Pine branches look gorgeous. Combine them with pine cones, cinnamon, citrus fruits, or dry flowers to decorate the package, or put some inside the package. Be aware that it might be difficult to ship that kind of parcel long distance, but your local customers will be delighted.

Advanced Tip: How to Offer Holiday Wrapping in Your Ecwid Store

Depending on your aims and scopes, you can offer Christmas wrapping for free, as a paid option, or as a combination.

Let’s look at these options in the Ecwid store.

Christmas Wrapping by Default (For Free)

First of all, you should inform your customers about your holiday offer. Of course, Christmas wrapping could be a great surprise for customers, but it’s also an additional motivator that amplifies the value of a purchase.

Add a Premium Option

You can let customers choose between free and paid premium Christmas wrapping. It helps you to cover all the costs and even earn some money.

paid premium Christmas wrapping

You can easily set this up by using Product Options and Product Variations. Customers can even see what your wrapping looks like.

Follow the detailed instructions here: Product Variations in the Ecwid support section.

Add Christmas wrapping as a Product in Product Options

If you come to the realization that you can’t offer Christmas wrapping for free, just let your customers buy it. You may be surprised how popular it is.

wrapping as a Product in Product Options

In your Ecwid store, you can add wrapping as a new product in the catalog or give customers the opportunity to add Christmas wrapping to their products.
