2. A Gift for me and a Gift for You

Many companies, like Nordstrom, offer special add-ons or free samples so their customers can treat themselves while they shop for their loved ones. These kinds of incentives not only support brand loyalty but introduce new products to the consumer. Plus, free gifts usually come with a few terms and conditions. If you are looking to push product sales, you can require shoppers to spend a certain amount to achieve their freebie.

3. A Decorative Surprise
