With just over two months until Harrogate Christmas & Gift, the festive industry is gearing up for its most important trade event of the year from 16th to 19th January 2022 at the Harrogate Convention Centre.
Seeing, feeling and often smelling gift type products first-hand is imperative for gauging how consumers will react to stock on the shelves â€“ and this is the first opportunity for many industry buyers to do this in over two years.
As well as numerous favourite festive brands attending, the 2022 show welcomes some new names to the table too, including one of the UKâ€™s leading textile suppliers, Portfolio Home. This exciting company is ready to bring its exciting range of festive throws, cushions, bed linen and more to Harrogate for the very first time in its 50-year history.
Paul Callan, managing director, commented: â€œWeâ€™re really looking forward to Harrogate Christmas & Gift Fair. We have a wide range of products to showcase retailers which includes Christmas specific products but also autumnal and year-round products for increased sales. It will be wonderful to be out and about again, mixing, networking and connecting with so many buyers.â€
Portfolio Home will be showcasing a range of goods which add additional basket-value for retailers which are all geared towards the â€˜golden quarterâ€™ retail Christmas sales where traditionally, demand is high. The products on display feature familiar faces for Christmas such as Santa Claus, Rudolf, Gingerbread men but also some new trends such as Gonks and Snowy Penguins.
Other new names for 2022 include Arora Design with distinctly different giftware designed and created in the UK by talented British artists; Gibson Plus with a range of signs, badges and decorations; Wikholmform â€“ one of Scandinaviaâ€™s leading wholesales to florist and interior design stores; and The English Soap Company with finely fragranced gift sets and gift boxes.
