What does your business do for the Festive/Holiday Season?

Hey Sellers,

 

It may feel like it's early to think about, but we're more than halfway to the Festive/Holiday Season!

It's never too early to plan ahead, and we love to inspire here, so:

 

What does your business do for the Holidays?

 

Fall & Autumn holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving; Festive & Winter Holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years, Boxing Day, and any other holidays that we didn't think of!

 

Do you decorate your space?
Do you set up special Holiday Themed offerings like menu items or specials?
Do you run Events for your community?

How do you handle staffing and employees' time off?
How you handle long lines or large orders?

How do you promote and market your business during this time?

 

We'd love to see pictures too, so please share them in the comments!

 

Looking forward to seeing and hearing what you do.

Last Halloween we had a dragon built to break out of our attic window.. it breathed fire- it was so **bleep** cool... then we had a whole bunch of monsters in our back yard. Of course- full window display. 

 

For Christmas we do a full window display with trees and we put lights up.

I am going to be hosting a halloween shot - Barbie themed because I think it is going to be huge this year! And we run select promos encouraging people to get into the spirit - wear orange, pajama day, etc

Most retailers rely on Christmas sales to give their finances that much needed final push through to the end of the financial year, and it's typically around this period that they'll see the biggest intake.

I think we are going to do a spooky giveaway and collab with other businesses for it - pumpkin facial, acrylic nails, lashes, etc!

Having some variety in the decorations and splitting up the work is a smart move! Thank you for sharing this information.

Nothing special, I decorate houses with flowers and other stuff, just give some discount, that's it.

As owners of C'N'H handcrafts and our farm Clove 'N' Hooves we like to add a bit of farm life into our business, so we participate in several in person holiday events in our area. We also have several gift boxes and little stocking stuffers. I love to make fun little flyers for the holidays and add them to each of our orders whether online or in person, this year I designed one staring our pig Ginger.Screenshot (12).png
