What Christmas music to play in store?

Christmas Music

I spend a lot of time talking about music and its impact on your customers emotions. Of all the seasons, no music is more powerful than Christmas music at pulling on our heart strings!

There is more to Christmas music than “Now That’s What I Call Christmas”.   Look to communicate some style and differentiate yourself from the competition.

Christmas Music Ideas

I have pulled together some of my favourite Spotify Playlists below.  This should be a welcome break from Slade!  NB: You will need a version of Spotify to hear these, basic version is free.  You can then source the music from whatever platform or store you wish to use.

Retail Christmas: This playlist is perfect for retail.  A few classics and must haves, but lots of fresh interpretations of Christmas songs from current and recognisable voices to give your store a unique feel.

Jazzy Christmas: Want to feel upmarket, but not expensive.  Very chic and stylish feel to Christmas shopping with this playlist. Cool jazzy tracks from Diana Krall, Harry Connick Jr, Dean Martin plus more contemporary swing artists.  Suit a mature retail environment.

Christmas Cocktails: Some jazz, swing, and a touch of gentle rock and roll.  An cool and eclectic collection of Christmas tracks to give your store a sophisticated feel.  Ideal for a gift shop perhaps.

Soulful Christmas: Ok so the jazz a bit old skool for you?  Here’s a collection from Mark J Blige, Mary Mary & Toni Braxton to name a few.  These sensual and soulful tracks are perfect for laid back stores, beauty treatments & gifts.

Bohemian Christmas:  Super cool collection for bearded store owners and trendy coffee houses that want a modern feel to their collection of Christmas tunes.  8 hrs long, so no repeats during the day either!

Divine Christmas:  One for the ladies perhaps.  Classics done by classy vocalists.   Great for a store that wants its woman to indulge.

Acoustic Christmas: Stripped back versions, with delicate and sumptuous vocals.  Perfect for a coffee shops & fashion stores houses.

Christmas Blues:  So you need a bit more guitar for your store?  No problem here’s a bluesy Christmas mix for you.  A bit of old and more recent White Stripes versions of popular favourites.  A few new tracks too, which is refreshing.

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party:  Ermm difficult to describe this playlist.  Certainly would give your store a very unique feel.  Uber trendy, so can only be pulled off if you and your store are also uber cool!!
