The new combination sets in both cookware/kitchenware and dinnerware are designed to provide convenient solutions to younger consumers heading back to school or into new apartments.
“The new Gibson Home packaging has a cooler, more chicly understated look that is right on target for back to school,” Grace Saari, Gibson’s director/marketing, said. “Parents and students both like the value pricing and the collection designs— plus, they are definitely drawn to the updated gift box.”
The kitchenware series, Total Kitchen, comes in 39- and 50-piece sets, with suggested retail prices of $44.99 and $74.99, respectively.
The smaller combination set features non-stick cookware, a roaster with rack, cutlery and cutting board, measuring spoons and cups, bag clips and nylon kitchen tools.
