3 gift box tips you need to know

Choose the best size box for the number of items.

If your box looks sparce, with too much space between gifts and goodies, pick a smaller box that’s better for the collection. The opposite is true when there’s too much overlap. If the collection appears crowded, you need a larger box.

Brown paper on the bottom isn’t always required.

Sometimes adding a cushion of shred or curled wood shavings beneath the gifts is good enough. At other times adding crushed brown paper (also known as Kraft paper) is necessary to elevate items when the box is deep. Experimentation is needed to determine the best appearance.

Color matching pleases the eye.

It’s wonderful when all gifts have similar color within the packaging, but this isn’t always possible. When packaging contains multiple colors, add a one-color shred that balances the mix. Choose the shred color that best complements the overall design.
