2024 GOTY finalists revealed

Greetings companies feature across all 20 Gift Of The Year categories

Braille, chocolate, pop-ups and notebooks have all made the grade in the Gift Of The Year 2024 finalists’ list.

The big reveal of the 120 finalists happened this morning, 20 February, following the final in-person judging session at Spring Fair earlier this month when retailers and industry folk carefully examined the shortlisted entries in the 20 categories.

And, with the votes having been collated by GOTY organiser The Giftware Association, the thousands of entries have been whittled down to six finalists in each category – and no less than 24 come from companies connected to the greetings industry

The full list of 2024 Gift Of The Year finalists is below, and the winners will be revealed at the glittering Gift Awards ceremony on Thursday, 16 May, at London’s Royal Lancaster Hotel, along with the Greats Awards for gift retailers from Max Publishing.
