Atlanta Market provides holiday preview for Gift Shop Plus editor
For those looking to get a jump on their holiday 2022 planning, Atlanta Market had plenty of inspiration. Julie McCallum, editorial director for Gift Shop® Plus saw a few recurring themes lining up to star in the holiday season’s next top product trends.
Trees are Evergreen
As consumers strive to reconnect with nature, the traditional Christmas tree continues to be a mainstay of holiday décor. Forms have grown from the vintage-inspired bottle-brush trees to include trees made from wood and other natural materials. Ceramic trees reflect popular décor trends in muted tones and neutral stoneware, and iridescent glass trees lend themselves nicely to luxe looks.
Deer antlers pair well with a variety of holiday motifs. Brass deer mounts take on a whimsical approach when spectacles and a pipe are added. Dogs and cats, and animals in general, share the spotlight as felted mice continue to have a moment and bunnies and foxes come out of the woods.

Cardinals, nutcrackers and nativity scenes are showing up in a variety of forms. And Santa is at his finest when represented in vintage style. Consumers looking for mid-century decor inspiration will be glad to see the MCM trend reaching into holiday offerings.

A few favorites for the spooky season caught our eye, especially the Accent Décor collection featuring the color of the year, Very Peri. The Johanna Parker Designs creations for Transpac have a delightful vintage mid-century appeal.
