If grapes are “fruit of the gods” they are most certainly suitable for Valentine’s day! Cupid’s arrow takes on a whole new meaning with these romantic fruit kebabs.
Retail displays and inspiration go hand-in hand on Valentine’s Day
The trend on spending for Valentine’s Day continues to go up! Shoppers said they planned to spend an average $196.31on Valentine’s Day in 2020, according to the National Retail Federation. That’s an increase of 21 percent over the 2019 record of $161.96.
Fresh flowers, fruit, chocolate, wine, cheese – sometimes just putting out a beautiful assortment of stock items sends the right message: bring home something special.
No need to rely on pre-packaged Valentine’s chocolates, stuffed bears or other SNL skit-inspired “gifts.” Instead, go with your own unique in-store display with an added personal touch, such as:
- Chocolate fondue recipe card with the ingredients right there
- Staff-recommended wine & cheese pairings
- Local chef-inspired gourmet dinner recipes with shopping list
- Top-selling Valentine’s Day items for shoppers needing a quick and easy (but thoughtful!) purchase
- “Gourmet Valentine’s Day” banner with assorted delicacies
- Spotlight on a local chocolatier or other artisanal goods
And as always, display contests can inspire staff to create eye-catching and profitable displays, no matter the season.
We hope these ideas help sweeten up your Valentine’s Day displays!
