We started the year by attending the Christmasworld Exhibition in Frankfurt, which is a massive trade fair for producers (both large and small) to showcase upcoming new ranges and products for 2015. It’s an amazing experience to see so many different vendors in one place, but we must admit by our third day we were starting to get into Christmas overload!
Our Spring and Easter collections are almost complete. We’ve got a novel range of #Lemax Spring village options including Caddington Village and Plymouth Corners. We’ve also got a ton of Spring accessories to help bring your village to life, plus an exclusive range of the now long retired SeasonsBay series by Department 56.
For Easter there’s plenty of novel decorating ideas, with some of the most popular currently being the Easter Rabbit Carrot Tree and EasterDesign centrepiece. We’ve also just received some new hand painted wooden items including a Rabbit School and Sunflower Children.
We’re extending our décor range this Spring to the outdoors too. The #Garden Guardians by Department 56 will be available to order in full within a matter of weeks. This charming and magical range is new for 2015, and centres itself on the inhabitants of an enchanted Garden Kingdom who protect, manage and grow their kingdom whilst protecting their Rabbit Queen Alice. This collection of outdoor ornaments and accessories is a fun way to bring back life to your garden this Spring and Summer. We’re sure it will be a hit with gardeners and visitors alike.
If you’re a fan or serious collector of teddy bears, we’ve got some of the most recent introductions of the Spring and Summer collections by the world famous Boyds Bears. Not seen in the UK for a while now, Boyds Bears have been bringing smiles to collectors and fans alike for over 35 years. Whilst Boyds Bears is sadly being put into retirement, you will be able to purchase some wonderful treasures shortly by visiting our new Boyds Bears section.
We continue to introduce website improvements to make it easier for our customers to get interactive with us and provide a better shopping experience. We’ve recently made a couple of changes to our check out page, a new contact form is available for queries, and a new live chat feature will be available starting Monday 6th April. Whilst our customer service team normally operate Monday to Friday, we’re planning on making our live chat feature available at weekends for extra convenience.
Don’t forget Easter is on the 5th April this year. Wishing you an early and Happy Easter,
The Team at FestiveHomeGifts.com
