What Does Seasonal Packaging Mean?

Seasonal packaging more than just a strategy, is a powerful marketing tool. But what exactly is it? Seasonal packaging is a marketing and product design tactic that companies use to promote their services or products in a targeted manner during specific times of the year, often coinciding with holidays, seasons or thematic events. Its essence lies in capturing consumers’ attention, creating a unique shopping experience and emphasising the relevance of the product to the occasion at hand.

Now, why should you pay attention to seasonal packaging? Well, the data don’t lie. There are only three more months before the year ends, but already an estimate of the lucrative seasonal packaging market can be made. Last year, a study showed that it is worth around $27 billion; while, predictions point to steady growth of 3.6% between 2022 and 2032. In 10 years (2032) it could reach a value of $38 billion, contributing 3% of the global packaging market.

Why is it constantly growing? There are several reasons. Firstly, buyers are increasingly inclined to purchase products with seasonal packaging. This can be attributed to various factors, including the desire to collect themed items. For companies it could be the urge to take advantage of limited editions, the desire to differentiate one’s brand in a crowded market, and the ability to create an unboxing experience that entices sharing on social media (especially following the latest trends).

Seasonal packaging is not just a ‘passing fad’, but an effective and growing marketing strategy and tool. It represents a tangible way to engage consumers and drive sales.

Seasonal Packaging Key Features

What are the characteristics that distinguish seasonal packaging? In our case, Christmas packaging? There are some key features that cannot go unnoticed.

  • Thematic Elements and Decorations: a true distinguishing factor. This is where we can make the most of the embellishments that Packly offers. By incorporating these precious elements, such as gold or silver details, along with other graphic elements, colors, and decorations that evoke the specific event or season, you can transform a simple package into something extraordinary. For example, Christmas packaging could shimmer with images of Santa Claus, enhanced by touches of gold or silver that add a sense of elegance and festivity.
  • Special Promotions: such as special discounts related to seasonal packaging to encourage purchases during that period.
  • Limited Edition: to create a “sense of urgency” among consumers to buy the product before it runs out.
  • Emotions and Traditions: this type of seasonal packaging leverages emotions. It can be designed to evoke emotions and memories associated with the event or season, helping to create an emotional connection with the buyer.
