With so much competition in retail, especially around the holiday season, it’s important to stand out of the crowd with eye-catching Christmas displays.

We asked some of our customers to show us how they’ve got their brick and mortar store or ecommerce site in the Christmas spirit. Here’s our pick of the best…

 

Natural Baby Shower

Natural Baby Shower have created a lovely Christmas display in their showroom in Bagshot, Surrey. Mixing a range of toys, clothes and Christmas trees, the display offers gift ideas and a very festive feel.

There’s some great gift ideas including a wooden balance scooter, traditional slippers and a fire truck. We love the reindeer, penguin clothing and Christmas train… Good work Natural Baby Shower!

Clifton and Victoria founded Natural Baby Shower in 2007 from their home and now have a team of staff, a warehouse and are selling on multiple channels.

The Priory Menswear

The Priory have gone for a homely approach with a traditional Christmas tree placed in store in front of a well-merchandised and easy-to-shop display of backpacks and shoes, making brick and mortar shopping simple. If you look closely you can even spot some fairy lights displayed on the right side of the Christmas tree!

Easy-to-shop Christmas displays are the key to increased sales during busy periods as customers stress levels are already high so they want the easiest shopping experience possible.

It’s not just about making physical stores Christmas-themed but it’s also important in ecommerce. Whether that’s highlighting Christmas gifts on your homepage, adding some virtual snow or adding holiday-themed images.

Online shopping has been on the rise for a while but it has become increasingly popular this holiday season with 45% of ecommerce sales now made via mobile devices and online shopping topping stores on Black Friday weekend.
