Cute Christmas packaging ideas

Here's a few simple but effective packaging & gift ideas for Christmas


Soap tied with bakers twine and a thank you stickers are nice little thank you gifts. 
My daughter will be giving these as teacher gifts this year.

And how's this for super easy - a chocolate bar dressed as a snowman. These would be cute for the kids to give their friends.

I love this idea using block bottom kraft paper bags and turning them into reindeer.

Or how about snowmen using white bags or Christmas trees from green bags

There are heaps of ideas around for 'gifts in a jar' but I think this is one of my favourites ... the pamper jar. These ones contain fluffy socks, bubble bath, lip balm, hand cream and chocolate.

If you're giving cookies as gifts we've got some lovely boxes
or how about recycling some Pringle containers

And these are sure to bring a smile ... Oreo Elf feet!

And here's some lovely sets which contain everything you need to package homemade sweet treats, jams & pickles to give as gifts.

These Christmas house themed cupcake boxes are super cute! You could also fill them with homemade truffles or fudge. Or how about little soaps or bath bombs.

Little favour boxes are a sweet way to package small items such as jewellery. They are also nice filled with a few chocolates as gifts for clients - thanks to a local beauty therapist for this idea who just purchased lots of these to make up as little thank you gifts for her customers :0)

This looks like a really simple & effective way to wrap presents


And here's a fun way to decorate bottles of beer or any any other bottles you're giving as a gift
