Today it is difficult for us to imagine a holiday without gifts, and gifts without festive packaging. In fact, no matter how memorable and bright the gift is, the first impression still remains with what our present was presented in. And today, packaging is not just decoration, but almost a necessity. Hover, this was not always the case.
Few people know that the people of ancient Greece and civilizations located in the fertile valleys of the Middle Eastern rivers: the Nile, the Euphrates and the Tigris, came up with the idea of packing goods for the first time. The first packaging in history was dressed skins and earthenware vessels. It was in them that the products and goods to be transported re packaged. Some of them re painted and painted, but the function of decoration was secondary to the practical component. Things that can be carried without special containers re carried without them.
In the Middle Ages, objects re wrapped in plant leaves or paper, laid out in bags and in barrels. Packaging continued to fulfill the purely practical goals of ease of transport and preservation of products.
It is also known that at the end of the 18th century, inscriptions and drawings began to be applied to tin boxes for cookies, biscuits, candies and tea in England, after which tins with candies gradually ceased to be just tins. Not much time has passed, and beautiful boxes with sets have already turned into a cute present and a charming gift for the New Year, which guests presented to children and elderly family members during their visit.
The gift wrapping revolution happened in the United States at the beginning of the 20th century. Stores began to wrap gifts in unsightly paper and tie them with ribbons to surprise the recipient. The idea began to be adopted by large brands, and then by other countries, as it contributed to the support and development of the pulp and paper industry.

At the same time, the range of packaging represents an almost unlimited choice of packaging materials, both in terms of price and aesthetic characteristics. You can make your gift unique by wrapping it in a gift bag.thereby leaving the most vivid impressions of the holiday with your loved ones!
