Gifting is never just a gesture- it is in fact a bundle of emotions, joy, love, and respect that you have for the other person. Such gestures also show how much value you have for that person in your life, thus making this a tradition that connects hearts together. The pressure to choose the right gift is always equally important and constant but what comes with it is how you choose to present it. The main object/gift may hold space and could be of major importance but the way it is presented is what makes the best of first impressions.
The ever-changing world of creativity brings new forms of gifting and packaging styles almost every now and then. The game is not just restricted to gifts wrapped in sparkly gift sheets and a ribbon but has majorly transformed into sheet-less packaging and presented with additional props as decor to make the gift/hamper more attractive and sweet.
At Fluorescent Studios, we believe creativity knows no limits and therefore your hampers too should be unique in an unlimited number of ways. We have compiled a list of our favorites from the ‘Out-of-the-Box’ packaging styles and we hope you find one that resonates with your personal style and gifting purpose.
CUSTOM NAME HAMPERS
As the name itself suggests- there is nothing better than adding a personal touch to your gift for the person you're gifting it to. Seeing their name on the top of a box gives them a feeling of ownership and belongingness. Customization of the name differentiates the gift from the general category of gifting and adds more meaning to it. You can get the name of the person you’re gifting it to, a code word that only you two know and means a lot to you, or a line that resonates with the equation you have with that person- such customizations are very meaningful and heartfelt for both the giver and the receiver.
WHEN IN DOUBT, BASKET IT
There is no better way to go ‘out-of-the-box’ than to go for a basket style for packaging. A basket adds a lot more space to add more items and gives a chance for you to present your gift more openly and casually. The best part about it is that you don't have to spend a lot of your time on the decorations- a simple ribbon and artificial flowers would do the right job for you. Baskets look very pretty and you can get them in a wide range of sizes and shapes making them more flexible for whichever gift you are going for. A tip here is to keep multiple gift items, that way you add a lot more tiny meaningful gift items rather than just sticking with one.
Why go for the typical square or rectangular shape when you can have much more variety and options you can choose from like we said- creativity knows no limits. Whatever the centric theme of your gift- you can decide to make the hamper/gift packaging similar to that style or have it the other way around. The real fun is when the gift is totally different and unexpected from what you'd expect it to be from how it's packed. This leads to the building up of curiosity and thus more fun. You can choose to go for a totally different shape from the original idea, wrap it in a silk cloth- keep it simple but chic, or take it the standard way- small gifts packed in one huge box.
ACCESSORIZE IT WITH FABRIC
When you’re confused about the kind of packaging you want to go for, fabric packaging is your calling! With the abundance of fabric material available in the market, anyone can choose the right find for them. You can opt for traditionally printed fabrics for festive gifts or choose silk cloth to keep it casual and alluring. You can even choose the prints of your choice like floral, check, or hand-painted, depending on the vibe of your gift.
You can be eco-friendly and choose to make your packaging itself a part of the gift. Pack all your gift items in a cute jute bag, handbag, or tote bag, and surprise them with this unique idea of packaging. This idea is very different and is also very beneficial for the environment since you’re not using any extra packaging and boxes, henceforth hitting two birds with one stone.
With these many options, we are sure you can find one that works best for you. The main thing you need to remember is that gifting is not about how grand it is, it is ALWAYS the gesture that counts.
