Card gift trays come in a variety of colours and sizes; some with their own card lids, others with acetate lids, cello wraps or basket bags sold separately to hold contents in place.

Displaying ready-made hampers at a variety of price points within eye-line of your customers can make all the difference when it come to converting a sale.

Your customer may have only come in for a loaf of bread, but you may just inspire them to leave with something more.

A surprising number of retailers miss this crucial detail. How and where you display your gifts will always make the difference between a sale or fail.

 3. Do your homework

There’s little point making up a beautiful hamper if it doesn’t make you a profit. Know your customer and what they will pay, but also do your sums, breaking down the cost of each component, the cost price of the contents and what you can sell it for.

Then sit back and count your pennies when they start to roll in.
