How to Market Your Wrapping Paper

Here’s some things to consider when marketing your wrapping paper. As usual, it starts with when and how you message to your customers.

1. Think about gifting occasions

This is quick list of common holidays and occasions when your customers are likely searching for wrapping paper. This is by no means a complete list, but should help you think about the endless marketing opportunities you have with wrapping paper.

Gifting Occasions:
  • Birthdays
  • Anniversaries
  • Weddings
  • Bachelor & bachelorette parties
  • Christmas, Hanukkah
  • Thank you
  • Valentine’s Day
  • Bridal showers
  • Baby showers
  • Graduation
  • Get well soon
  • Bar Mitzvahs
  • New job
  • New house or home
  • Retirement
  • No reason, just feeling gifty

2. Help your customers think about gift recipients

In your social captions–or any marketing material that is–consider highlighting a special moment that requires an extra touch. Get as goofy as you want or go the other way–tug on the heart strings a little. Either way, you want a customer asking themselves, “What do I want my friend to experience when I give them this gift?”

3. Highlight fun ways to use wrapping paper beyond wrapping a gift

People make all sorts of cool things with wrapping paper–homemade envelopes, placemats, origami, and book covers. They’ll even shred used wrapping paper to cradle a more delicate gift…say an engraved glass for your boss who loves her mezcal. A quick google will give you a ton of great ideas you can give your crafty fans. Keep the marketing fun by changing up how you promote wrapping paper, or any product really, for your sake and your audience.
