Inexpensive and Fun

Christmas is always an expensive time of year, and the cost-of-living crisis has compounded it this year. Many people are looking for ways to cut back this Christmas whilst keeping Christmas fun, festive, and full of magic. Christmas packaging is one area where you can easily reduce spending whilst making your gifts look magical!
 Utilise Inexpensive Packaging

Packaging for gifts doesn’t have to be expensive, and there are many ways to make presents look fantastic whilst sticking to a budget.

  • Tissue paper is cheap, looks great and is usually fully recyclable
  • Newspaper used as gift wrap and finished with festive and colourful ribbons is super eco-friendly and looks fabulous. Save the ribbons for next year too
  • Pillow boxes make gifts look fantastic and are reusable. They also keep items safe, ensuring they get to the recipient in one piece
  • Get creative and head outdoors to see what things in nature you could use for decorating gift packages. Dried leaves, fir branches, twigs and berries all look amazing added to parcels, bags, or boxes, and of course, they’re free


 Buy Durable Packaging that can Be Reused

  • All the items are eco-friendly, solid, and durable, so they can be reused. Best of all? They’re 40% cheaper when purchased in a bundle than they would be if purchased separately
  • It goes without saying that if you can’t reuse packaging, you should recycle as much as possible. Most of our packaging is recyclable, contains no plastic and comes from Forest Stewardship Council-certified material


 Get Creative with Decoration

There are ways to keep costs down when decorating packages but still provide the wow factor.

  • Decorate boxes or gift bags with low-cost organza ribbon. Tie the ribbon into pretty bows, fun knots, or other decorative effects
  • Use kraft wrapping paper and draw designs directly onto the paper. This is an enjoyable activity for children and ensures your wrapping paper will be unique
  • Make use of old Christmas tree baubles by adding them to boxes, parcels, or gift bags. Tie them with organza ribbon, and they’ll look fun and fabulous
  • If you’ve still got last year’s Christmas cards in a drawer or box somewhere, you can reuse them for gift tags this year. Cut the designs from the front of Christmas cards, write a lovely message, and attach them to your gifts with ribbon for a luxe look on a budget
