As trade fairs get set to open their doors again, we have a â€˜sneak peekâ€™ of Harrogate Home & Gift. As media partner to the show, we have an interview with Clarionâ€™s Portfolio Director ZoÃ« Bonser who tells us why itâ€™s so important for the show to run, and how they will ensure it runs as safely as possible.
Our cover stars are Steiff, the inventor of the Teddy Bear and the worldâ€™s most famous soft toy company. Take a look at their new range of sustainable soft toys called Teddies for Tomorrow. Theyâ€™re really beautiful.
We talk to Fred Prego from Menkind, the brilliant retail chain known for its gifts and gadgets, to discover how the company is tempting customers back into its bricks and mortar stores. We also have our regular Retailersâ€™ Panel, where some brilliant indie retailers tell us how reopening has gone for them.
Weâ€™ve got features on gift categories we feel are really strong at the moment â€“ At Home, Giftable Stationery and InStyle jewellery and fashion accessories.
Thereâ€™s so much more in this issue, too. News, views, comment and plenty of profiles on companies we think youâ€™ll love. You can read the issue HERE.
