Maximise the impact of your packaging this Christmas

Christmas Packaging

As a business owner, Christmas is one of the biggest commercial opportunities of the year. It’s important to get your Christmas packaging right and to source wholesale Xmas gift packaging from a reliable supplier.

DID YOU KNOW: 62% of UK online businesses prepare for Christmas ordering as early as August.

Why is Christmas Packaging important?

Businesses are under huge pressure to make sure their customer service is unrivalled during the festive period and consumers expect their products to be packaged and delivered to the highest standard. So, it’s vital to get the range of Christmas packaging you use right.

Choosing the wrong packaging for your products, or working with the wrong packaging supplier, can hinder your businesses reputation.

Consumers who receive faulty and damaged packaging are less likely to purchase again and can even end up leaving negative reviews online. This can badly damage your brand reputation.

As a small business, this can have a detrimental effect on your business success.

That’s why it’s crucial that businesses work with a Christmas packaging supplier you can trust, to ensure you maximise the impact of your packaging and make sure that you source and purchase wholesale Xmas gift packaging from a reliable, good quality supplier.

Important factors to consider before purchasing Christmas packaging

Is your wholesale Xmas gift packaging durable and strong enough to tackle the journey?

Whether your parcels are being transported from a factory to shop shelves or will be loaded on a van and sent halfway across the country this Christmas, it’s really important to think about the journey your Christmas packaging will be making before designing or purchasing.

Do you know how strong your wholesale Xmas packaging material is?

The weaker the Christmas packaging, the more likely it is to get damaged in transit. We know that corrugated cardboards durability outperforms many other packaging materials.

Unlike many other packaging suppliers, we give our customers the freedom to customise their Christmas packaging. This can act as a strong marketing advantage for their brand and public relations activities.

Have you maximised the festive unboxing experience for your customers?

If you're not already familiar with the unboxing experience, we can assure you that you're missing out on a major marketing opportunity.

Unboxing is HUGE right now.

The unboxing experience is when shoppers open up a package, take out what’s inside, and in some cases, record the moment and share it on social media.

Christmas packaging presents a perfect opportunity to build positive momentum around your unboxing experiences.

It’s a huge opportunity for you to stand out with a custom and personalised experience, which can result in increasing your online presence.

Have you thought about customer touchpoints?

According to Reuters, Christmas related online spending from 1st November to December 31st, 2022, totalled £23.5 billion. For the same period in 2023, spend is expected to rise to £24.1 billion pounds.

It’s important that E-commerce business owners think about the journey your Christmas packaging will take, starting from a customer taking action online to goods arriving at your customer's doorstep.

For most E-commerce businesses, when your customers receive their goods, this could be their first physical touchpoint. Therefore, this is your time to shine and make their Christmas packaging experience as memorable as possible.

Is your wholesale Xmas gift packaging on brand?


Christmas packaging should not be underestimated as a powerful marketing and branding tool. It's really important to think about the way your packaging looks as well as how it protects your goods.
