A key date in the retail buying calendar, the Home and Gift Buyers’ Festival remains the retail industry’s favourite. Flawlessly mixing business with that quintessentially British holiday vibe it’s a huge contrast to a ‘big, grey box’ event, Home and Gift stands out as how business really should be done. As the first event in the second buying season it’s the perfect opportunity to get your pick of product for A/W, Christmas and Spring.

For nearly 60 years Home & Gift has been the launch-pad for the greatest of giftware, jewellery, home, greetings products – gifts that have been craved, loved and cherished by generations of customers. We’ve built up a strong reputation amongst retailers, designers and manufacturers alike and always strive to provide a professional and friendly backdrop for sourcing products as well as networking and meeting industry leaders.

From its early years as a group of suppliers putting on a small event in a hotel, Home & Gift - or ‘Harrogate’ as many still know it – has grown to be a firmly-inked date in the diaries of generations of retailers and exhibitors.

Visitors have been coming to Home and Gift for years and some describe it as a gathering of old friends. The fact that visitors return again and again really is a testament to the value of the show – whether a large retailer or an independent trader, Home and Gift is a one stop shop for all buying needs.
