Modern Christmas Boxes for Gifts

May 02, 2024Sean Downs

One occasion that brings out the artist in all of us is Christmas. Some people believe that there’s no such thing as going overboard with Christmas decorations. The same goes for gift boxes used during the holiday season.

If you want to add some flair to your Christmas gift boxes and give as much holiday cheer as possible, here are some ideas for modern present boxes for the holidays. 

Festive Ways to Decorate Your Gift Boxes for Christmas

Christmas Card Cover

There are two ways to achieve this, either you have a Christmas card design printed on the cover or you make your own. Your Christmas card design can include a thoughtful message thanking your customers for supporting you throughout the year. Another idea is to put a Christmas-inspired company slogan that emphasises your brand values and identity while still giving holiday cheer. 


A holiday celebration is not complete without a charcuterie board. Help your loved ones, clients and business partners set up a fantastic grazing board by sending them a gift box containing special meats, cheese, and crackers that can be paired with different kinds of wine. 

You can design your box with a picture of a beautifully arranged charcuterie that will serve as the cover and inspiration on how they can arrange their own.

Healthy Breakfast Options

We all know that the Yuletide season is loaded with sweets, high-carbohydrate, and high-sodium food. You can put together a box filled with whole wheat bread, sugar-free jams, and some vegan items like mixed nuts or almond milk. It’s a subtle reminder that you can enjoy this season while still caring for your health. 

You can include a funny quote on the cover reminding them to enjoy the season but to stay healthy. 


You can create snowflakes by cutting patterns on paper. If you want a matte finish, you can use coloured construction paper but if you want something shiny, you can use metallic foil instead. 

There are many downloadable templates that you can use as a guide for cutting out snowflake patterns. Another option is to watch YouTube tutorials on how to fold and cut paper or foil to get this particular shape.

Reindeers and Elves

If there are any icons closely associated with Christmas, it would be no other than reindeer and elves! They are in almost every decoration set that adorns homes, offices, and shopping centres.

If your product hampers are intended for families or children, you can consider printing cute reindeer and elves on the cover. The good thing is that there are many art styles for these characters so you can choose the best artistic interpretation that will resonate with your target audience. 

How NEON Packaging’s CMYK Printing can Upgrade your Gift Box

The CMYK acronym stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Key (Black). These four colours used in the printing process are highly preferred because, when combined during printing, they provide the most vibrant and accurate colours. 

Here at NEON, we use this printing method to bring out the best in our premium magnetic gift boxes. They have a semi-matte finish that allows the ink to do its magic and give a vibrant printing result to the outer and inner sides of the lid. 

With six box colours to choose from, we can guarantee that your Christmas present box will be anything but boring. To make it more impressive, we recommend using our Acid-free Tissue Paper or the Diamond Protect Hex Wrap.

The Acid-free Tissue Paper adds an artful aspect to your gift’s presentation while the Diamond Protect Hex Wrap ensures that the contents are protected from scratches, bumps, and breaks. 


Embracing creativity in Christmas gift packaging can elevate the joy of giving during the holiday season. Whether it's incorporating festive themes like snowflakes, reindeer, or elves, or opting for practical yet thoughtful choices like healthy breakfast options, the possibilities are endless. 

Moreover, leveraging advanced printing techniques such as CMYK printing offered by companies like NEON can add a vibrant touch to gift boxes, ensuring they stand out under the Christmas tree. By combining innovative design with quality materials, you can make your presents truly memorable and spread the spirit of the season with every gift exchanged.
