At The Giftware Association we recognise the remarkable talent and creativity on display at the British Craft Trade Fair. Each year they are proud to present The Giftware Association Award for Excellence in recognition of well-designed products with commercial viability. Rachel Thornton this year’s winner was a popular choice with her fantastic wooden products.

The lucky winner gains substantial PR coverage in national trade press, social media, The GA website and e-newsletter, attracting the attention of buyers. Additionally they receive a year’s free membership with all the savings and assistance that the G.A. offer including free advice and legal help, savings on carriage costs as well as design protection with our Copywatch scheme and much more.
