Maximize Holiday Sales With Packaging

Published On: December 15, 2016


Retailers and manufacturers love the holiday season – and with good reason! The National Retail Federation reports that the holiday season represents up to 30% of total annual sales for many retailers. Appealing holiday packaging is a key component in maximizing profits during the holiday season. Premium holiday packaging – when done right – can dramatically ramp up sales during this critical buying season. The look, tactile appeal, and design are key factors in inspiring a purchase.

Here’s how brands can maximize retail sales this holiday season:

Holiday Edition Exclusive Packaging

Holiday Inspired Product Packaging

Exclusive holiday packaging is a long-established strategy for driving higher numbers of product sales in retail outlets. Special packaging created specifically for the holiday season makes a product more tempting. The holiday packaging should reflect your brand and mission, and create the impression of quality and exclusivity. Foil effects, embossing, and special coatings can make a product stand out heads above the rest.

Gift-Ready Packaging



Gift-ready packaging is an option that can be exceptionally appealing to busy shoppers – the gift, whether wine and spirits, health and beauty products, electronics, or other product, provide the added advantage of gift-ready packaging. Creating gift-ready packaging brings higher value for shoppers, many of whom may be searching for last minute gifts – you give them a product that will make their lives simpler.

Gift-with-Purchase Sets

Gift-with-purchase sets appeal to holiday shoppers who appreciate getting more out of their holiday shopping budgets. Using special packaging with attractive added gifts is a great strategy for driving higher sales during the holiday season – and introducing new products for the coming year. The buyer may keep and try the product, gift it, or use small size products as stocking stuffers. When the holidays roll around, the added value of a gift-with-purchase can fuel sales.
