A Christmas of creativity and nostalgia
According to Good Housekeeping magazine, the loss of the Queen and the cost-of-living crisis will make Christmas 2022 truly different to previous years. It predicts a real desire for nostalgia and the good old days and believes that consumers will be seeking unique, personalised gifts brought from local shops and makers, with sustainability high on the agenda.
Whatever the actual trends turn out to be, retailers and buyers attending Harrogate Christmas & Gift from 15th to 18th January 2023 can be sure to find quality products to suit every budget and taste at the show. The products, which will fill the shelves in time for Christmas 2023, can be chosen with the 2022 festive season fresh in the mind. If you haven't already, don't forget to register for the show. This, show information and an exhibitor list can be viewed on the website - www.harrogatefair.com
