WE ARE GIFT OF THE YEAR FINALISTS
We have some exciting news to share with you… We have once again made the finals of the Gift of the Year Awards with our sustainable, design-led gifts for children. At the core of our brand is a commitment to the environment, fun, nostalgia, and education. Clearly, the awards judges recognised our commitment to innovation and the power of play.
The joyous, educational, and eco-friendly gifts for children that have been announced as finalists in this year’s Gift of the Year Awards are the Make Your Own Dinosaur Timeline & World Map (Children’s and Educational category) and Create Your Own Paper Pocket Money Kits! (Design and Craft and Under £15 category).
The Create Your Own Paper Pocket Money Kits! Reflects the brand’s environmental and educational values, as they look at commercial market areas that are unsustainable and could be changed for the better. Each pocket-sized product is made from one piece of card that folds flat into an envelope to reduce its volumetric and carbon footprint. When creating this range, we tried to take all the elements of a party bag and make them into one sustainable product. Each product is usually filled with make-your-own activities including a pop-out activity, a game to play, jokes, and facts. The products can come packed in a cardboard point-of-sale unit that can be refilled reducing the use of extra cardboard inner cartons and waste. Clockwork Soldier is absolutely leading the way when it comes to innovative, design-led, sustainable gifts.
The Gift of the Year Awards are the most highly respected industry accolades, aimed at recognising the best new products, talent, and inspiration in our industry each year. The winners will be announced at a glittering ceremony in London on 11th May 2023.
