The Giftware Association has announced the finalists for its Gift of the Year 2020 awards (GOTY). The judges, consisting of retailers, buyers and key industry experts, met at the The Button Factory in the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham to select the winners and highly commended products.

 

The judges voted for their favourite products and ranges that were shortlisted for the awards in December. The judges included representatives from John Lewis, Ocado, The National Gallery, Paper Tiger and Not on the High Street. At the end of the day and following much deliberation, the judges revealed the list of finalists - see all the categories with their finalists featured below, listed in alphabetical order.

 

Sarah Ward, CEO of The Giftware Association, said: “It’s great to see so many judges on live judging day, I don’t think we have ever had this many in one room judging the categories all at once.”

 

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on the first day of Spring Fair.
