“Gift of the Year is definitely good for business,” was the clear message from the winners of the 2016 competition.

Ben Spence, owner of Ginger Ray commented “winning the Judges Choice award for our Heart Drop Guest Book Frame is amazing I never anticipated we would win the Occasions category let alone the Judges Choice. It’s a terrific achievement for us and the award is something we will use over and over again to promote our business. We also won in 2015 so we are doubly delighted and to meet Cath Kidston was one of the highlights of our night”

Treat Gifts also continued it's run of success winning in 2015 and again in 2016 in the Commemorative and Collectables category with their Baby Personalised Oak Photo Keepsakes Box. Anuj Ghaghada, Head of Operations said “We are really chuffed! Winning Gift of the Year has and will continue to raise our profile. When you’ve had a run of Gift of the Year wins it gives you credibility and people appreciate that everything we produce is going to be of premium quality”

Carrie Elspeth, commented on winning her two awards with mycolour bands and Agate Medley in the Fashion category said ‘I was blown away and then we won the second award I couldn’t believe it! Gift of the Year is definitely good for business. We already had interest from our customers after being shortlisted and then becoming finalists, we’ve used all the promotional material on our website and Facebook and then when we won we put out the news straight away and we’ve had lots of great feedback’

Lisa Marcuccio, Really Good, said “we are so proud to have won a Gift of the Year Award with our Showtime Cards, especially as it is the first time we’ve entered.  We will definitely be entering next year!  We have already opened new accounts at the show as a result of the recognition from the Gift Association. Yes we are really pleased”
