Conversation hearts add a fun, childlike feel to the sweetest
From a simpler time comes the sweet (and sometimes innocent) conversation heart.
Old-fashioned candies are all the rage again, both with today’s children and
thirty- or forty-somethings who remember the sweets from when they
were children. And since no holiday better ties together love and candy, the
conversation heart theme is one that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Provide a
selection of “heart flavored” gifts from which your customers can
choose, and you’re sure to see an increase in add-on sales as shoppers include
gifts from the heart in their holiday purchases.
