In-Store Must-Haves for Valentine's Day

As Valentine's Day approaches, stock your store with the right items to maximise sales and take advantage of customers needing last minute Valentine’s gifts.

Here are the top five must-haves for any store during this special season of love:


1. Chocolates

This classic Valentine's treat never goes out of style. Make sure your store shelves are stocked with a variety of chocolates in all shapes and sizes - from specialty truffles to traditional candy bars!

2. Flowers

Show customers you care by offering fresh cut flowers at discounted prices. Roses, lilies, and daisies will fit any budget and make perfect gifts whether they’re being given as a romantic gesture or simply as a token of appreciation.


3. Greeting Cards:

In addition to providing thoughtful words, greeting cards are also great for boosting sales and giving customers something to remember your store by! Make sure to have a variety so that customers don’t have to search elsewhere.


4. Prosecco/Fizz

Celebrations call for prosecco, which makes it essential on Valentine’s Day. In the run-up to Valentine’s Day, customers are sure to be on the lookout for prosecco and other bubbly beverages, so make sure your store offers a variety of styles and brands.


5. Gift Wrap & Accessories

In order to complete the perfect Valentine's Day shopping experience, make sure you offer wrapping paper, gift bags, tissue paper, and other decorative accessories. This will help customers make their gifts look even more special and personal.


By offering these items in your store this Valentines Day, you can be sure to have the perfect selection of presents for your customers! With a wide range of chocolates, flowers, cards, prosecco/fizz and wrap accessories available - what’s not to love?

Also be sure to have your shop decorated with valentines themed stock ready for the special day, from ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ banners to heart balloons. This type of effort draws people in through the windows with customers already knowing before they walk through the door that they can get their valentines essentials from your store.
