Christmas gift box packaging ideas

How you package your Christmas favor box is just as important as what you put into your gift box. This is where your creativity and crafting skills can really shine. Personalized gift boxes show your guests that you put extra effort into Christmas gifts this year.

Christmas boxes can be packaged in items like Christmas tins, Christmas bags, and Christmas baskets or offered simple, as they are. Favor boxes packaging ideas can be as simple or extravagant as you want. Christmas tins are a great Christmas treat boxes container idea because they come in a variety of sizes and designs that anyone would love to receive! You can also package Christmas treats into Christmas bags, create your own unique design for the top of the box, or use empty cans from Christmas candy to create Christmas treat boxes.

You can also design your own special Christmas goodie boxes toppers or use spice jars you already have around the house as a way of recycling old items into new uses!

Treat boxes can also be packaged in Christmas baskets! You can choose to create your own Christmas basket out of simple materials like wicker or pinecones or use pre-made Christmas containers found at home décor stores.

Your imagination is really the only limit when it comes to what you can choose to package Christmas gift boxes in. Christmas is the time of year where creativity and family come together for a special Christmas experience that will be remembered forever!

What supplies do I need to make my box?

This simple box requires just a few supplies:

  • cardstock or cardboard
  • home printer with color ink
  • scissors

If you want a larger size box you will need to print out the larger boxes files. Then glue them together at the base, so you’ll also need a bit of glue in addition to the above supplies.

When attaching the flaps together on your DIY gift boxes you can use some ribbon or twine.

What do I put in the Christmas treat box?

After printing out and assembling my printable box template, it’s time to decide what Christmas treats you will put inside your unique gift box! This is the best part because this way everyone’s favorite Christmas specialties can be included, and no one will go home with leftovers.

You may want to consider Christmas candy like chocolate-covered strawberries, peppermint bark, or red and white m&m’s that are perfect for Christmas. Christmas cookie recipes are also a great Christmas treat box idea! You can include your favorite Christmas cookies that you have baked. Or buy some from the grocery store bakery department and package them up for everyone to enjoy during their special Christmas day celebrations.

Everyone has their own favorite treats for Christmas. There are no right or wrong treats in my opinion. The holidays are a great time to indulge in some delicious treats that you may not always eat all year long. Here are some possible Christmas treats you can make.

What is traditionally in Christmas treat boxes?

Traditionally Christmas treat boxes are filled with Christmas candy, Christmas cookies, Christmas brownies or bars, and even Christmas fruitcake!

Christmas fruitcake is a Christmas classic for many people, but it can be too sweet and rich for some. You may want to consider making Christmas brownies or bars which are delicious with the addition of white chocolate chips!

But you do not have to follow traditional Christmas treats when packaging up your Christmas treat boxes. Christmas is a time where everyone can get creative and have fun with Christmas treats!
