What Does Your Holiday Gift Packaging Say About You?

Christmas is less than a month away! Here at Great Little Box, we’ve been busy doing our own holiday gift packaging to prepare for our annual GLBC Children’s Holiday Party. Our very own, Robert Meggy, President and CEO of Great Little Box, still personally goes out shopping for the children and wraps the presents himself, a tradition he’s carried on for 30 years.

For some, holiday gift wrapping is a time to turn on the festive music, sip a craft beer (maybe out of a Snowcase), and put their craft skills to use. For others, they couldn’t be bothered with the taping, cutting, tucking and everything that entails making a perfect package. For us, we love any kind of packaging, that’s why we do it all year-round!

At GLBC, we like to think of ourselves as the perfectionist – since packaging is the name of our game. What is your holiday gift packaging style? Tweet us or share a photo of your holiday gift packaging on our Facebook page.
