Gift of the Year Finalists Announced

Gift of the Year 2024 Finalists Announcement

 The Finalists are here for our Gift of the Year 2024 awards, and after a hugely successful live Judging Event at Spring Fair, the news the home and Gift industry has been waiting for is here, read on to discover who the finalists are within our 20 categories.




The Winners and Highly Commended products will be announced at The Gift Awards, to be held at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel on 16 May 2024, continuing to bring together both sides of our amazing industry in one room to celebrate the best in retail and the best in product.


The Live Judging Event held at Spring Fair for the third year running was a resounding success with it being held for four days and attracted attention throughout the shows from not just the judges but all visitors alike who were using the area as a stop off point to find the best new exciting products on offer.


Chris Workman said of the live judging “It was great to be back at Spring Fair to live judge again and we could not have been happier with the area allowing the products to shine and also the attention they deserve. We also excitingly signed up a potential 80 new judges to the awards from across the retail spectrum, to judge in next years awards” he continues “What was also great to hear was the traffic that our shortlisted exhibitors got to their stand from being on display with us in the judging area, at an already bustling Spring Fair”


Once again, The Gift of the Year awards will also be announcing the People’s Choice award which is judged by the general public, enabling everyone to vote for their favourite product across all of the Gift of the Year categories. This year, The Giftware Association has opened it up to all shortlisted products again and hopes to be its biggest year yet with over 3000 votes already counted, so there is still an opportunity for a shortlisted company to get through to become the third ever People’s Choice winner.
