From the editor

All that glitters

Jewellery, in whatever iteration, is always a great seller. We see it time and time again. Whether you’re an accessories boutique with a vast array of different jewellery options, or you are predominately focused on gifts and are thinking about branching out into offering necklaces, rings and bracelets in order to entice the pick-up consumer, jewellery is a sure-fire sales hit.

This issue we have two features looking at different jewellery trends. Celestial styles, inspired by the stars, are definitely en vogue right now, with the fashion-forward consumer loving the cosmos-inspired jewellery items. Meanwhile gold items are classic yet fashionable, traditional yet stylish, and whimsical yet strong – ticking every box and more.

Of course, that’s not all we’re covering this issue. We throw the spotlight on the best handbags and backpacks to market, as well as our round-up of rings and watches. Focusing on shows, we have in-depth previews of Pure x JATC and Scoop – two great events that will help refine your in-store offering and help guide you on what’s hot in the industry right now.

And finally, in our op-ed blog I look at while it’s important to support advocacy days such as International Women’s Day and Pride month, coming up in June, it’s imperative that you are consistent, authentic and intentional with your marketing all-year round in order to highlight your genuine support for these important causes.

Enjoy the issue!

Shop local

Local gift cards are driving spend in high streets and downtowns around the world, says fintech Miconex as it shares key insights from its local gift card programmes in the UK, Ireland, Canada and the USA. The range of independent businesses which accept Miconex's local gift cards – usually alongside a range of national brands – makes the cards unique in the sector. A typical 50 percent, and up to 100 percent, of its local gift cards are redeemed with independent shops, restaurants and venues. Retail was top for redemptions of local gift cards in 2023 in the UK. Primark, M&S, Boots, Argos, TK Maxx, Next, Sainsbury's, John Lewis, Dunnes Stores and Aldi were within the top national retailers. New national retailers including Co-op, Smyths Toys and Lidl joined the economy boosting local gift card programmes in 2023.

Cybercrime consequences

Martin McTague, National Chair, the Federation of Small Businesses, looks into the impact of cybercrime on small businesses. The Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) research into business crime unveils a distressing landscape for small businesses in England and Wales, compounded by a surge in both physical and cybercrimes over the last two years. Cracking the Case, published in December, estimates that 81 percent of small businesses have been impacted by at least one crime since January 2021. This a significant increase from the 49 percent reported between 2017-2019. The financial burden of traditional crime is considerable. More than half of these businesses (56 percent) have faced losses exceeding £1,000, while 33 percent have incurred losses of up to £1,000. The situation is worse for one in ten businesses, who have lost over £10,000.
