Since this is the last issue of 2014 it seems the perfect opportunity to wish you well for Christmas retailing. Our regular columnist, David Metcalfe (Page 14) is predicting a bumper Christmas for gift retailers and I am sure he will be proved right. Recent trade shows have reported


increased optimism among suppliers and buyers with British innovation coming to the fore – particularly in craft and design- led product. Here at Giftware Review & Home


Interiors our new look has been very well received and we approach 2015 with fresh enthusiasm for the industry and its future prosperity. May I wish you all a very happy


Christmas and all the best for the New Year and the trading year beyond.
