Nominate Retailers For The Greats Awards 2024

Please tell us which gift retailer deserve to be recognised
The past 12 months have been a testing time for us all, with gift retailers across the board demonstrating ingenuity and commitment, over-delivering on their product mix, the shop’s retailing environment and their customer service. With The Greats gift retailer awards celebrating 22 years in 2024, we’re on a mission to find the cream of the UK’s outstanding gift shops – but we would love your help!
As the only awards to celebrate gift retailing in the UK, The Greats shine a spotlight not only on the best independent and multiple specialist gift and lifestyle retailers regionally and nationally – to include newcomers – but also on non-specialist retailers stocking gifts, as well as department stores and garden centres.
While we do, of course, encourage gift retailers to self-nominate – there’s a downloadable form on this page – we also want to offer suppliers the opportunity to bang the drum (very loudly!) by nominating the retailers that they feel are a cut above the rest.
All we need to know is the shop’s name and address and the owner’s contact details, plus the reasons why you think the shop deserves to have their name on a Greats trophy in 2024. What have they done to make their shop stand out over the past year?
We’re looking for retail contenders in the following categories, so please nominate which gift retailers you feel have done a great job. (Two to three nominations in each category would be perfect, but please feel free to add in more names if you’d like to).

The Greats Gift Retail Awards 2024 categories are as follows:
Independent Gift Retailer Of The Year - London, The South, South East & East Anglia
Independent Gift Retailer Of The Year – North & Northern Ireland
Independent Gift Retailer Of The Year - Midlands & Wales
Independent Gift Retailer Of The Year - West & South West

The entry criteria for each category can be viewed here.

The closing date for nominations is Tuesday 20 February, 2024.
Please alert your sales teams and agents as soon as possible, and ask them to email their nominations direct to
Sue Marks:
We will then contact the gift retailers direct to let them know that they have been nominated by one of their suppliers, to encourage them to enter The Greats awards – but we will not divulge your name or company!
