Gifting with Cardboard Christmas Gift Boxes

Updated on December 5, 2009

Jewelry gift boxes work well as Christmas boxes because they come in many different sizes, shapes, colors, and materials. Cardboard is probably the most popular material used in the making of boxes. Some companies have begun using recycled paper products to create boxes. Boxes made of recycled materials look identical to regular boxes and come with an eco-friendly seal. Most boxes are either colored, white, or with clear tops. Custom cardboard jewellery boxes are a great way for retail stores to place their name or brand on items that are to be sold or gifted. Custom boxes are of course more costly but they do serve as a form of advertisement for your business.

Cardboard jewelry boxes can be used for gift giving throughout the entire year and for many occasions. The boxes can also be used to gift items other than jewelry when needed. Ribbon can be added to boxes to make them more elegant and beautiful. Colored or textured ribbon can be used to depict a specific occasion or holiday when needed. It is wise to have a selection of different sizes, colors, and shapes of boxes available for when you need one. When using boxes for your business it is important to remember that most people will eventually dispose of the box and only keep the contents so it is not recommended that spend too much of your operating budget on fancy or expensive boxes.

Small Gift Boxes

Small gift boxes can be found in many different small sizes, shapes, materials, and colors. Small boxes serve many purposes including the gifting of jewelry, cupcakes, holiday cookies, and other small items. Boxes can be purchased in bulk or separately depending on your need. Some companies offer sets that include both small and large boxes. When using boxes for gift giving around Christmas time, keep in mind that in the excitement of Christmas or most other special occasions, most people do not pay much attention to how their gift arrives. The contents of the package are by far more important then the packaging.

When shopping for small cardboard boxes for your business consider purchasing the materials and assembling the boxes yourself. The use of kits is going to cut your packaging costs dramatically thus leaving you more room in your budget for the addition of custom ribbons or labels that depict your company name or brand. The use of custom cardboard boxes during Christmas time can be a great way to advertise your business at the busiest time of the year. You can find gift box kits online or at craft stores. Purchasing boxes in bulk is the best way to go especially if you know how many boxes you will need for any given project or season.

Large Gift Boxes

Large gift boxes come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, styles, colors, and materials.  Large cardboard boxes can be used during the holidays to fit large gifts or fragile gifts that require extra stuffing.  Boxes are far better than gift bags because the boxes themselves provide a valuable layer of protection.  Companies that use large boxes made of cardboard for the packaging of Christmas orders must keep in mind that extremely large or oddly shaped boxes are going to cost more to ship because they will need special accommodations. 

Large boxes can be purchased online in bulk and at a great discount when purchased in large sums.  The great thing about boxes is that you can order extra without worrying about excess numbers.  The boxes will eventually get used no matter how long it takes so purchasing in bulk is highly recommended.  Many gift box manufacturers also sell other packaging materials so the more you purchase from one company the higher your savings will be.

Wholesale Gift Boxes

Wholesale gift boxes are ideal if you like gift giving or if your business requires boxes for distribution of goods.  Christmas gift boxes come decorated or in plain white.  White boxes work for any occasion which gives you the freedom to decorate or adorn the boxes yourself.  You can find wholesale Christmas boxes at many different websites or you can purchase them directly from the manufacturer.  Boxes come in a wide array of sizes, styles, shapes, materials, and colors.  Christmas boxes usually come pre-decorated to make it easier for you during the busiest time of the year. 

Cardboard boxes are the most popular choice by many people because they are the least expensive and can be used to package almost any type of gift.  Wholesale boxes come in many sizes, shapes, styles, and colors.  Shop around online at various websites before making a purchase.  You will be surprised at the fluctuation in pricing from one place to another.  Each website is trying to get your business in a highly competitive industry.  The quality of the boxes will also vary greatly so look for customer ratings and comments before making a final decision.
