8 May 2018 The Spirit of Christmas Even though it may almost be summer, it’s never too soon to start thinking about your Christmas packaging – if you haven’t already done so. While there is plenty of traditional red and green packaging, paired with the collection of ribbons that we seem to accumulate over the Christmas period, the innovation seen over this time truly brings something special to the table. Whether you chose to reinvent your branding for the Christmas season, or add a simple but effective element to your existing packaging, the possibilities are endless. Rather than talking about Christmas past, let’s visit Christmas packaging past. Gin Baubles In the true spirit of Christmas, Sipsmith Gin decided to embody the saying “good things come in small packages”. The concept was one of elegance and simplicity, designed to bring Sipsmith’s quintessential expression of a classic London dry gin, in miniature form, to your Christmas tree. The design of the gin bauble bottles allows Sipsmith to keep their branding, while adding a simple but festive ribbon to smaller bottles of their London dry gin. The small ribbon used to attach the bottles to the Christmas tree is also in Sipsmith’s signature deep green and gold colours. Despite looking pristine and delicate in the display box, these miniature Sipsmith London dry gin bottles looked even better hanging from Christmas tree branches. Considering the 15,000 units of alcohol that Britons consume during the festive season, these Christmas gin bottle baubles make an effective and thoughtful present, too. Bottle Neck Wreaths As a homage to Christmas decor in the more traditional sense, Eden Mill opted for a naturalistic holly wreath for their Christmas packaging embellishment. This is not only eye-catching, but also plays well with the existing branded look that Eden Mill gin is known for. While it seems like a simple addition, it presents a Christmas theme in a minimalistic style without deterring from the product’s original branding design. The wreath was made from plastic and paper materials to create a semi-realistic aesthetic. While this product’s predominant purpose is as an alcoholic beverage, the Christmas themed addition is attractive enough to be repurposed as festive decor.
