It's never too early to start thinking about Christmas, especially if you're a retailer. Getting a jump on the competition is essential to ensure your business is ready for the holiday rush. Here are four trends you need to be aware of for Christmas 2022.
Personalised gifts are all the rage these days, and that trend will only continue into the festive season. Consumers are looking for gifts that are unique and personal, so offering items that can be customised with names, messages, or other design elements will give your store an edge. Our customers love personalisation and are always developing creative ways to personalise their packaging. We offer multiple personalisation options at Foldabox, including:
As more and more consumers become aware of their shopping habits' impact on the environment, you can expect to see an increase in the demand for sustainable gifts. Gifts made from sustainable materials like bamboo, organic cotton, and recycled glass or offering fair trade and ethically sourced products are trending. Sustainable packaging options are something that you should consider as well. Read our recent blog about eco-friendly packaging, and it's impact on the environment here. Looking for sustainable packaging options, we suggest:
Mustard Yellow and Burgundy
For a more rustic look, try pairing mustard yellow with burgundy. This combination is perfect for stores that sell home goods or products with a vintage feel.
Pink and Silver
If you want your store to feel more luxe, go for a pink and silver scheme. This colour scheme is perfect for stores selling jewellery, cosmetics, or other high-end items.
Green and Brown
For a more earthy look, try using green and brown packaging. This combo is perfect for stores selling organic goods or sustainable products.
Blue and Gold
The combination of rich blues and traditional gold is perfect for a luxurious look. It works well for jewellery, luxury clothing and accessories, candles and perfume.
Ribbon is always a classic, but for 2022 we recommend using ribbon in unique ways, like wrapping it around the box instead of just tying a bow on top. We also recommend using printed ribbons which are ideal for adding a colour accent to match your brand or product colours. Ribbons are also great for complimenting a custom-printed logo on the box's lid. At Foldabox, we offer over 110 colours and designs of ribbons designed to fit our extensive and unique range of Slot Gift Boxes with Changeable Ribbon. Keep at eye out for our new range of ribbons coming soon. This collection is designed specifically for the festive season. You don’t want to miss out.
The holidays are just around the corner, so it's time to start thinking about your packaging! As you know, first impressions are everything, so you want to make sure your products are wrapped in beautiful, festive packaging that will make your customers want to buy. Start planning now for Christmas 2022 by keeping these trends in mind.
