With one day to go until the Gift Of The Year 2021 closes on Friday December 11, organisers The Giftware Association are urging suppliers to get last minute entries in without delay.
“This year’s competition has been about searching for the next best products for the judges, as well as giving as much exposure to the entrants in a year that’s been tough on our industry,” says the GA’s Chris Workman.
“We have launched a brand new podcast, new categories, a brand new website and have even more judges than we have ever had before from a range of retailers, buyers and key industry experts,” Chris continues. The judges are featured on our awards website along with blogs from the entrants and podcasts from previous winners who share their stories.”
Chris highlights that once again, the Gift of The Year awards will be celebrating innovation and newness as well as the ‘wow’ factor. “This year has seen the new website allow entrants a smoother entering process as well as elevating the judging process so that buyers and retailers get to see products in the best showcase possible.”
Max Publishing/Progressive Gifts & Home and GiftsandHome.net are sponsoring two categories in 2021: Branded Gift and Under £15.
