Where did the summer go? It seems only yesterday we were ditching the foreign holidays and basking in glorious sunshine; marvelling even, at the fact global warming may have finally have seen fit to visit our lovely Isles.
But now, as the leaves begin to turn red, orange and brown, we look to a new season; and a beautiful one at that. It may seem an obvious choice, but for gift packaging and hamper making design – we take our inspiration from the ‘earthy tones’ of nature itself. What follows is a collection of seasonal gift ideas taken from our recently published Autumn/Winter Gift & Hamper collection. We hope it inspires and helps you find new ways to increase profit this season.
Gifting is not all about huge lavish hampers; some of the more delicately challenged amongst us might be silently rejoicing at that novel revelation. Turning smaller items, like a jar of preserves, some fine oils, chocolates or a bottle of red wine into a gift, can be just as profitable too. Our specially selected Autumn collection of gift packaging includes jute bags, and gift boxes, cake boxes, muffin boxes and gift trays that don’t cost the earth, and they work with almost every season the weather throws at us. Fill them with decadent shreds, and then complete your look with something as simple as our beautiful baker’s twine or decorative ribbons and gift tags.
And your colour scheme this season? Earthy jute, carafe brown, acai and samba reds, along with all the colours that suggest produce that is wholesome and organic – perfect this time of year. Here’s some we’ve made up, and as always – we love to see your creations, and there’s no end to where you can show them off.
