As the festive season approaches, we share how to choose the right Christmas Carrier Bags, allowing you to showcase your gifts with both elegance and a heartwarming touch. Here is a short guide to help you make the right choice.
1. Choosing the right size
Selecting the appropriate size is crucial to ensure your gifts fit comfortably within the bag. Here are some pointers to consider.
Measure the dimensions of your gifts – width, height, and depth – to determine the suitable bag size.
Choose for a bag slightly larger than your gift to accommodate tissue paper or padding for added protection.
If you have multiple smaller gifts, consider a larger bag that can hold them all without overcrowding.
Also, avoid oversized bags to prevent items from shifting. If you are still confused on the right size, you can call our friendly customer service team to help you decide.
2. Festive designs
- Choose bags with cheerful holiday prints or colours.
- Traditional symbols like snowflakes and reindeer can add a joyful touch.
3. Handles and straps
- Select bags with strong handles for easy carrying.
- Consider options like rope handles or ribbon ties for an elegant touch.
4. Eco friendly options
- Explore reusable bags to reduce environmental impact. For example, we have the Smiling Santa Jute Bags which are long-lasting and sustainable.
- Look for bags made from recycled materials. Our Christmas Bags are made from 100% recyclable material.
- Consider customisable bags with names or messages.
- Personalised bags add a thoughtful and unique touch.
If you are considering this route, you can get in touch with our Print team who can help you with branding your bags. If you want to personalise your own Christmas Bags, then you can choose our plain or coloured paper carrier bags.
6. Quantity and budget
- Determine the number of bags you need and set a budget.
- Buying in bulk can often be more cost-effective.
- Ensure the bags are durable enough to withstand handling and transportation.
- Reinforced seams and quality construction are key.
Remember, a well-chosen carrier bag can enhance the gifting experience and spread the holiday cheer in a simple yet meaningful way.
