A celebration is always around the corner. The holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, achievements all seem to creep up out of nowhere. You may have found the perfect gift for that special someone in your life but you forgot one thing, how will you be presenting it? A jewelry gift box can sometimes be just as important as the jewelry itself. If you don’t believe me try giving your next gift wrapped up in a crumbled newspaper secured with a generous amount of duct tape. Good luck with that.
The perfect jewelry gift box depends on the gift and the occasion. There are countless choices when it comes to material, quality, price and design. A quick online search will generate thousands of results. Lucky for you, we’re here to help. We’ll break down the most common jewelry gift box types and benefits of each. So let’s jump right in.
Cotton Filled Cardboard Gift Boxes
Cotton filled cardboard gift boxes are usually the cheapest and easiest. A few dollars will get you about two dozen boxes to save for future occasions. They come in multiple colors, the most common being black, white, teal and a brown kraft. They also come in multiple sizes to accommodate any type of jewelry. Paper gift boxes are ideal for small inexpensive gifts. These boxes usually come with a piece of white cotton so anything you put in it will likely move around which could damage the jewelry. Paper gift boxes are perfect for crafters and resellers. They’re lightweight but sturdy enough to hold up during shipping.
Velvet Gift Boxes
The classic and traditional velvet gift box is a step up from paper gift boxes. Velvet boxes keep your jewelry safe from scratches but don’t offer much in terms of style. Colors are limited to mainly black or red without much differentiation in design. Velvet jewelry boxes are elegant and classic but if you’re looking for something modern with more pop try a leather gift box.
Leather Gift Boxes
Leather gift boxes come in all different sizes and colors. The most common design is the Cartier style box which is usually a red box with gold accents along the edges. Leather gift boxes are great for men or women. A minimal leather gift box with a matte finish is the perfect complement for a men’s watch. Leather boxes range in price with faux leather being the cheapest. A leather jewelry box is great for any occasion. You won’t be disappointed.
Wood Gift Boxes
Last but not least are wood gift boxes. Wood jewelry boxes are my personal favorite. Get one in your hands and you’ll feel the heavy, sturdy and superior quality of a wood jewelry box. Although more expensive than the others on this list, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. Wood boxes have various options in build, finish and color. If you’re the DIY type I’d recommend making your own. Make your gift extra special by making a personalized box for your loved one. Whatever you choose to go with JPI Display is here to help.
