Tips for creating your own Christmas gift boxes

It’s almost the season to be jolly, and what better way to prepare for the holidays than by creating your very own Christmas gift boxes? Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just stepping into the world of festive crafting, we’ve got some great tips to bring the magic.

Selecting the right bits & bobs for your Christmas gift boxes

Before we dive into the glitter and glue, let’s play detective. Who is the lucky recipient of your Christmas gift boxes? Are they a fitness fanatic, a foodie or a spa-loving soul? Knowing your giftee’s passions and preferences is the first step to curating a gift box that will light up their day.

Gifts perfect for Christmas gift bags and boxes

Fitness freaks will love the walkmate waist pack, allowing the ease of getting out and about without worrying about lack of pockets. Or try the waffle microfibre sports towel with a handy zip pocket to secure loose items like keys or phones.   

Those who love a bit of TLC will swoon over a spa-themed gift box. Think smelly shower steamers, spa chill globes and a dry body brush for them to glow radiance throughout the holidays. 

For the outdoorsy type, a double walled sparkling flute will surely bring a cheeky smile to your giftee. Our colourful sand free towel will definitely be a winner as it’s quick drying, plus it comes in a mesh compact carry bag to easily fit in your gift bag.


Choosing the right box, bag or basket for your gifts

Now that you’ve assembled the perfect assortment of goodies, it’s time to choose the vessel for your Christmas magic. You’ve got options galore, but selecting the right container can elevate your gifts from “nice” to “wow”! 

Boxes offer a clean and organised look with the option to be customised if you feel extra creative. A colourful seagrass basket is ideal for creating a rustic and cozy feeling, not to mention it can hold an assortment of goodies and doubles up as a useful gift on its own. Or opt for fun Santa sacks to add another element of surprise. Choose a bag that matches your giftee’s personality and theme of your gifts. 


Choosing the right filling for your Christmas gift set

After choosing the perfect container, it’s time to think about what goes inside it. No, we’re not talking about gifts. We’re talking about fillers! This is where you can get a bit more creative.

Tissue paper is classic and versatile, which adds a touch of sophistication to your gift box. There is a range of colours available that will complement your overall theme. Alternatively, opt for eco-friendly paper shreds. This is perfect for cushioning more fragile items while still adding a pop of colour to your arrangement. 

If you’re feeling extra crafty, consider using fabric scraps or festive tea towels like our Linen Merry Xmas as a filler or as wrapping. It adds a personal touch and it’s reusable!

So there you have it. With a bit of imagination and some carefully selected items, you’re well on your way to becoming the master of Christmas gift boxes
