When people think of Christmas presents, they usually have images of wrapping paper instead of gift bags, but gift bags are catching on in a big way, and it isn’t hard to see why. Here are just a few reasons why customers tend to love them.
Easier to Use
Wrapping one or two presents isn’t such a tough task, but Christmas usually involves giving more than just a couple. Unfortunately, wrapping presents for all your friends and family can be a real chore, and you can’t add anything else in or check you peeled off the price without taking all the wrapping off. A gift bag keeps things festive but makes packaging gifts far easier.
People shopping during the festive period often end up carrying plenty of gifts at once. By providing them with a gift bag, you’ll make it easier to tote things around while they complete the rest of the Christmas shop. That might seem like a relatively minor gesture, but it’s one your customers will appreciate.
Easy to Reuse
Most people simply rip wrapping paper apart to get at what’s inside. Even if you’re careful enough to painstakingly remove all the tape instead of making tears, it’s still quite tough to reuse wrapping paper. In contrast, gift bags can be kept for next year and used again multiple times. This isn’t just convenient for customers – it also helps the environment by cutting down on wasted paper.
Gift bags are the perfect chance for some branding. Of course, you don’t want to go overboard by focusing on your business more than the Christmas period, but this is still a nice opportunity to create bags with a unique look, and even the smallest mention of your business can help people associate it with the pleasure of giving and receiving presents.
