Retail Gift and Souvenir Displays that Drive Impulse Sales- Part I

Gifts and souvenirs are big business and getting bigger. The global gifts, novelty, and souvenirs market is expected to grow 5% annually to $16.3 billion by 2023. Few of us can resist buying a memento or keepsake to remind us of a special memory, place, or event. As time marches on, souvenirs are often the things that take us back to that happy place, the things that help us to document our life’s journey. Welcome to Part I of our 2-part series on retail gift and souvenir displays that drive impulse sales.

It is important to recognize that gifts, novelties, and souvenirs are rarely destination items. Rather, they are almost always impulse purchases. This shopping truth has some important implications when it comes to POP displays. First, the display has to be an attention grabber. To drive impulse sales, your product needs to get noticed since shoppers do not embark on a shopping spree with the intent of buying your product. Second, your product needs to be merchandised simply and clearly so it is visible, enticing, and irresistible to shoppers. Third, the location of your display is critical to driving impulse sales. If your display is placed in a high- traffic zone or near the checkout area, you will dramatically improve your chances of success. Finally, sales velocity as measured by unit sales should be your primary objective since impulse items tend to be lower priced items so you have to sell in volume to make a difference.

With these principles in mind, let’s take a quick look at 10 examples of gift and souvenir displays that are designed to drive impulse sales.

  1. Hanky Panky– What would Valentine’s Day be without a Hanky Panky thong wrapped around a rose? We created this clear acrylic display for maximum product visibility so shopper attention would be focused on the rose thong.
