brand protection is a critical aspect of maintaining the integrityand value of a company's identity in today's digital age. Onesignificant challenge companies face is online theft, particularlyin the realm of design. Whether it's copying product designs,logo infringement, or plagiarism of creative content, such actsnot only erode a brand's unique identity but also undermine itsmarket position and revenue.To combat online theft from an anti-copying in designperspective, companies must adopt proactive measures. Firstly,registering trademarks and designs and designs is fundamental.These legal protections provide a solid foundation for pursuinglegal action against infringers. Additionally, watermarkingimages and incorporating hidden identifiers into digital contentcan deter unauthorised use and help track down perpetrators.ACID members can use the IP Databank, ideal for uploadingdesigns, plans, and copyright works. It facilitates cost effectdocument management and can be used in all sorts of situationsadding to the audit trail as vital evidence of a design's evolutionand the incremental stages.

Gift With Glass

Hannah Walker from Sienna Glass tells Gift Focus Editor Louise Prance about the artisan crafted products and the company's expansion into home ornaments, tableware, and aromatherapy products. We started 10 years ago after searching for a glass product for another project. Through this research we discovered a whole world of stunning glass products, fell in love with them and the rest, as they say, is history. Whilst taking a break from full time work to care for my elderly parents I was able to start a mail order business selling glass giftware. With lots of ideas for new products bouncing around in my head, I eventually found a manufacturer who could turn my ideas into a reality. With the help of my daughter Hanna, who was just finishing her business degree at university, Sienna Glass Ltd wholesale was born.
