"It's all in the
packaging," is a creed some people swear by. Some gifts look
more valuable than other same-priced gifts when they have
the perfect packaging. Now more than ever, it has become
trendy to give gifts in swirled ribbons, customized gift
sacks, impressionable wrapping, and logo branded boxes.
Gifts wrapped together in a basket and accessorized with
fresh flowers and fruits are also quite ‘in vogue’ lately.
Not only that, the brand and good name of the gift company
that make and deliver the gifts say a lot about your gifts
and your good intentions.
Some of the packaging trends that we have observed of
late are :

materials such as nettings, raffia, satin, natural fiber
with different grades of wrapping paper.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I add special
flair to my gift for a special festive occasion? I have been
sending this special someone the same thing all the time
previously and I want to try something different now.
Try colors and
materials that are "outside the box".
While many of us think of traditional colors like red
for Chinese New Year or green shades for Hari Raya, the sky
is truly the limit when it comes to wrapping gifts and
preparing cards. For many gift givers, the paper, bows and
envelopes are an extension of their own personal style. Is
hot pink and pale green really OK for Christmas? If that's a
favorite color combination - then why not?
You've no doubt put a lot of time and energy into choosing a
gift that reflects the interests and tastes of the person
receiving the gift. All of that effort is even more personal
when you consider the presentation. Trendy, classic,
artistic, eclectic - throw yourself into those papers and
bows and a make a great gift truly extraordinary. To be
extra sure, you may also want to let a reputable gift
company to handle your gift giving exercise.
Explore packaging that
reflects a gift's theme.
When you've selected a gift specifically for a decorator,
gourmet, artist, sports enthusiast or movie buff, it's
always fun to wrap your gift to match the theme. Wrap the
decorator's gift in wallpaper with a paintbrush tied onto
the bow or arrange the cook's gifts in a fancy mixing bowl
with a specialty whisk.
Sometimes it's the message that makes a special gift.
You've done the hard work of selecting the best gift company
to prepare and deliver your gifts. You shouldn’t put that
effort into waste by letting the gift being delivered with a
monotonous message such as “Happy Birthday”, “Happy
Valentine” or “Congratulation on your new baby”. . Add some
personal touch by making your message personal and
meaningful. Some gift companies can give you advice on the
message but you should add more mileage by constructing your
own message which is only known to you.
