It’s that time of year where people of all ages and stages are looking to find the perfect packaging and presents for their friends, family and colleagues. The boxfox team know that finding the ideal gift for people you know well (or don’t) is challenging enough, which is why we’ve compiled a line of hamper trays and packaging options to take the stress out of presenting your goodies of choice.
Whether you’re hosting Secret Santa for your entire HR department or simply have a large Italian extended family to consider, we’ve got you covered with a list of our favourite Christmas ideas which you can whip up in stylish yet convenient batches.
Home-made treats to go with display boxes
Handmade gifts are always of the highest quality — and they have the added benefit of seeming personalised, even if you don’t have an age to spend on every individual parcel.
Our gourmet display boxes and donut boxes are perfect packaging options to highlight any tasty treats which you can make yourself at home. If you’re truly strapped for time, you can even source your delectable delights from your favourite patisserie for your convenience, while also supporting local business and spreading the Christmas spirit.
Pack up a bottle of bubbles
No Christmas hamper is truly finished without a little alcoholic cheer. Whether you’re a fan of a classic bubbly or you go for something stronger, one would think it would be hard to go wrong with a beautiful bottle to open at a family or workplace celebration.
You can always customise your bottle shop selection based on the individual tastes of your recipients. Opting for a white, red, rosé or pét-nat made by a local vintner with an attractive label design is our go-to choice for brightening the mood of any Christmas party.
A little something different about your hamper
While a classic cheese spread with some tasteful preserves makes for a classic hamper that anyone will love, a hamper doesn’t have to be a standard or boring gift — no, not even if they’re prepared in bulk!
Choosing to add in a silk eye mask, aromatic diffuser or a small candle is a lovely way to add a delicate touch to any selection of goodies. Pampering and self-care products never go astray, and thoughtfully incorporating them into your collection is a nice way to bring your gift to the next level.
But if you’re looking to create a longer-lasting impression, you could include a small slate tile or set of cheese knives along with your edible options in order to remind your lucky recipient of Christmas all year round.
Finishing touches before the big day
After all the contents have been sourced and carefully set out as you like, the hampers are almost ready to go! But before you hand them over to your staff or inner circle, there are a few small things left to do:
Go for a luxury finish: There is no such thing as too much tissue paper or ribbon in the packaging world. For the ultimate luxe touch, you could even get a custom sticker with your logo or your receiver’s name to set your gift apart.
Add a card: While hampers are widely given, a well-written and kind card often makes all the difference between a present that is re-gifted and one which is cherished.
And voilà! Your Christmas is sorted, so sit back relax… and maybe open one of your hampers to spoil yourself before the big day.
