With the festive season coming soon you might be wandering what to buy for those close to you and where to go where you won’t see the same old chain stores with the generic products you see every year, maybe this year you’re looking for something a little more meaningful and origonal. Sure you can look online but where would you begin with that, and then you have postage costs to pay on top of that from every different place you see.

What if there was a place where you could see a variety of different products, unusual, specialised, more thoughtful? All under one location, and not only that have a good time in a festive themed environment and really get into the xmas spirit?

The festive gift fair in birmingham may be exactly what you are looking for, promising over 325 different exhibits with shops ranging from well known brands to lesser known and varied gifts, festive food stalls to sample and a selection of entertainment and music (which I would presume to be merry jingles, possibly even xmas kareoke which would be fun, but I couldn’t tell you besides music being promised along side other entertainment) There is plenty on offer to entice you to visit, and the best part is you don’t have to pay shipping for your items.

Key Points

  • Entry will vary between £8.50-£9.50 when booked in advance
  • Open between 9:30 and 5pm from the 21st to the 24th of November (ideal to start the xmas season)
  • “wonderful, unusual and affordable presents”
  • Festive theme and entertainment
  • Eat drink and be merry with festive food and drink to sample and purchase
  • Santa will greet you when you arrive, so yes he has taken time off to come to this event because this will be where xmas begins in birmingham.

I have been provided press access to the event so I will be able to provide a much more in depth review showing the highlights and hidden gems of the event, along with photo’s and video’s from the location to give you an idea what is happening at the event, along with my personal favourites and recommendations as to what to visit and special gift idea’s from the merchants of the event.

I personally think birmingham should advertise this event more as it offers a wider selection than the german food market which takes up the streets in the city center, and beyond that is actually festive and will get people in the christmas spirit ready for the spirit, exploring a whole kingdom of festive stalls and would make a great day out for the family, and not only this it will be a great place to escape the high street and to explore new idea’s and gifts you might not have seen or considered.

If you are interested in seeing it all close up yourself I would recommend you purchase a ticket, available now from http://www.festivegiftfair.co.uk/
