2017 Christmas Trends: Here's what to look out for

We can hardly believe it ourselves but it’s that time of year again; the Christmas decorations are out, the Christmas markets are starting soon and everyone is planning their festive season shopping. If you’re a retailer with goods to sell over the holidays, it’s important that your packaging is also oozing festive cheer. We’ve compiled a list of the some of the most festive trends this Christmas season and be assured, that Foldabox has amazing boxes for each of those trends.


This simple, country living style will continue to be a huge seller. Popular elements include galvanized metals, distressed wood, cotton, rustic, natural fabrics and eco-friendly designs. So many colours work with the farmhouse theme including red, green, ivory and brown, but our favourite is definitely the Natural Kraft boxes. Natural kraft is the perfect retail gift packaging solution for natural skincare and beauty products, organic and specialty gourmet foods.


While you can find snow and icy crystals every year, 2017 will bring new emphasis on icicles, snowflakes and snowy white animals. White bark, flocked trees and greenery, and Santas dressed in fur are just a few of the things you will see in this theme. If the crystal theme is what you’re after, our signature Pearl Silver Grey Gift Boxes will be ideal. These gorgeous boxes have a beautiful pearlescent matt finish throughout. Perfect retail gift and hamper packaging for gourmet goods, luxury clothing, ceramics, wedding gifts and small soft furnishings or corporate merchandise.


The Santas of 2017 give a nod to the Santas of the past. Vintage and vintage-looking Santas will be a big trend – think about the old Father Christmas or St. Nicholas types. Vintage-looking sleighs are also a great add to this theme and no matter what anyone says, Santa is always associated with the colour red. Our signature Red Pearl gift boxes offer the ultimate in luxury presentation gift and retail packaging. A deep, rich red with a beautiful pearlescent matt finish throughout and perfectly matching red grosgrain ribbon.

There are so many ways that you can use our boxes this Festive season, and all our gift boxes are available from stock. They fold completely flat for minimal storage, designed to make your life easier but with no compromise on quality. The ultimate in beautiful quality retail gift packaging.
