Select small gifts

  • Look for small items that perfectly match the theme of the gift and that you know will delight the recipient.
  • Think of tasty candies or chocolates that are the recipient's favorites.
  • Choose a fragrant candle in a pleasant scent, such as vanilla or lavender.
  • Consider other fun gadgets, such as a funny keychain, a cute notebook or a beautiful plant for the desk.

By carefully selecting small gifts that match the recipient's theme and personal preferences, you can give a thoughtful and personal gift that they will really enjoy!


Add a personal touch

Write a handwritten card or note to add a personal message to the gift box. Choose a nice card or paper and grab a pen. Start by thanking the recipient for their friendship or for something special they did for you. Write a personal message that suits the occasion or the gift you have selected. Be sincere and show your feelings. Place the note on top of the gift box so that it is the first thing visible when the recipient opens it. Adding this personal touch is sure to be appreciated by the recipient and make the gift extra special.


Pack the surprises

Choose beautiful packaging that matches the theme of your gift box. For example, use colorful gift packaging, an elegant gift box or a festive bag. Make sure the packaging is big enough to fit all the surprises.

Decorate the packaging with ribbons, stickers or other decorative materials. Choose matching colors and designs that complement the contents of the gift box. Use ribbons to make a beautiful bow or stick playful stickers on the packaging for a personal touch. Make sure that the decorations are securely attached so that your gift box looks festive and all the surprises stay in place.


Arrange the items in the gift box

Place the little surprises in the box in an attractive way. Arrange them carefully, for example by placing smaller items on top and using larger items as a base. Make sure each item is clearly visible by arranging them alternately and in layers. Don't forget to add some filler material to hold the items in place and give them a fuller look.

When you place the items in the gift box, keep the recipient in mind. Think about the order in which the items will be seen when the box is opened. Use colors, shapes and textures to create an attractive presentation that piques the recipient's curiosity. Let the items come together in a harmonious way in the box, so that opening the box becomes a festive and surprising experience.


Adding extras

  • Add confetti: Sprinkle a handful of festive confetti in the gift box for a playful effect. Choose colors that suit the occasion, such as gold and silver for an anniversary or pastel colors for a baby gift.
  • Use flowers as decoration: Place a small bouquet of flowers in the gift box to add a touch of elegance. Roses are perfect for a romantic gift, while sunflowers create a sunny and cheerful atmosphere.
  • Other decorative elements: Consider adding other decorative elements such as ribbons, mini flags or glitter accents. These details can make the gift box even more personal and enhance the festive feeling.

Give free rein to your creativity and experiment with different extras to make the gift box unique and festive!


Finishing and shipping

Check that everything is properly packaged before sending the gift box. Please ensure all items are packed securely and securely to prevent damage during transit. If necessary, add a ribbon or sticker for an extra beautiful finish. Send the gift box with care and attention. Choose a reliable and fast shipping option to ensure that the package arrives to the recipient on time and undamaged. If necessary, hand deliver the package to the post office to ensure that it is processed properly.
