The basics of Christmas packaging

Deciding on whether a particular Christmas product is right for you depends on your business and your target audience. 

Firstly, will your customers appreciate a Christmas-themed product? 

The type of industries that seasonal packaging works for are industries in which novelty items just make sense. For example, in the pet industry, we know seasonal pet treats or toys do really well at Christmas.

In the confectionery industry, sweets and chocolate will go down a treat in a Christmas-themed pouch or bag.

Take the best of the bunch and let it inspire you

Creating Christmas packaging doesn’t need to be over complicated. This is especially true if you work with a packaging supplier such as Law Print! We’ve seen a lot of projects over the years, so if you’re looking for some inspiration, we can point you in the direction of past projects we’ve worked on. 

We have a page dedicated to past projects, so you can browse and gain inspiration!

Taking inspiration from other brands that have done Christmas packaging before you is also a great way to assess what your competitors are doing and can help you be prepared for next time.
