As we approach World Chocolate Day on the 7th of July, it’s the perfect time to think about how to present your chocolate creations in the most appealing way. The right packaging not only protects the delicate confections inside but also enhances their appeal, creating a memorable experience for the recipient. At Foldabox, we offer a range of luxurious packaging options designed to elevate your chocolates to the next level. Our luxury folding gift boxes are the perfect packaging solution for handmade chocolates, fudge, macarons, shortbread biscuits, decorated cookies and retro sweets or confectionery.

The psychology of colour in packaging

Colour plays a crucial role in packaging design, influencing consumer perceptions and emotions. Each colour evokes different feelings and associations, which can be strategically used to enhance the appeal of your product.

  • Bronze: Symbolising warmth, richness, and sophistication, bronze is an excellent choice for chocolate packaging. Its deep, chocolate-brown hue resonates with the colour of cocoa, creating an instant connection to the product inside. Bronze packaging exudes luxury and indulgence, making it perfect for premium chocolate gifts. At Foldabox, our Bronze Boxes pair beautifully with copper and green ribbons, adding a touch of elegance and a hint of nature, which complements the earthy tones of the chocolate.

  • White: Representing purity, simplicity, and cleanliness, white packaging conveys a sense of premium quality and sophistication. White boxes are versatile and can be easily personalised with a variety of ribbon colours to match your brand or occasion. The minimalist aesthetic of white packaging allows the focus to remain on the chocolates, enhancing their visual appeal and making them stand out.

  • Ivory: Ivory, with its soft and creamy hue, embodies elegance and luxury. It is less stark than white but still conveys a sense of sophistication and timelessness. Ivory packaging is ideal for special occasions and gifts, offering a subtle and refined presentation. Personalising ivory boxes with ribbons in contrasting colours, such as deep red or gold, adds a festive and celebratory touch.

Our Bronze Boxes are a standout choice for World Chocolate Day. The rich chocolate brown colour not only mirrors the product inside but also invokes feelings of warmth and indulgence. When paired with copper or green ribbons, these boxes take on a sophisticated yet natural look, perfect for showcasing high-quality chocolates.

The deep, inviting hue of bronze is associated with earthiness and reliability, making it an excellent choice for brands that want to emphasise the natural and premium quality of their chocolates. The metallic sheen of the bronze adds a touch of luxury, creating a sense of anticipation and excitement as the recipient opens the box. Our Bronze boxes are available in 3 different sizes including A4, A5 and XL all with changeable ribbons. View the collection here.

Personalisation is key to creating a memorable unboxing experience. At Foldabox, we offer a variety of ribbon colours and styles to complement our boxes. Whether you choose bronze, white, or ivory boxes, adding a personalised ribbon can enhance the overall presentation and make your chocolates stand out.

  • Ribbons for Bronze Boxes: Copper and green ribbons are the perfect match for our bronze boxes. The copper ribbon adds a metallic gleam that enhances the luxurious feel, while the green ribbon introduces a natural, earthy element that resonates with the origins of chocolate.

  • Ribbons for White Boxes: With white boxes, the possibilities are endless. Choose bold colours like red or blue for a striking contrast, or opt for pastel shades like pink or lavender for a softer, more romantic look. Gold and silver ribbons can add a touch of glamour and festivity, perfect for special occasions.

  • Ribbons for Ivory Boxes: For ivory boxes, consider deep, rich colours like burgundy, navy, or forest green to create a sophisticated and elegant presentation. Alternatively, gold or champagne ribbons can enhance the luxurious feel of the ivory packaging, making it ideal for upscale chocolate gifts.


At Foldabox, we understand the importance of presentation in making your chocolates stand out. Explore our collection and discover how our luxurious packaging options can elevate your chocolate gifts this World Chocolate Day.
