Gift packaging is an age old industry that is almost as old as the tradition of giving and receiving gifts. Generally the point of gift packaging is to enhance the value of a gift and show the receiver that some thought and effort has gone into the gift. The other reason for packaging is to conceal the identity of the gift until such time that it is appropriate to open, such as Christmas day or a birthday or anniversary, maybe even a bottle of wine.
Gift packaging can come in many forms. For instance wrapping paper can be used to wrap any small gift. Bags are also often used where small items are placed inside. Boxes are also used in a similar manner. Printing on the packaging is also very important and can come in many themes such as Christmas or birthdays. Colours are also important with certain colours being very important during seasonal periods.
The gift packaging industry is also very important to the deli industry. This is an industry where goods are usually of higher value that similar goods that can be found in the supermarket. To reflect this higher value gift packaging such as deli bags are very important indeed. These can come in various colours and prints and often with windows so that the goods inside, and their labels, can be seen chosen as appropriate for the gift. Bags are also sold with specific printing. As is wrapping paper.
In this way a whole spectrum of industries are supported by the gift packaging boxes. For example, a manufacturer of wine will not often produce its own packaging that is specifically designed for bottles. Therefore the packaging industry produces such items that will house, protect, and present such items. In a similar way the specialty food industry rely on the Christmas packaging industry to produce specific theme related items such as deli bags to present their items in a sophisticated manner. Therefore, manufacturers can simply order plastic gift boxes wholesale and packaging materials to spare a lot of limited company resources.
