Christmas can be one of the most lucrative times of year for savvy homeware and giftware retailers. You need to keep ahead of the trends for this specific seasonal period judging by how the year has gone, and even what the new year will have to offer in terms of new styles.

To help make up your mind on which products are must-have’s for the shopping list of any homeware retailer or gift store that is stocking up for Christmas, we used our experience as giftware wholesalers to compile the CIMC Christmas Gift Guide for 2016. Read on to find out what we predict to be some of the best-selling wholesale giftware lines for this winter.

Christmas collection

This year, we’ve launched a brand new collection of Christmas-themed giftware and decorations, just in time for the holidays, for retailers and interior designers to stock up on. A firm must-have on this year’s Christmas Gift Guide, together with these three new gorgeous Christmas ranges:

Novelty range of seasonal decorations that also make for adorable gifts
Crystal range of elegant glassware, candle holders and other accessories – perfect for adding a touch of elegance and glamour to any Christmas dinner!
Frosted Glassware which has proved to be a favourite with homeware retailers, as well as hotels and restaurants, as this glassware collection is great for Christmas, but can also be used throughout the winter and for New Year Eve’s parties.

Figurines 

More than just ornaments, figurines from CIMC come in a whole host of different styles and designs. They can be used to represent a special moment in someone’s life, like a recent engagement. Our Love Story collection is extremely popular around the winter holidays which are also known as ‘engagement season’, or can simply be used to add a romantic touch to any room.

Another popular range of figurines for Christmas is also the Angelic Cherubs one, which features beautiful angel decorations, perfect for the holidays.

Storage boxes

Some customers love buying gifts which might seem a little bit out of the ordinary. Those gifts which are truly thoughtful. There is an added bonus when this type of giftware is also extremely practical and stylish like the storage boxes available to buy in bulk at CIMC, which can be used to store other gifts received at Christmas, like jewellery.

Ranging from the explorer style ‘Around the world’ storage boxes to the Midnight Sparkle wooden drawers, you can be sure to find something to cater to different consumer preferences.

Home Accessories

The wholesale home accessories available at CIMC include an extensive selection of beautiful, yet functional items that can appeal to customers looking for the quirky gift that will stand out on Christmas morning. Retailers can choose from a wide variety of eye-catching statement pieces, the Glitz accessories range which remains a best-selling giftware wholesale collection throughout the year.

Last, but not least, since Christmas is the ‘time of giving’, don’t forget to add some stylish gift boxes to your stock, so you can offer added value to your busy customers, who may not have the time to spend hours wrapping Christmas presents, and are looking for a more practical solution.
