The Coast is Clear at Giving & Living

Posted by Rachel Westall on 20 October 2022

Autumn might have brought a chill to the air but plans are hotting up for the next edition of Giving & Living. We’re excited to report that specialists in coastal gifts and souvenirs are lining up to join the premier event for this key sector of the home and gift trade. Brand new for the 2023 show is family business DM Gould, one of the UK's largest importers and wholesale distributors of toys and plush, along with a huge selection of beach products. With over 35 years’ experience in the trade, their brands include Fun Leisure, Fun Leisure Huggables, Britannia Rocks and Reflections (Eyewear by Fun Leisure). This is a hugely exciting addition for Giving & Living, who are thrilled to welcome them to the show.

Based near the sea in Lyme Regis, Dorset, The Shoal has a very special collection of handmade marine-themed crafts from Sicily, including quirky ceramic fish and other sea creatures, as well as paintings and other artworks. These would make a wonderful addition to any retail business that loves to celebrate the sea. More beautiful hand-crafted products can be found at the Sandscript Cards, which was founded in 2007 and is now based in Devon. The cards feature messages drawn in the sand and then beautifully photographed and made into greetings. The collection includes cards in the Welsh and French languages, as well as English.

Then there's Quay Traders, which over the years has become a true bellwether retailer for Giving & Living. This fabulous wholesale supplier has an amazing collection of coastal-themed products that will delight visitors, including a beautiful range of Decorative Driftwood home accents, Coral Resin ornaments and a huge array of gifts, souvenirs, other homeware items, curios, and knickknacks to choose from. This once again promises to be an unmissable stand for coastal enthusiasts.
