An ICv2 Release.  The 2021 holiday season has already begun, with supply chain news stories (and retailers) encouraging customers to shop early to make sure they can get the items they want.  But with shortages hitting some products and categories, it’s more important than ever to leave no stone unturned when looking for gift ideas for the holidays.

We're exploring opportunities to merchandise gift items in multiple categories on this week and next with special content supported by sponsors VIZ Media, heo America, and Yen Press.

We'll be running special features and columns on merchandising holiday gifts over the next two weeks; watch the list below for our updated list of articles for ICv2’s Gifts Week!
