The Art of Creating Your Own Gift Box: A Personalized Gesture.

Gift-giving is a beautiful way to express love, appreciation, and gratitude. While we at Little Gift Box take great pride in offering you beautifully curated & locally made gifts, creating a personalised gift box adds a touch of thoughtfulness and uniqueness to your gesture. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the process of creating your own gift box, allowing you to tailor it specifically to the recipient's tastes and interests. Get ready to embark on a journey of creating a memorable and heartfelt gift!

1. Choose a Theme:

Selecting a theme for your gift box helps set the tone and creates a cohesive experience. Consider the recipient's hobbies, interests, or something they've mentioned recently. It could be a self-care box, a favourite footy team (GO WEST COAST EAGLES!), a coffee lover's box, a bookworm box, or even a pampering spa box. The possibilities are endless – just let your creativity flow.

2. Pick the Perfect Container:

Find a suitable container to hold your gifts. It could be a decorative box, a basket, a mason jar, or even a personalized tote bag. The container itself can add an extra touch of charm and become a lasting keepsake.

3. Include Thoughtful Gifts:

Think about the recipient's preferences and fill the gift box with items that cater to their interests. This could include their favorite snacks, a luxurious bath bomb, a scented candle, a handwritten note, a personalized piece of jewelry, or a captivating book. Tailor each gift to evoke joy and thoughtfulness.

4. Add Personalized Touches:

To make your gift box even more special, include personalized touches. Add a handwritten letter or a heartfelt card expressing your feelings. You can also incorporate customized elements such as monogrammed items, engraved jewelry, or even a playlist of their favorite songs.

5. Pay Attention to Presentation:

Presentation is key when it comes to creating a memorable gift box. Arrange the items beautifully, using tissue paper, colorful shredded paper, or crinkle cut fillers to add visual appeal. Consider using ribbons, twine, or decorative tape to secure everything in place and provide an extra decorative touch. Think of a game of Tetris when placing your items in the box. Try not to leave unequal open spaces.

6. Don't Forget the Finishing Touches:

The final step is to add those finishing touches that make the gift box truly special. Consider adding a local, dried flower to the ribbon (we love the "Pussy Tails" that grow wild down at the Albany beaches), a spritz of their favorite perfume, or a small handwritten note with care instructions for any delicate items. Remembering the small details goes a long way in showing your thoughtfulness.


Creating your own gift box allows you to craft a unique and personalized gesture that will surely make the recipient feel cherished. The effort and care put into selecting meaningful items, choosing a theme, and wrapping everything with love will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression. So, the next time you want to make someone's day, get creative and design your very own gift box – a truly heartfelt surprise that will be treasured forever.

Of course, if all of the above sounds wonderful but you simply don't have the time, or creative flair - leave it to us, we know exactly how to make your recipient feel extra special.
