Countdown to Christmas

In many households there is a family debate about when Christmas decorations should take pride of place, but according to tradition, Christmas & GiftChristmas trees and decorations should go upon the first day of the advent which is the fourth Sunday before Christmas. This year, that falls on Sunday 3rd December 2023 - however, many families will coincide their decorations with the opening of the first window on their advent calendar on 1st December.

Of course, advent calendars have been a popular tradition since the mid-19th century and have evolved from simple paper designs to those with doors and even containing little gifts. In recent years, many families are choosing reusable advent calendars made from sustainable materials such as fabric or wood.

Companies exhibiting at Harrogate Christmas & Gift with a range of advent calendars this year include Ascalon Design (Stand M12), The Great British Card Company and Ling Design (Stand Q11), and Snowtime (Stand D1).

Light up

The perfect gift to lift any occasion and suitable for all the 'Your Name in Lights' range features personalised LED light strings with glittering clear or blue letters from Mulberry Studios. The unique design allows all names to be catered for whilst the open titles bring a lift to any celebration. New improved point of sale will ensure impact in store.
