Shimmering with pastel colours and freshness, spring 2016 is all about having a few key staples in stock, to easily mirror the highlights of the season and maximise your sales.
One big gifting opportunity during spring is Easter. Both the young and young-at-heart celebrate this time of year with family and friends. Fill willow baskets and card hampers with your bounty of chocolate Easter eggs & cuddly bunnies nestled in brightly coloured shred.
Stock up on lavender tissue paper – a beautiful hue that can help punctuate the season when it comes to wrapping up bouquets of countryside wild flowers or indulgent gift hampers. Accent with a cream card gift tag, perfect for a hand written message, to add that finishing touch.
And who could resist the aromatic hot cross buns which adorn the high streets during Easter?! Pile high your hot cross buns on wire cooling racks to create not only your special store look, but temptation too!
One of the most iconic British pastimes for many up and down the country is gardening. National Gardening week, which takes place in April, is not only a chance to visit historical, educational and fruitful gardens, but it’s also a time for retail.
A simple and effective product for your displays would be our simple garden trug. How better to maximise gift giving during this period when you house your specialty products in a garden trug. Inspired! Load it with sumptuous baked goods, bulbs and seeds, or overflowing with outdoor paraphernalia. In this case, the trug becomes as important as the items you put into it.
