The Olympics and Jubilee – Gifts for British retailers?

We’re almost in to 2012 and what a big year it will be for Britain. The worlds eyes will be on us as we host the Olympics and I’m sure our Queens Diamond Jubilee will get more than a glance!

To mark both of these events there is a plethora of British flag waving gifts coming on to the market.

The Union Jack is appearing on everything from cards to canes

Of course there are also items particularly showcasing the Jublilee such as those above from Elgate, who incidentally also offer us the Olympic mascots – what exactly are they?!

Lets hope that all these patriotic offerings are popular with ourselves, and the huge numbers of visitors expected, and give British retailers a boost.

Your turn!

What’s the most unusual object you’ve seen decorated with the Union Jack? And have you got a picture of it you could send? I’d love to hear from you.
