“As always, it was amazing to see so many products grouped together representing all corners of the giftware industry,” commented Sarah Ward, ceo of The Giftware Association. “It was also good to see many smaller companies among the well-known names.”

Continued Sarah: “With Gift of the Year continuing to go from success to success, with more entries and variation than ever this year, we will be continuing to grow the competition as well as looking at our new consumer competition.”
