 Tips for Creating the Perfect Gift Box, NZ Lavender Farm, Lavender Backyard Garden


When you're searching for that special gift, whether it's a birthday, Valentine's Day, or Christmas, a custom gift box is a timeless choice. Tailoring a gift box to suit the recipient's preferences can result in a meaningful and thoughtful present. Here's a detailed guide on how to craft the perfect personalized gift box.

1. Choose a theme

Since you are at a lavender website, you are probably looking for a purple, nice smelling gift box. Choosing a theme helps you to decide which products the gift receiver will love. A few themes are:

Relaxation: Opt for the Relaxation theme when you want to help your loved one unwind and de-stress. Consider including lavender massage oil and Epsom bath salts for a spa-like experience.

An example of our ready-made Relaxation Gift Box.


Sleep Well: Create a Sleep Well-themed gift box with lavender pillow mist, sleep balm, and a soothing lavender and chamomile herbal tea. This theme is perfect for promoting restful sleep.

Skin and Beauty: For those who enjoy self-care and pampering, the Skin and Beauty theme is ideal. Include lavender hand cream, soft skin lotion, body oil, lip balm, and a rejuvenating lavender hand sugar scrub.

An example of our ready-made Skin & Beauty Gift Box.


    Bath and Body: Pamper your recipient with a Bath and Body-themed gift box. This spa-inspired selection can feature lavender artisan handmade soap, bath bombs, Epsom bath salts, creamy bath melts, and an invigorating after-shower body mist.

    An example of our ready-made Bath & Body Gift Box.


    Aromatherapy: Craft an Aromatherapy-themed gift box for those who appreciate the soothing and aromatic qualities of lavender. Include lavender essential oil and an essential oil candle to elevate their space.

      Tasty Fine Food: Delight the taste buds with the Tasty Fine Food theme. Explore lavender-infused delights like blueberry jams with a hint of lavender for a unique culinary experience.

      2. Set a budget range

      Deciding on a budget is a crucial step in curating your gift box. Determining how much you want to spend (e.g., $60) will guide your product choices and help you stay within your financial plan.

      3. Consider Size

      It's important to choose a gift box size that accommodates the items you plan to include. Overstuffing a box can lead to difficulties in arranging and closing it properly. However, our largest gift box offers ample space for an array of lavender goodies, ensuring a delightful and generous presentation. 

      However, our largest size gift box should be enough for you to fill in lots of lavender goodies. 

      So far, all of this probably seems like a lot of work, if you don't have as much time you could always just choose one of our ready made, special, luxurious lavender gift boxes that will make a perfect gift. Pick your gift box from our Lavender Gift Box Collection.

      4. Decoration and visual sense

      Enhance the visual appeal of your gift box with carefully selected decorative elements. In each of our Build Your Own gift boxes, we include a small bundle of dried lavender flowers. This not only adds visual charm but also imparts a delightful lavender fragrance when the recipient opens the box. To further elevate the presentation, consider including a charming purple lavender sachet with multiple uses, from drawers to bags. For an extra touch of purple, the Luxury Satin Lavender Sachet Bag is a beautiful choice.

      5. Make it meaningful

      To add a heartfelt touch, include a lavender-themed card with a special note. During checkout, there is a dedicated section where you can include your message. If you don't see this option, feel free to reach out via email, and our staff will ensure that your personalized note is written and added to the gift box.

      Crafting the perfect personalized gift box is a creative and thoughtful way to express your appreciation and care for your loved ones. Whether you choose to assemble your own custom gift box or opt for one of our ready-made, luxurious lavender gift boxes, the recipient is sure to be delighted by the lavender-infused experience you've crafted just for them. Explore our Lavender Gift Box Collection to discover the ideal lavender-themed gifts.
