Stationery Trends and Gift Shop® Plus are proud to present the gift industry’s superstars with the 40 Under 40 Awards. This program acknowledges the new generation of gift industry extraordinaires. From shop owners and managers to stationers and company founders, we’re paying homage to those under forty for their seemingly countless contributions to an industry we adore.

The Class of 2022 is being honored during a reception on Sunday, July 24 during Las Vegas Market and during the Gift + Stationery Week virtual event. In addition, watch and learn more about trend forecasts, cause marketing and issues facing retailers.
