‘Tis the season of giving, and we have all the Christmas gift box essentials you need to spoil your friends and family this holiday season. There’s no better way to show appreciation than to fill a box with affordable holiday gifts that your friends and family will love. So, let’s get creative with the help of The Crazy Store.
Santa’s Giftbox Workshop
Christmas is just around the corner, and if you’re anything like us, you’re reeling with excitement. While everyone sticks to the same old traditional gifts, turn your gift into something unique.
First things first, you’ll want to decide on a gift box. You can simply purchase either a classic gift box or create a DIY version. Creating your own gift box can be loads of fun! This is also the perfect opportunity to get kids involved and excited to share gifts with their loved ones.
Stocking Stuffers With a Twist
So you’re probably thinking, “Hmm… what to put in a gift box for a friend?” We’re here to help. Naturally, everyone has their own interests, meaning that all your gift boxes will have different types of gifts. Here are some ideas that might put you on the right track:
For the bookworm:
You cannot go wrong with a classic novel you know they love. Throw in a pair of fluffy socks and a much-needed reading light, and you’re halfway there. Maybe add a puzzle book as a twist and finish it off with some of their favourite sweets and a personalised bookmark.
The fitness buff:
These are some of the easiest people to create gift boxes for. Simply throw in a gym towel and some workout equipment you think they’d enjoy, like a resistance band, skipping rope or a multi-purpose toner. Then simply fill up the empty spaces with some protein bars. Tadaa!
For them, the first gift is always sunscreen - let’s keep them safe in the sun! From there comes the fun stuff: a cool pair of sunglasses, some classic adventure snacks like nuts and fruit rolls and finally a water bottle to keep them hydrated.
The artsy crafties:
Much like those who are into fitness, artsy crafties are also pretty easy when it comes to gifting. You can’t go wrong with some cool markers to start off with. Throw in a few random trinkets like googly eyes and a few different coloured ribbons. And finally, end off with a range of different arts and crafts products.
These are only a few of the many ways you can go with your gift boxes. When you’re creating them for a child, throw in a bunch of their favourite things to play with and even add an activity book for their entertainment. There is so much exploring you can do with these gift boxes.
Fill in the Gaps
Finding a few bigger gifts for your gift boxes might be easy, but filling in the tiny gaps might be more of a challenge.
Our go-to solution would be to fill them with sweet things: candies, marshmallows, lollipops and more. Or, for those without a serious sweet tooth, perhaps a few small accessories, such as rings, a bracelet or a cute necklace. Socks are also always a win.
If you’re feeling sentimental, add a personalised note, a few pictures of you and your loved ones or even a trinket that will take them down memory lane. Sentimental gifts are always better than expensive gifts; they really do tug on the heartstrings!
Wrap it up!
The final step is to wrap it all up and put a bow on it! Your friends and family members will surely love every gift in your crazy gift box.
