The largest contest in the gift and home industry is upon us, with the Gift of the Year 2023 awards, organised by The Giftware Association (GA), launching at the Home & Gift trade fair in Harrogate on July 17.

GA PR & marketing manager Chris Workman said: “We want to grow on 2022’s success and really boost the competition to new audiences, as well as encourage brands to enter earlier so we can highlight their great products. We have been working hard behind the scenes to create a smooth user journey on our website for entering products, and we will be reviewing sustainability through all categories of the competition, and recruiting specialist judges for selected categories.”

Gift of the Year celebrates the best products in the home and gift industry and aims to elevate brands and products to the audience that matters most: buyers and retailers. The 2023 competition features 18 categories that cover the whole of the home and gift sector, and welcomes back the People’s Choice Award, where judging is opened up to end-consumers and the general public – giving products even more exposure to a buying audience. The GA will allow entry to the People’s Choice award for all shortlisted companies.
