Say Anything Planters from Sullivan Gift

Gift Shop Plus Winter 2022
The Mood of 2022 By Julie McCallum

Five trend reports that offer beneficial information for retailers looking to develop an outstanding product mix

Sentiments, attitudes and opinions are trending as consumers are searching for ways to express themselves. Whether looking to a higher power for inspiration, or something cheeky for a laugh, products that fit a mood are trending. Mental health awareness is having a moment, and rightly so.

Creating space for dialog and awareness is essential to reduce the stigma. Continuing the fight for fairness and equality remains a priority, as does celebrating fearless women, something that will always be on trend.
