GIFT OF THE YEAR – SHORTLIST

After four intense days of judging, the hundreds of entries into Gift of the Year 2020 have been whittled into a shortlist.

“This is always an exciting day,” said Gift of the Year’s project manager Luke. “And we’ve expanded the shortlists a little this year, which means more happy people!”

Now, amazing gift products from all over the UK – and some from outside of it – are winging their way to Giftware Association HQ for the last stage of judging, taking place in January. A number of the judges reported to the GA that they struggled to choose only a limited number of products, with more than one praising the creativity on display.

The finalists will be announced on the 10th of January, and the winners at a fabulous ceremony at Spring Fair.
