On Sunday 3rd Feb we travelled up to Birmingham to the NEC where Spring Fair is being held. As fun as it was to look around all the amazing stands and fabulous products on show, we were there for one very important reason…The Gift of the Year Awards ceremony!

After beating some tough competition from both new and established brands, My Icon Story was one of 12 shortlisted and then chosen as a Finalist in the Commemorative & Collectible Gifts category.  On the night we were awarded with a Highly Commended accolade and are so proud of this brilliant achievement and industry recognition…(and of course we love that we received our first ever award trophy!!)
