Thanks to everyone who has entered. The judges are now working to create shortlists, which will be announced on Thursday 13th December.
Celebrating the best in home and gift retailing, the Gift of The Year Awards are the most highly-respected industry accolades aimed at recognising the best new products. This year we will have more judges and more categories give your products a greater showcase to shine and be seen by key industry experts, buyers and retailers.
Being crowned a winner can give your business industry-wide recognition and increase sales and revenue as our previous winners have found. The ultimate winner wins a stand at Autumn Fair but just entering raises your profile amongst our judges.
We’re looking to find the most exciting and innovative new products available on the market in 2018/19.
Do you have what it takes?
"We were incredibly excited to be shortlisted and then to actually win was fantastic! We make sure to use the winning icon on POS materials, which we supply to help retailers large and small display this GOTY 'badge of honour' to inform their customers about the product in question. It certainly does bring some new trade customers who would perhaps not have had the product 'on their radar' before." -- Designed In Colour
