What Are Some Interesting Packaging Ideas For Christmas?

At the end of every year, a big opportunity arises for businesses – the Christmas festivities. 

With many customers looking to splurge on gifts for family, friends, and even for themselves, the onus is on companies to stand out and attract as much of this spending as possible. 

And with this in mind, every business, whether it’s an e-commerce or a brick and mortar store, goes all out to attract as many customers as possible. 

So, what can you do to give your business an edge? How do you stand out from your competition? 

One way to stand out is to use special packaging celebrating Christmas and the essence of this holiday. 

To help you with that, here are some of the best packaging ideas you can use for your products this Christmas.

  • Use Christmas colours
  • Incorporate animal themes into your packaging
  • A little embossing goes a long way
  • Surprise your customers

Use Christmas Colours 

While this might seem like a cliché idea, it still works. Christmas is universally celebrated in red and green. 

Christmas lights, trees, and even ornaments all bear the green and red colour schemes. 

You can creatively infuse these traditional Christmas colours into your package in a cost-effective yet celebratory manner. 

Even if you are not interested in creating a whole new design, adding these colours in a small part of your package will make a clear statement that you are celebrating the festivities with customers.

If you are interested and willing to create a new package for your products, you should consider combining the Christmas colours with black and gold. 

Black infuses simplicity into your package while gold helps the package exude luxury. Done right, combing these colours will help you stand out.

Incorporate Animal Themes And Images Into your Packaging

If you sell items related to kids, you should consider celebrating Christmas with them by incorporating animals into your packaging. 

And since it is Christmas, animals associated with the story of Santa will be more effective at helping your products stand out. 

Therefore, use animals such as reindeer, penguins, polar bears, etc. You can add an Australian touch and feel by incorporating candles into your package artwork.

A Little Embossing Goes A Long Way

Embossing is a printing method that creates a 3D effect on the surface of hard packages such as boxes. 

As a printing technique, embossing yields an eye-catching visual that makes your brand stand out. 

During the Christmas period, you can help your brand stand out by embossing your brand name and message, giving your products a premium feel. 

This will help your brand stand out, especially in the luxury market.

Surprise Your Customers

The Christmas spirit is about uplifting and sharing all that is good. 

With that in mind, you can consider creating a surprising and fun package that will not only make people happy but make the experience memorable. 

For instance, a business can print a handwritten note from the owner of the company wishing customers a Merry Christmas. 

You can include a funny and mood-lifting text on the package. Add paper or wood wool filler in the package, to mimic a manger. 

The point is, surprise your customer and break away from the monotony of your regular package.


There are many ways you can stand out during the festivities. Some are simple and effective and while others are over-the-top and memorable. 

Whichever route a business chooses, it is essential to make an effort to stand out during the Christmas period. 

With every company try to take advantage of the Christmas spending, do not be left behind.
