British gift and stationery brand Fox Under the Moon has won the Gift of the Year 2023’s People’s Choice Award for its mindful picture books. Author and illustrator Stacey McNeill was presented with a trophy at a ceremony held during this week’s Harrogate Home and Gift.
Voted for by the public, the winning collection includes two books featuring heart-warming conversations between fox, moon and their friends. Both titles are designed to encourage positivity and self-love, with powerful words and beautiful illustrations of wildlife, woodlands and night skies
The Fox under the Moon range also includes boutique-friendly product options based on the books – from beautifully designed colouring books and affirmation cards to greetings cards, wall calendars, key rings and art prints.
“I am thrilled and humbled to receive The People’s Choice Award,” says Stacey. “It is truly an honour to see the positive impact Fox Under the Moon has had on people’s lives. I hope that the messages of self-love and encouragement continue to bring comfort to individuals and inspire them to navigate life’s challenges with hope and resilience.”
Sarah Ward, CEO for organiser The Giftware Association, adds: “Fox Under The Moon is a beautiful brand creating products with universal appeal. This is the third year we have run The People’s Choice Awards, and the number of votes from the public this year has been staggering. Each year, the awards recognise the remarkable talent and creativity of the members, which range from retailers to suppliers, high street brands to individual craftspeople and many others. I can’t wait to see the way in which this well-deserved win for Fox Under the Moon propels the brand forward in the coming year.”
