The holiday season is fast approaching, and with it comes the joy of decorating, gifting, and celebrating with loved ones. The importance of packaging during this festive season cannot be overstated. It is a time when brands and businesses have a unique opportunity to create lasting impressions, convey their appreciation to customers, and make their products stand out. As we look ahead to Christmas 2023, let's take a look at some of the trending colours and how you can use this to create unique and personalised packaging solutions for your brand. Do you already have your boxes and wonder if this still applies to you? We encourage you to continue reading to discover various products to personalise your existing gift boxes in a matter of seconds (yes, seconds).

Metallic Elegance



Metallics have always been a timeless Christmas colour trend, and we can safely say that it is here to stay. According toHouse Beautiful, the three metallic hues that will dominate the scene are Metallic Gold, Bronze, and Champagne. These opulent shades bring a sense of grandeur and sophistication to any holiday celebration. Metallic Gold is a rich, warm shade that exudes luxury and tradition, bronze adds a touch of earthiness and champagne brings a touch of elegance to the season. These metallics embody the spirit of giving and festivity, making them a staple colour for Christmas packaging.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

When it comes to Metallics, you will find such a wide range of options from Foldabox that it’s too many to list them all. However, if you are looking to really impress your customers this year, we suggest a combination of our newly launched Tissue Paper and FAB Sides® Panels. We encourage you to play around with different options. Thinking of adding Metallic Gold FAB Sides® onto a Black Box or maybe the Xmas Mistletoe FAB Sides® onto a Bronze Box? Go for it. FAB Sides® provide the ultimate flexibility to create on-demand yet unique festive packaging solutions with minimal investment and risk.

Copper's Warm Glow

Copper, with its warm and inviting tones, continues to make its mark in the Christmas colour palette. This year, expect to see this striking colour used in various decorative elements, including packaging. Copper complements both traditional and modern holiday themes, making it a versatile choice for businesses aiming to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

Silver Shimmer


Silver has always been a staple in Christmas decorating, and itremains a prominent choice this year too. Silver adds a touch of glamour to any packaging design, and we have many Silver options for you this year. Our favourite, however, is definitely the combination of Silver Tissue Paper with our Metallic Silver FAB Sides®. During the Festive Season, silver compliments almost all colours. You could use the Silver Tissue Paper with any of our boxes.

Black and White



If you love monochromatic colour schemes, then you could never go wrong with the classic combination of black and white. Whether it’s black on black, black on white, or a pop of colour using our Tissue Paper, these colour combinations are definitely going to impress your customers.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

Vibrant Brights



For those looking to make a bold statement during the holiday season, bright and vivacious colours like teal, orange, lime green, and bright pink will be trending, according to Elle. These hues break away from tradition and bring a modern twist to the Christmas palette, appealing to a younger and more adventurous audience. Here are some suggestions for vibrant hues this festive season:

Teal: Teal embodies the tranquillity of the sea and the vibrancy of the tropics. It evokes a sense of freshness and energy that can infuse your packaging with life.

Orange: The warmth and cheerfulness of orange make it an excellent choice for creating a festive and inviting atmosphere. It's also a colour that symbolises enthusiasm and joy.

Lime Green: Lime green radiates positivity and energy. It's a bold colour choice that can breathe life into your holiday packaging.

Bright Pink: Pink may not be the most traditional Christmas colour, but it can add a playful and whimsical touch to your designs. It's perfect for those who want to stand out from the crowd.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

Cool Winter Hues

In contrast to the vibrant brights, Christmas 2023 will also feature cooler tones, such as pale ice blue, mint, and sage. These colours invoke a sense of tranquillity and harmony, creating a serene backdrop for the festivities.

Pale Ice Blue: This serene shade captures the essence of a winter wonderland, creating a calming and peaceful atmosphere. It's perfect for businesses aiming to evoke the magic of a snowy holiday season.

Mint/Sage: These soft and muted greens are reminiscent of evergreen foliage, symbolising growth and renewal. They provide a balanced and timeless touch to your holiday packaging.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

Hunter Green


According to Woman and Home, this trend is green in all senses of the word. Focussed on sustainability and eco-friendly design choices, it celebrates the natural beauty of the lesser-decorated Christmas tree. We have various options in the colour to choose from, including themed ribbons to really take your personalisation up a level.

Our Foldabox Recommendations:

Eco-Friendly Sustainability 


Eco-friendly packaging is not just about being trendy, but it’s important for our environment as well. Sustainable packaging, however, is anything but dull. We have the best options for customers looking for a more natural look and feel this Christmas. Our Natural Kraft boxes work incredibly well with our Woodland Friends ribbon collection; pair it with Kraft Tissue Paper, Seafoam Green Tissue Paper and/or the Sage Green FAB Sides®, and you’ve got yourself a winning combination.
