If you do not know what to give to friends or rel­a­tives, then a gift box can be a great option. This set is sure to please every­one. How to col­lect and arrange a New Year’s gift box? What to give a child? You will find ansrs to these and some oth­er ques­tions in our arti­cle.

What can adults put in?

A com­bined gift is an excel­lent present that can be pre­sent­ed to every per­son, regard­less of gen­der and age. A sig­nif­i­cant advan­tage of such a com­plex gift is that it can be indi­vid­u­al­ized and per­son­al­ized as much as pos­si­ble, depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic needs and tastes of the per­son to whom you want to present a sur­prise. Tra­di­tion­al­ly, there are sev­er­al cat­e­gories of gift box­es.


All rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the beau­ti­ful half of human­i­ty fall into this cat­e­go­ry: moth­ers, sis­ters, aunts, nieces, girl­friends, etc. For cute girls, a wood­en box for the New Year can be filled with small, but pleas­ant and use­ful hygiene prod­ucts: lotions and shor gels, sham­poos , bombs or bath salts. A sim­i­lar option is a set of cos­met­ic and care prod­ucts.

This can include lip gloss­es and lip­sticks, hair oils, face masks, body creams, and more. Also, girls will be delight­ed with house­hold and relax­ation items received as a gift, in par­tic­u­lar, scent­ed can­dles or sticks.

In this way, ladies will be able to cre­ate a SPA-salon atmos­phere in their bath­room.

For men

Men will love a New Year’s box filled with prac­ti­cal and nec­es­sary things. In accor­dance with the sea­son, dad, broth­er, boyfriend or friend can be pre­sent­ed with a wardrobe item: a hat, gloves, scarf or even banal socks. You can also put per­fume or a shav­ing kit in the box. It would be appro­pri­ate to give a ther­mo mug or a ther­mos — these things will be used quite often, so the donee will remem­ber you all the time.

No less pop­u­lar items that can become part of a gift set are gad­get acces­sories.

The con­ver­sa­tion, in par­tic­u­lar, con­cerns charg­ers and head­phones for smart­phones, tablets, lap­tops or per­son­al com­put­ers, exter­nal bat­ter­ies, exter­nal hard dri­ves, smart watch­es.

For couples

If on New Year’s hol­i­days you plan to please a cou­ple of your rel­a­tives or a fam­i­ly of friends with a gift, then for them it is worth col­lect­ing a dou­ble hol­i­day box that will come in handy and please both of you. For exam­ple, a blan­ket and a few books can be a great option. Thus, new­lyds or already expe­ri­enced spous­es will be able to spend a cold win­ter evening read­ing togeth­er in the com­fort and warmth of a blan­ket.

Also for an adult cou­ple, a set of elite alco­hol, a pack of high-qual­i­ty tea or cof­fee is suit­able. Such a gift can be sup­ple­ment­ed with glass­es or cups. Gift sets that include home tex­tiles or oth­er house­hold items will also be appro­pri­ate. For exam­ple, bed linen or a set of tols.


If you are a mem­ber of a large friend­ly com­pa­ny, then it is not nec­es­sary for every­one to give a sep­a­rate gift. You can put togeth­er a box that will allow you to spend anoth­er fun evening togeth­er. For exam­ple, a set that is intend­ed for a movie night can be a great set. Pack a few Christ­mas com­e­dy discs, a large bag of pop­corn, or any oth­er snacks of your choice into the box.

Thus, you will focus not on mate­r­i­al things and gifts, but on your friend­ships and cre­at­ing a unique fes­tive atmos­phere.

In addi­tion to movie nights, board game nights can also be orga­nized. Or even com­bine every­thing togeth­er.

How to assemble a children’s box?

Of course, a set of gifts can be giv­en not only to adults, but also to chil­dren. Such a sur­prise will espe­cial­ly please the kids, because it will include sev­er­al presents at once. There is a huge vari­ety of options for com­plet­ing a chil­dren’s box. Let’s con­sid­er some of them.

It is obvi­ous that the com­po­si­tion of chil­dren’s box­ing any toy must be includ­ed. Since you are col­lect­ing sev­er­al presents at once, and the toy is only part of a com­mon box, you should not pur­chase too bulky and expen­sive items. An excel­lent option for a girl would be a small doll or her favorite fairy-tale or car­toon char­ac­ter, and a boy can put a car or a fun­ny ani­mal.

The main char­ac­ter of your box can also be a plush toy. The most pop­u­lar options are a ted­dy bear or a hare. In addi­tion, you can now find toys on the mar­ket that are the so-called “2 in 1” items. For exam­ple, a soft toy can also be a bacweack or a small pil­low. We advise you to take a clos­er look at these options.

