Ordinary Gift Box Design in General

The gift box is just a box. The only different thing is the sticker design, the design of selecting and combining thematic colors, and the ornaments added to the box to beautify its appearance.

Lots of people provide gift box design templates on the internet or social media. You can contact them to make a design for you. You can also negotiate to customize the design to suit the type of gift that will be included in it.

If you are an anti-mainstream person, you can combine striking colors to create a bold impression. Most box designs only use the basic color of cardboard, namely light brown, even though you can also make a breakthrough by creating a combination of colors that have never been seen before.

Chocolate Gift Box

Another example is chocolate. Most chocolates are rectangular in shape, of course, this is easier to wrap and arrange in a box. But you have to pay attention to the placement and also the decorative elements, make sure that all the elements support each other, not make the combination look bad.

Several designs from chocolate brands have different color themes, some use the dominant color brown, others dominantly red, purple, and so on. So what you can do is create a sticker design with a color that matches the basic color of the chocolate brand design you choose.

The cardboard box's primary color is brown. Pay attention to sticker placement, ensuring a balanced and visually appealing composition. This is what makes your chocolate gift box look attractive and will make the person receiving the gift even happier.

The color combinations used are usually not too many, just two colors, dark and light brown, which are quite good and attractive.

Chocolate is also very suitable for many occasions, it can be included in the wedding segment, Valentine's Day, graduation celebrations, birthdays, and several other occasions.

Creating a Music Box Gift

Gifts vary based on the occasion and the recipient's preferences. Some people like food, some like antiques, and some like music. Moreover, music is a universal language so of course, almost no one doesn't like music.

This is what makes music box gift so popular. We encountered many of them when we were small, where we found many classical music brains that played lullabies when opened. Not a few people are still interested in music boxes even when they are adults, you might even be able to find an old music box that is still stored at your grandfather's or parent's house. This means that a gift in the form of a music box is timeless.

The gift in the music box can be a miniature musical instrument that looks real and beautiful. The choice of type of musical instrument that will be included in the music box must also be considered. Consider the recipient's preferences; do they enjoy piano music? If yes, then you can choose a music box with a miniature piano instrument.

Another innovation related to music boxes is using miniatures or action figures of artists or singers. Consider creating a music box featuring miniature members of your friend's favorite band, like Linkin Park. When opened, it plays the band's popular tunes. Isn't this a very good idea?

How to Wrap a Gift Box?


How to gift wrap a box? To do this, as discussed previously, you must first determine the type of item you will put in the gift box. After that, you will know the size and can determine what size box is suitable.

You need to remember that the shape of a box with angled sides is quite complicated and makes it difficult to work with. Wrapping will require several defining elements. Say, when you want to include a gift in the form of a drink or syrup bottle, of course, you have to choose a box that is high enough. Then to ensure safety so that it doesn't break, you can use cloth fibers or long wood fibers with an aesthetic appearance.

You have to remember that apart from paying attention to the safety of the goods, you also pay attention to the aesthetic side which is the essence of the gift box itself.
