So, Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and in my experience, it is a very short lived holiday! There are loads of ways of making a loved- up display without it costing the earth. Besides the obvious of pulling all red, white and pink together (along with anything and everything with a heart on it!) we can use our Wild Olive stock too!
Last year taught me a valuable lesson (after over buying and over estimating!) that Valentine’s Day has become more of a ‘gesture gift’ that an elaborate display of affection! So this year, I kept it simple; keep it under £10 and keep it pretty!
Wild Olive Valentine Options
Here in Buxton, I grouped any red, pink, white or floral bath melts together (eg Tuberose, Rose Geranium, Pomegranate and Strawberry) and popped them in small cellophane bags tied with alternate red, pink and cream curling ribbons. This makes it super easy for customers to grab just one or two for a gorgeous romantic bath and also quicker for you on busy days when you’re all fingers and thumbs!
I also changed the colour scheme on my bath melt stand to fit in with my Valentine’s theme! Keeping it all themed colours help draw your eye to them and help shoppers get the idea of giving their loved one an egg box full of floral bath goodies!
This look can also be achieved with a glass bowl full of pink and white Bath Tea Bags. Retailing at just £1.75, they almost never buy just the one!
The boxed small and large glass, soy wax candles also make a gorgeous Valentine’s gift, particularly in Rose or Strawberry and Champagne. I popped a lit candle in a heart shaped holder in our shop to show how pretty it can look and how scrummy it can smell!
We also offer Valentine’s specific gifts; the super cute Valentine’s Tea Bag pouch (contains 2 Tuberose & Jasmine tea bags with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’ on the front label with a lovely heart pattern. RRP 4.50) and the Limited Edition ‘With Love’ bath melt collection which comes in a lovely display box ( this makes the ideal gift for men to grab and go!) which retails at £14.50. These products will really set you apart from all of your competitors and your customers will love how seasonal they are.

I hope you all have a great Valentine’s trade!
