Gibsons takes home two Gift of the Year Awards

Published on: 5th February 2019

The independent jigsaw puzzle and board game company was presented two awards during the Spring Fair ceremony.

The Gift of the Year Awards are held by The Giftware Association, and celebrate the best in home and gift retailing through recognition of the best new products on the UK market.

Gibsons received the first award in the Occasions category for its Sweet Memories Jigsaw Puzzle Tins. These 500-piece puzzles capture everyone’s favourite sweets from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s in an eye-catching montage.

The second award was for the Festive category, which Gibsons received for its Christmas Countdown Calendar, 12 Days of Christmas. The first ever jigsaw puzzle advent calendar on the market, 12 Days of Christmas holds twelve festive 80-piece puzzles behind each door. Together the puzzles create one panoramic Christmas street scene.

“It is hugely exciting to have won both awards,” states Kate Gibson, managing director. “We are very proud of these products, especially the Calendar which took a huge amount of dedication, from the initial concept to the final design. It’s a huge honour to gain recognition for them, especially in 2019 when we are celebrating 100 years of Gibsons.”

Gibsons is exhibiting at Spring Fair in Hall 5, E30-F31.
