At this festive time of year, businesses go all out to entice customers into their stores. There are many ways to get people walking through those shop doors, but one of the best is to put up a Christmas window display, and the more appealing to the eye, the better. Here are 12 of the most enchanting Christmas window displays we’ve come across.
1. Letters To Santa
The Anthropologie store in New York is known for its interesting and imaginative festive window displays, and this ‘Christmas tree’ shaped from letters to Santa is no exception.
2. Christmas Rams?
Another eye-catching window display from Anthropologie. This time the store went for the rather unusual choice of a ‘tree’ made from a pyramid of rams. Not an animal people associate with Christmas, but hey, it’s unique, you’ve got to give it that.
3. Christmas Tree Mannequin
This clever twist on the traditional Christmas tree was created by adding artificial tree sections to a simple wire dress frame. The effect is stunning! A real work of art.
4. Gingerbread Tree
With gingerbread houses, people and snowflakes, this is the perfect festive decoration for any bakery window.
5. Made With Merchandise
When putting together a display, some stores wisely choose to work with their own merchandise. This Christmas tree and snowmen are made entirely from wallpaper. What better way to advertise your product?
6. Tied Together
Speaking of working with what you’ve got, this Brooks Brothers Christmas tree made from ties is sublime.
7. Nothing Fancy
This display at the Tren-D store in Disney World is clever and creative, capturing the simpler qualities of the festive season that are, unfortunately, often lacking nowadays.
8. Shabby Chic
9. Parceled Up
These carefully arranged Christmas parcels make for a lovely window display. They’re simple, colourful, and all at once make you think of buying (or receiving) prezzies!
10. Weird and Wonderful
The Christmas window display of Bergdorf Goodman in New York is rather surreal. You may well find yourself having nightmares about it for weeks to come.
11. Twelve Drummers Drumming
This window display is more traditional than many of the other examples on this list, depicting a line from the well known Christmas carol The Twelve Days of Christmas.
12. Window Dress(ing)
Yet another inspired entry from those masters of the Christmas window display, Anthropologie.
