Giving gifts is one of life’s great joys. Watching someone’s eyes light up when they open a present specially picked out or made just for them is magical. But you can take that excitement to the next level by putting your gifts in decorative or custom boxes.
These special boxes add flair and personality to your gifts, making them stand out. As soon as the recipient spots that vibrant box under the tree or on the table at their birthday party, their intrigue and anticipation will go through the roof.
When you give the unique gift of a one-of-a-kind box, you also provide the priceless gifts of thoughtfulness, effort, and love. Let’s explore all the ins and outs of decorative and custom gift boxes so you can start enhancing your gifts today.
Decorative and custom gift boxes breathe new life into gift presentations. That plain brown shipping box won’t cut it for your special someone. Instead, a box with pizzazz shows you cared enough to find or create a container tailored just for them.
These artsy boxes also allow you to match the container to the item inside. A colorful jewelry box for your sister. A robot-themed box for your techy nephew’s gadget. Everything clicks when the box aligns with the gift and the receiver’s personality.
Don’t underestimate the power of a beautiful box sitting wrapped under the tree or on display at a celebration. The pretty patterns, unique shapes, and luxurious textures make your present pop. It becomes an eye-catching highlight of any gift display.
Now that you see why creatively packaged presents put smiles on faces, let’s explore some box varieties to spark your inspiration.
Fully customized boxes allow you to design to your wildest dreams. Choose your colors, patterns, textures, and dimensions – go crazy. Add logos, photos, inspirational quotes, and jokes. You name it.
Many online sites let you fully design and print high-quality gift boxes with no fuss. For corporate gifting and weddings, custom makes memorable keepsakes. And for perfectionists like me, who get giddy over details? A custom gift box is a pure joy.
If traditional wrapping bores you, shake things up with geometric cube boxes. Their graphic shape looks fantastic on display. You can decorate all sides with colors and designs, too. Cube boxes maximize decorating space, with five or six sides to deck out instead of four. You can pick a different color or pattern for each side or cover all sides coordinately.
When you spot an oversized gift box, the curiosity is immediate. What could be inside such an enormous box? Extra large boxes build excitement and leave quite the impression.
Plus, the gift inside has got to be equally as impressive to require such a substantial container, right? Oversized boxes lend themselves perfectly to giving big-ticket items, major milestone gifts, or presents related to significant life events.
The “Go big or go home” motto applies. Large boxes make small gifts look lonely by comparison, so save the most enormous boxes for your biggest gifts or occasions. Then, watch eyes pop when the giant box gets unveiled.
For an instant style upgrade, decorate your gift boxes with ribbons. Available in every color and texture under the sun, ribbons infuse gifts with softness and sheen.
Ribbons liven up plain cardboard shipping boxes affordably. But they look equally fabulous tied atop custom-decorated gift boxes, complementing patterns and colors.
Get creative tying ribbons in giant bows or flowing trails. Many companies sell pre-made bows in every size to stick on gift boxes, even if your bow-tying skills aren’t excellent.
The decorative and custom box possibilities are endless, but such freedom can also feel overwhelming. Here are helpful tips for styling the perfect gift boxes:
Match colors and patterns to gifting occasions. Holiday motifs for Christmas, pretty pastels for bridal showers, neon colors for kids’ birthdays. Use recipient hobbies and personalities as inspiration, too. Know their favorite sports team? Rep those colors.
Use prints and textures reflecting the gift recipient’s personality. Florals and butterflies for nature lovers. Plaids, polka dots, or animal prints for the fashionistas. Keep it sleek and modern for the minimalists.
Complement gift boxes and wrapping paper by echoing colors and textures. But they don’t need to match 100%. Go for an attractive, coordinated ensemble – not uniforms.
Finish with a gorgeous ribbon in a complementary color. Then, artfully tie, twist, or loop it, adding that final pinch of style. Voila – easy gift box gorgeousness.
Are you convinced to try designer gift boxes? Here are prime gifting occasions to start your custom container journey:
Say yes to custom boxes for weddings. Bridal patterns beautifully present bridesmaid boxes for jewelry sets. Bulk boxes with the couple’s portrait are perfect for holding guest welcome bag goodies.
For the wedding party, white boxes edged with gold paint, and ribbons keep their thank-you gifts coordinated. However you customize, recipients will feel the love.
Nothing makes a birthday feel more monumental than opening larger-than-life custom boxes. Use oversized packaging for milestone ages like 13, 16, 18, 21, 30, 40, 50, and 60 to make those big days feel even more significant.
Custom holiday gift boxes infuse cheer under the tree and at celebrations. Sparkly snowflake and plaid prints set winter gifts aglow. Extend love among families and friends with printed photo boxes of past gatherings. Or keep holiday exchanges festive with to/from gift tags tied onto berry red or forest green containers.
Businesses constantly look for memorable swag to gift employees, clients, or event attendees. This is where custom-printed boxes shine.
Sleek corporate gifting calls for simple yet modern custom boxes featuring your logo and brand colors on every side. VIP clients love receiving gifts reflecting a company’s image and values.
If you are hosting a big corporate party, design vibrant decorative boxes covered in fun textures and photos from the event. These make awesome take-home favors or prizes contest winners love displaying.
