The Greats Awards 2023 #Greats23

Calling all gift retailers! The Greats Gift Retailer Awards 2023 are open, setting out to recognise and reward the crème de la crème of the UK’s amazing gift shops and gift departments.  With the competition now in its 21st milestone year, we want retailers to tell us why their shop could be a winner!

A downloadable entry form is available from or entries can be emailed to 

Uniting the gift industry, The Greats gift retailer awards have joined forces with The Giftware Association’s Gift of the Year (GOTY) awards, with all winners – both The Greats and the GOTY – revealed at a fabulous black tie awards event, to be held at the glamorous Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Thursday May 11.

“Winning a Greats Gift Retailer award has become the pinnacle for gift retailers both large and small – a prestigious, coveted retail trophy that recognises excellence, initiative, innovation and professionalism at the highest level,” says Sue Marks, editor of Progressive Gifts & Home which organises The Greats awards. “As always, we are looking for those outstanding gift retailers who are a cut above the rest and have continued to up the ante by being resilient and resourceful in a challenging trading period.”

Continues Sue “We would love to hear what gift retailers have done over the past 12 months to really up the ante and encourage new business, to include retail initiatives, outstanding displays, charity and local community involvement, product diversification and the opening of a new outlet etc.”
