This is it, the last month of the largest competition in the gift and homeware world, your chance to enter your fabulous products and get them seen by buyers and retailers who judge the competition, as well as raising your profile and boosting sales, but be quick as you only have until the 30th November to enter.

 The competition is a great way to get your products and business noticed, from just entering the competition you get collateral to shout about your nominated products and guaranteed for them to be seen by the audience that matters – buyers and retailers. At each competition stage that you make it through to, you get extra collateral to shout about, and your exposure will be raised from extra PR and promotions from trade press and our partners.

As the Gift of the Year competition enters its last month of collecting entries don’t just take our word for how well the coemption can work for you, we have spoken to previous winners of the competition and why they will be entering again

“Winning Gift of the Year has been a huge help to my business. I received a lot of publicity at the time and it gave the products and myself as a designer a level of credibility and reliability that I did not have before.”  – Victoria Eggs, Winner 2012

“The awards have really supported us with industry-wide awareness as we’ve moved more into gifting over the years. Being recognised in a category helps us to reach new buyers” – Burgon and Ball, Winners 2015 & 2016

“We would definitely recommend other businesses to enter the Gift of the Year in the future. It is a great platform for meeting new customers, raising the profile of the business and receiving the acknowledgement of the hard work that goes into producing great quality products.” – Wrendale, Winners, 2016

For your chance to be one of our 22 category winners, or take home the judges choice or peoples choice crown go to and enter your products now.

You have until the 30th November to get your entries in.
