Are you looking for inspirations to make shoppers pick your products for this gift-sharing season?
Add a festive feeling to your shop and reach shoppers looking for the perfect gift with these awesome handmade business inspirations.
But before you get inspired, I want you to know these two important things on how to make your products gift-worthy.
First, put your products together in a set. Sets can take some of the work out of gift buying for a customer. In my personal experience, my friend Ganessa is raving about those make up sets released by Too Faced. I checked them out and their set and packaging was awesome!
We find that gift sets sell very well during the holiday, noting that a lead photo of the complete set is vital. With price range in mind, you can figure out what the best way to put together a set for your target customer. It’s smart to reassess for the holiday season and try to make it more of a grab-and-go price. Maybe that just means putting fewer items in your set, but always look at what your best sellers are and see what has sold over the last month or so.
Secondly, offering gift wrap saves your customers time and makes it easy for them to imagine giving your item as a gift. You can add an optional gift wrap fee to cover the cost of your materials by using variations.
So don’t forget to prepare all of your supplies before holiday orders start coming in – including extra wrapping paper and gift tags. Have more than you think you need. The last thing you want to do is say no because you’re not ready.
Now that you got that, here are a few inspiration on how to apply those principles into your business:
