Found: cute gift boxes at SM Megamall
Posted on

What do you call people who love colorful stationery like I do?
I go crazy whenever I see a shop full of cute items.
As much as I love hoarding cute things, I also find joy in giving gifts in cute packages.
One thing I’ve noticed in Manila is the lack of cute wrapping papers and boxes. There’s a box store I sometimes go to at Rockwell but I find the shop girls so deadma and unfriendly, like you wonder if they missed lunch or something.
The boxes at National bookstore are more functional than anything, but good enough if you have a ton presents to wrap.
I am not fond of this box store in Mandaluyong. I understand they make a killing during Christmas, but the boxes there are really flimsy and cheap-looking. How I wish they would make boxes for people who are willing to pay for better quality. Also the shop girls, not very friendly.
So my favorite box store would have to be Muji for the kraft paper boxes.

Muji boxes. Completely plain, unmarked, unlabelled. Because it DOES matter.

Packaging is everything! If you’re going to give a nice present, you might as well pack them nicely.
Recently I found a source of cute boxes at SM department store in Megamall A, at the ground level.

All these boxes are sturdy and imported and cost more than your ordinary cardboard box. Expect to pay more than Php 100 each.

So pretty, you don’t have to use wrapping paper or ribbon

    Miss C, i share your sentiments regarding that store in Rockwell – it’s called Wrap it Up. Super deadma talaga the salesgirls. As in walang pakialam talaga. Hindi nila kailangan ng benta. 🙂

    I like the boxes and gift bags at Daiso. Simple and affordable (S$2) lang.

    off topic….. Why can’t the supermarkets and shops provide brown bags WITH HANDLES in them.. It seems they refuse because they are making money selling re usable bags..

    It would be okay to give brown paper bags for smaller purchases, but how do they expect people to carry larger brown bags if they don’t find a way to put handles or something that would make it easier for customers to carry… so annoying…

    I agree that the packaging of a product/gift makes all the difference! 🙂 RM boxes are marketed as food packaging (mostly for cakes, pastries etc) definitely not meant for gifts.