If the child to whom you give a New Year’s box shows bright cre­ative abil­i­ties and tal­ents, then you can give him an album for draw­ing and paint, and for small­er chil­dren — col­or­ing books.

A great addi­tion that every kid will appre­ci­ate are sets of stick­ers and stick­ers. If there are sev­er­al chil­dren in the fam­i­ly, then you can give them a com­mon gift in the form of a group game. This option can be a puz­zle, a toy bas­ket­ball hoop with a ball, or a chil­dren’s bowl­ing set. Com­ple­ment the gift with a small set present. For exam­ple, put a kinder sur­prise in a box.

Ideas for a set gift

A Christ­mas gift box does not have to be a main or expen­sive gift. Such a set can be turned into a pure­ly sym­bol­ic present if you put some inter­est­ing sets inside. Actu­al set gifts for the New Year will be sets of hon­ey and tea. Put sev­er­al types of hon­ey in the box (for exam­ple, lin­den, flor, buck­wheat, etc.) and fill the jars with a pack of herbal tea. Thus, you will turn your box into a nice and use­ful gift.

Anoth­er pop­u­lar option is dried fruit sets. New Year is a peri­od of cold and harsh ather, so it is espe­cial­ly nice to please your loved ones with set treats that can be con­sumed with hot tea. A set set of dried fruits can include dates, dried apri­cots, dried apples, raisins and prunes, as ll as any oth­er prod­ucts of your choice. Hov­er, remem­ber that they should match the tastes of the per­son you are giv­ing the gift to.

More tra­di­tion­al win­ter gift sets include cocoa, marsh­mal­lows and choco­late. Such a set is sure to warm in the win­ter cold along with tea.

If you have culi­nary skills and know how to cook ll, then you should give a dessert made by your­self. It can be cup­cakes, cook­ies or even a pie. Pay spe­cial atten­tion to dec­o­rat­ing such home­made sets. On their sur­face, using a cream col­ored with food col­or­ing, you can apply images of snowflakes, San­ta Claus, Christ­mas trees and oth­er attrib­ut­es of win­ter and the New Year. An ide­al and clas­sic option is gin­ger­bread in the shape of men.

Hov­er, in order to give the gift more soul­ful­ness, you can cre­ate a pack­age with your own hands. To do this, you will need a box: you can buy it ready-made or cre­ate it your­self. If you buy a ready-made box, then it will be dec­o­rat­ed with pat­terns and draw­ings in advance, and if you build the pack­ag­ing your­self, then you will have to work hard. So, to cre­ate a New Year’s box, you will need:

  • base box — it can be a box for shoes, house­hold appli­ances, etc. (it is desir­able that it has a lid);
  • wrap­ping paper with a New Year’s pat­tern or foil;
  • scis­sors;
  • Ruler and pen­cil;
  • glue or tape;
  • dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments of your choice (rib­bons, beads and beads, New Year’s tin­sel, fir branch­es, cones, etc.).

First you need to mea­sure and cut off the required amount of paper, which should sub­se­quent­ly be past­ed over the box itself. More­over, it is desir­able to do this both from the inside and out­side. If you used liq­uid glue or adhe­sive tape for glu­ing, then you def­i­nite­ly need to leave the fin­ished struc­ture for a while to let it dry ll.

After that, pro­ceed to the imme­di­ate pro­ce­dure for dec­o­rat­ing the box. So, on the out­er part of the lid, you can stick a dec­o­ra­tive bow or attach a few spruce branch­es and cones — this can be done with glue, adhe­sive tape or dec­o­ra­tive ropes.

Fol­low that so that all the dec­o­ra­tions are cor­rect­ly com­bined and do not stand out from the over­all col­or palette. The per­fect New Year’s com­bi­na­tion: green, red, gold, sil­ver, white. With the help of New Year’s tin­sel on the out­side of the lid, you can also lay out images of a Christ­mas tree or snowflakes. You can also use dec­o­ra­tive stick­ers or stick­ers.

The inside of the box also requires atten­tion. Before you put a gift in it, put some tin­sel, scat­ter con­fet­ti, or dec­o­rate the bot­tom of the box with foil. Place a gift on top. remem­ber, that dec­o­ra­tion and gift wrap­ping play no less impor­tant role than the choice of present itself.

This is espe­cial­ly true for chil­dren. After all, unpack­ing gifts for them is a spe­cial fes­tive and fab­u­lous process, so in no case should it be neglect­ed.
