Festive reveals ‘A Picture Perfect Christmas’, at Harrogate Christmas & Gift 2016
Just as the new year is starting, Festive will be gearing up for the popular Harrogate Christmas and Gift trade show that we love to attend. Harrogate International Centre is hosting the Christmas and Gift 2016 show from Sunday 10th to Wednesday 13th January, 9am – 6pm Sunday to Tuesday and 9am – 4pm on Wednesday. Festive Productions will be there with our new theme of wholesale Christmas decorations, ‘A Picture Perfect Christmas’.
What’s on our stand at Harrogate Christmas and Gift 2016?
In January 2015 we took our showpiece Mini on the road as part of our ‘Home for Christmas’ theme. We even commissioned a toy Mini with a tiny Christmas tree on top, to match!
This year our theme is called ‘A Picture Perfect Christmas’ and the stand will include wonderful Scandinavian decorations – an endearing range of characters known as Christmas Gonks, with masses of woolly hair and big noses that peak out from under their knitted hats. Alongside traditional style decorations with a folk inspired twist, these wooden and felt designs are proving to be a popular alternative to the norm.
We are also looking forward to revealing a spectacular range of Christmas lights for both indoors and outdoors. In particular, ‘Look no Plug’ is the Festive brand of Christmas lighting that is battery powered and fully weatherproof, guaranteed to last the whole of the festive season.
And of course, Festive will be revealing our very latest licensed designs – a range of brand new wholesale Christmas decorations from our latest collaborations. For more details on just which licenses, you will have to visit our stand! Oh OK, here’s a sneak peek…

Why Festive loves Harrogate Christmas and Gift 2016
As Christmas and Gift say themselves, “the UK are busily predicting ‘must have’ products for Christmas” and in this industry it starts in January.
We love Harrogate’s Christmas and Gift because the show is held at the International Centre where the 13,700 square meters of exhibition space is filled with innovative and inspiring displays of every kind, for all the national celebrations. Of course Christmas is the reason we are there, but during breaks we like to visit the stands that showcase Valentine’s, Easter, Halloween and birthdays and weddings.
Cassie Hedlund of Festive says, “Festive has been going to Harrogate for over 25 years and we love it more every year – the show organisers are great!”
The buzz created by the events teams at Christmas and Gift in the lead up to the show always produces a terrific turn out of visitors. The atmosphere on the day is one of anticipation for holidays to come and excitement at the reveal of the latest trends and fashions in wholesale Christmas decorations and gifts.
Cassie goes on to explain the reasons that Christmas and Gift, Harrogate is a favourite of theirs:
“The show has a lovely intimate and truly Christmassy feel, the Christmas lights in Harrogate town are still up which helps set the scene perfectly, to showcase a new Christmas year for Festive.”
For Christmas decoration wholesalers, Harrogate Christmas and Gift cannot be missed!
