To give entrants time to finalise their entries and due to popular demand, we have decided to extend the Gift of the Year entry deadline.

The competition will now close on Wednesday, the 5th of December.

That means if you have already entered and want to consider adding more entries, or if you haven't got around to entering yet, you still have a full week. After that, the entries will close and be put in front of our panel of retailers, trade press editors and industry experts.

All entrants will receive branding they can use online or in print, with even more exclusive marketing goodies if your products are shortlisted, become finalists or even win. The winners will be announced at a special free-to-attend ceremony hosted by Spring Fair, on Sunday February 3rd.

The timetable for the competition is now as follows:

  • The closing date is next Wednesday, the 5th of December;
  • Shortlisted companies will be notified on Thursday, the 13th of December;
  • Shortlisted samples will be required by Tuesday, the 8th of January.

To enter, visit the Enter Now section on the Gift of the Year website.
