Gift and Holiday Packaging Ideas
When it comes to gift-giving, people always say it's the thought that
counts. This is true, but a little packaging boost during the holiday
season can do wonders for your business.
Christmas represents a time of good cheer and celebration, and studies show that brands that evoke the same festive emotions in their products and promotions get more customer engagement.
This season is the perfect opportunity for businesses to stand out and boost end-of-year sales, and holiday packaging can help achieve those goals.
Holiday printing doesn't have to be expensive. To give you some inspiration, we've compiled eight of the best holiday packaging ideas to spruce up your gift and product offerings, no matter what your budget.
8 Ways to Customize Your Gift and Holiday Packaging
Custom Gift Boxes
Holiday boxes offer endless packaging possibilities.
Mail your customer's online orders in a Christmas-themed mailer box. Adding festive patterns and a custom message to your packaging can increase the perceived value of your brand and enhance the customer experience.
You can also create a box that contains multiple products and market them as gift sets. This method works best for art supplies, beauty cosmetics, and sample products. Ready-to-gift packaging is popular during the holidays because customers are too busy for tedious gift-wrapping.
Stickers and Labels
If custom boxes are not an option, try budget-friendly stickers
and labels. This is a common way for brands to decorate packaging
without breaking the bank. Instead of box printing, apply a
sticker of your logo on the packaging.
Even better, you can print Christmas stickers and include them as freebies. Try designing a holiday version of your logo and festive iconography on a sticker sheet. You get the added exposure if one of your clients decides to apply your logo on their personal items.
Also known as box sleeves or belly band packaging, packaging
sleeves make it easy to brand your merchandise. Wrap the printed
paper around the item, tape the ends together, and you've got
yourself a polished holiday presentation.
Packaging sleeves work on any product shape and dimensions. Box sleeves are a versatile and affordable packaging solution for your business, whether it's a kraft box, a plastic container, a rolled-up t-shirt, or a pair of fluffy socks.
Custom packaging tape adds a touch of festive branding to large cargo and shipping boxes. It is water-activated and adheres permanently once applied, keeping your packages safe during deliveries. You can design holiday prints and variations of your logo, so customers instantly recognize your brand when the package arrives.
Custom gift bags are great alternatives to boxes when packing customer purchases. Print a unique design for the holidays, and we guarantee you'll give your brand a boost! Even after the purchase, customers can keep reusing your brand and get your logo noticed wherever they go.
Custom Wrapping Paper
Go the extra mile and print custom wrapping paper to personalize every present. If your store offers gift-wrapping services, you can still promote your brand by printing wrapping paper with your logo. This is also an ideal option for corporate gifts because it reinforces your company’s messaging.
Brand your products with custom hang tags that double as gift tags. These provide plenty of space to print your holiday message in front while adding a personalized touch at the back. You can print them in different shapes, sizes, and finishes. Hang tag printing can also serve as personal business cards that your customers can conveniently keep.
Custom Tissue Paper
An effective way to add some luxury to your product presentations. You can line your paper bags' bottom and sides with branded tissue paper for that ready-to-gift element. If you're using custom boxes, you can wrap the products inside the tissue paper and seal them with a Christmas label or sticker. These simple adjustments can upgrade any product.
