It’s the most happiest time of year and definitely the busiest. With retailers across the world gearing up for the rush of the festive season, it's the perfect time to start planning your retail packaging. Every year certain colour trends are revealed for Christmas. When you think about Christmas, the traditional colours that come to mind are red, green and gold. When it comes to Christmas 2021, expect twists on old favourites. “A trend that's on the up is burnished berry tones,” says Good Housekeeping's James Cunningham.

 

We’re excited to bring you some exciting colour trends for Christmas 2021

Silver is back and gold is never too far behind

British homes continue to appreciate the glory that silver and gold can offer this festive season. The muted silver tones are sure to bring the chilly, snowy outside in but be warned not to make it too icy and bring in some warmth with gold tones here and there. Here is what we have to offer when it comes to silver and gold.


Moody blues, plum purples and berry tones

Tempted to mix and match? Another festive colour trend seems to be pairing deep and dark moody tones with gold and silver for that sophisticated and classy feel. This really is shaping up to be a fantastic season. Here is our pick when it comes to a berry colour pallet.


Sustainable, earthy and nature-themed colours

According to Beth Greer, owner of Ivy&Bee Interiors, there will also be a focus on nature-themed colours. “We’re predicting this year's Christmas 2021 colour trends to have a focus on earthy, muted tones,” she explains. “Our customers are shopping more consciously with a renewed sense of appreciation for nature. We're seeing an increase in demand for artisanal decorations, gifts and tableware sourced from sustainable materials; offering an overall more sophisticated feel with softer, more natural tones.” Here are our favourite sustainable packaging options:


Accessorise and decorate

No Christmas is complete without some decorations and when it comes to decorating our boxes, we’ve got our customers covered. We have many ways to uniquely personalize each box, including:


Personalisation

Personalisation in retail increases engagement and builds a personal connection with your customers by making them feel valued and important. A great way to personalise boxes is by printing on the lid. Please visit ourPrinting Page to select the printing technique which looks right for your design. There's lots of information on the different styles and example images to help you decide.

Christmas this year is all about the moody tones, uplifting metallics and berry-toned goodness. This is the perfect time to take things up a notch and stay up to date with the latest colour trends. May your festive season be filled with happiness, health and luxury packaging that will add a special dimension and meaning to Christmas.
