We headed out to the Sydney Reed Gift fair on Friday morning, to check out the latest gifts and products on offer for newsagencies.
There were some really great new products on show this year, as well as the usual favourites. We’ve compiled a series of videos with gift suppliers, to help those of you who will not be able to make it source some new products for your gift lines.

These cute soft toys can be warmed up in the microwave, the perfect bedtime toy for toddlers.
Back-to-school products by Bobble Art
Backpacks and matching stationery for trendy student. Great ranges for both boys and girls!

Who said food, fun and education didn’t go together! Great new educational products for young kids.
Gorgeous ornaments by Aero Images
These beautiful origami crane ornaments work well both as gifts and as part of a Christmas range. The happy pills later in the video are definitely worth trying out too!

We bumped into a few newsagents while at the fair. Here’s what newsagent Geoff Paton and his consultant Leslie Bortfield had to say about the gift fair:
If you’re in Sydney or nearby, there’s still time to visit – The fair is on tomorrow as well! Major fairs will be held again in August, in both Melbourne and Sydney.
