Editor’s picks: the best of Spring Fair Christmas
Ahead of Festive Focus Day on 21st January, our editor takes a look at some of the most exciting Christmas ranges our exhibitors have to offer.
Ling Design Group’s 2021 Christmas brochure has been dropping through customer’s doors over the past few weeks. Those who have already looked through our collection will have noticed our exquisite and compelling new designs, additions to our most popular ranges and brand new gift packaging from our Penny Kennedy range.
The new Christmas 2021 range perfectly captures the magical spirit of the festive season in one distinctive collection of fresh and energised greetings cards and continue to make significant steps towards sustainability and protecting the environment. We have removed all acetate from our boxed cards and have introduced a belly-band into our cello packs. We are glitter free in our new boxed and single range and continue to roll out eco-friendly packaging across all our ranges.

WIDDOP’s 135-year history of innovation and excellence in giftware trading has solidified WIDDOP and Co’s status as one of the UK’s best wholesale gift companies.

With over 1,200 new products on offer, the 2021 Floralsilk Christmas Collection is based on elements that embrace the magic of Christmas through the wonder of the natural world to bring a sense of community, responsibility and simplicity to Christmas. A ‘back to basics’ post pandemic feel that speaks of hope, growth and renewal.
One theme that demonstrates this perfectly is our ‘Nature’ range. Sustainable and conscious with a palette that includes beach blues, corals and taupes. Using natural materials and textures including paper, metal, wood and grasses, this theme is fresh, clean and pretty.
Another of our 2021 themes is our ‘Earth’ Collection. Deep earthy tones of greens, oranges, browns and reds give a real feel of Christmas in the country. Think pine cones, berries, classic greenery and a few friendly gonks.
As well as the traditional, there is certainly some flamboyance in the trends for Christmas 2021 and our ‘Fire’ theme is a great example of this. Pink and red pampas grass decorations with the inclusion of floral accents add a modern twist to a warm & opulent red, gold and pink colour palette.
