When you buy a gift , what is the factor that is the most important to you? The gift itself? The price? The brand? Whether the recipient will love it or not? All these factors are indeed very important. However there is one factor that I’m sure never came to your mind. The factor is the gift box. Now you must be thinking why is the gift box important? It’s the gift itself that counts. Well I can explain why. The gift box itself offers you benefits that you never thought of and the gift box you send through can impact the response of the recipient receiving the gift.
When It comes to gift boxes there two that are the most popular and widely used. One is the cardboard boxes while the other is transparent boxes. These boxes are made of plastic. However only one is superior to the other and offers more benefits. I will explain to you why transparent boxes are better.
Drawbacks of Cardboard boxes
Cardboard boxes are quite light and cheap. They are the most commonly used packaging so they are available pretty much everywhere and you can easily get your hands on one.
The benefits they offer you are cheapness, wide availability and numerous different sizes they come in to suit your needs. However cardboard boxes have their disadvantages. These drawbacks nullify the advantages they offer and make cardboard boxes not worth buying even with their cheapness.

Imagine the horror when you send a gift and it arrives in an ugly and damaged packaging. It will ruin the entire appeal of the gift even If the gift you picked was perfect.
Another drawback is that due to their fragility they don’t protect your gift. You gift can easily get damaged in a cardboard box especially if you send expensive and fragile gifts like cell phones. And due to their lack of transparency you won’t even notice the damage.
