Tips on Favorite Pastimes & Gifts for the Holidays

December 3, 2008

Its getting cold outside and snow is falling in many areas. Now is the time to snuggle up next to a fireplace and wrap a cozy throw around your shoulders.  Hot cider and chocolate are treats to satisfy a sweet craving and warm your insides.

The aroma of cider brewing and hot chocolate will perk up everyone’s interest. So set up cups and watch your customers gravitate towards this special treat. Keep the men occupied with sports magazines or a good old-fashioned football game on television while the women shop.

Toss a variety of cozy throw blankets around your seating vignettes and persuade your customers to sit back and put one around them. Once you are successful in getting your customers to sit back and try the furniture and accessories on for size, you will be one step closer to a sale.

Throws are a great gift for the holidays, they can be used inside a family room, near a fire pit, and especially outside for the moment you step out of a hot tub to relaxing by the fireplace.
