I know the frustration of trying to find a gift for somebody who seems to have everything. What finally helped me take the angst out of gift buying was starting to think outside the box. Since then, it seems to be easier to find something that my loved one will like, whatever the occasion. These days, I look in unusual places for gift ideas. Instead of retail shops, I see what is happening at local auction houses. I may look into getting my loved one something they've expressed an interest in recently, like taking guitar lessons. I may even surprise my friend with a visit from a chef who prepares a special meal just for him or her. If you have the gift buying blues, let me help. I'll provide some tips on how to get clues for wonderful presents that will delight and amaze your loved ones.
Owning a bakery during the holidays can feel like a dream come true. On top of being able to spread some seasonal cheer, you get to enjoy watching your baked goods fly off of the shelf. Whether you enjoy making holiday cookies or designer cakes for people to use to celebrate their special occasions, it is easy to get into the spirit of giving when you have the opportunity to share your baking talents with your community.
Once your holiday season slows down, it is time to start thinking about how you will make the next one even better. As you get your creative juices flowing, consider these four ways that you can use Christmas SVG files to increase your holiday sales and make your bakery stand out as the go-to place for seasonal treats.
Make Seasonal Stickers to Put On Products
Promotional stickers have many uses in your bakery, and adding Christmas images to them establishes a sense of charm that your customers will notice. Try adding a few stickers with funny holiday pictures or sayings to your cookie wrappers as seals. Or, you can dress up plain white baked goodie boxes with a fun seasonal sticker that is just the right size.
Design New Non-Baked Items to Sell
Christmas SVG files make it easy to create all kinds of fun products that you can put on your selves. For instance, your customers might appreciate having a decorated cookie tin that they can put your baked goods in to give as gifts. Tote bags and t-shirts are other great options that you can make using seasonal image files, and your customers might like to use these as reusable wrapping for baked gifts.
Create Fun Pieces of Dining Decor
If your bakery has a dining area, then decorating for the holidays makes it more likely that people will want to use the space to meet with their family and friends. Your holiday image files are also a wonderfully simple way to make temporary seasonal decor that you can use to increase the festive atmosphere of your bakery. For example, you can print out an image to put on a piece of wall art, or you can get crafty and put the pictures on plates or platters.
Send Out Holiday Cards to Your Customers
The holidays are the perfect time to make direct contact with your customers. You can also use the files to make seasonal cards to send to people who have visited your bakery in the past. Keep in mind that you might want to choose images for your cards that fit a diverse range of people, and consider adding a small promotion on baked goods as an extra surprise for your loyal customers.
