People are out Christmas shopping earlier and earlier each year, so retailers are getting decorations and displays out earlier and earlier, too. So join the fun! Build a couple of Christmas displays now and send us photos. You’ll provide early shoppers opportunities to beat the rush and you could win a lot of gift products.

We’ll enter your photos into the CBA gift-merchandising contest, Inspiring Customers With Gift-Shopping Experiences. A winner will receive all the products presented in the UNITE 2017 gift merchandising workshop, valued at more than $1,500 wholesale, plus two nights stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center during UNITE 2018 in Nashville.

Be creative with merchandising that connects with customers during this special time of year and inspires them to give a gift of faith. Create gift-giving solutions with cross-category selections that match the gift recipient’s lifestyle, life stage, or life interests.

Make it traditional or make it goofy, but engage people with solid design principles and you could take home your own gifts!

Send photos to and include your name, store name, and contact info by Nov. 17 to be entered in the contest. Merchandising professionals will select the winner.
