How to Choose the Best Wine Gift Packaging

May 02, 2024Sean Downs

Wines are great gifts. They never fail to amaze recipients no matter what the occasion is. However, there is an important consideration when considering giving them as a gift: their fragility.

The glass bottles that they come in can be challenging to wrap, box, or ship. The good news is that packaging suppliers like NEON eCommerce Packaging have specialised boxes for wines.

This blog post will give you tips on how to choose the best wine packaging.

The importance of the right wine packaging

The material and quality used to wrap a bottle matter due to several reasons:

Prevent Breakage

Wines are placed in glass bottles and glass is fragile. You need a rigid box that can withstand movement and pressure during transit to ensure that your bottle arrives in complete and good condition to the recipient.


When you choose a high-quality box, it creates a good impression on the customer. Even if you choose not to design your box, people will still appreciate the container because they will be seeing and touching the structure.

Information Dissemination

The wine’s origin, flavours, aging techniques, grape variety, and other important information should be clearly displayed on the box. People who buy wine, whether for gifting or personal enjoyment are always keen to know more about the liquor’s characteristics as this helps them learn more about this complex drink.

Confidence and Convenience

If you regularly ship in bulk, it’s better to use a trusted box so that you have the peace of mind of shipping this fragile item to various locations. Also, having a tried and tested cardboard box for your saves time and energy when packing them because you are already familiar with how to assemble it. With sturdy packaging, you can be confident that they won’t break even if they’re stacked on top of each other.
