Don't just take our word for it...

Alex Vere, Commerical Director, Little Weaver Arts

“The show’s been a huge success for us - we’ve had interest from 250 new stockists with 20 confirmed already. The stand was four-deep at some points and our unique products have been really well received!’

Eleanor Gregory, Assistant Buyer – Home Accessories, Stationery & Christmas, Selfridges

“Selfridges has visited Home & Gift for over 4 years. We visit to hunt for exciting new Christmas Gifts, Stationery, greetings cards and wrapping, along with catching up with our current suppliers and talking through their new ranges. The new trend driven areas that showcase new brands are my favourite parts of the show.”

​Steve Davies, Managing Director, Joe Davies

“This is our favourite show of the year; everyone enjoys the relaxed and happy atmosphere. It’s been great to see all of our regular customers and meet lots of new ones too. We use Harrogate to showcase our new products for Autumn/Winter – we launched 2,000 at this show and the reception’s been brilliant.”

Ginny Leadley, Retail Buying and Merchandising Manager, York Museums Trust

“We’ve been attending Home & Gift in Harrogate for over 10 years. It’s a great mid-year show which gives us enough time to still source the latest products for Christmas. The show whilst large isn’t too large to navigate, the atmosphere is friendly and upbeat. We sourced several new suppliers this year and already have some of the products on display and selling well. This year we attended the merchandising talk by John Lewis which was informative and a great addition to a really productive day.”


  • It’s so important for us to be showcasing great British manufacturing here at the Home & Gift show. The footfall here is massive and it’s an opportunity for people to see the products, hear the story and for us to be able to show first-hand the quality of British manufacturing we have embraced here with the homeware and cooking range.

    Professional Chef, The Great British Exchange
  • We love the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere at Harrogate. It’s a must for buyers and a showcase for Yorkshire hospitality. We always enjoy the whole show experience, seeing new faces and meeting with some of our regular suppliers in person.
