Research has shown that toys that are packaged in a proper way are often received much more positively than badly wrapped toys. The wrapping is the first thing that the recipient notices. As the saying goes, first impressions are lasting impressions. A bad first impression now very hard to make up for. The toy can be a very exciting one but it would still have a very hard time making up for a badly wrapped package. The importance of wrapping and packaging toys can not be overstated. This is even more important for large or more expensive toys. A person gifting a toy can get away with a badly packaged you if the toy itself is a cheap one. However, it is nearly impossible to ignore the packaging when the toy itself is very expensive. A good packaging nicely complements the toy packaging boxes and shows that the person gifting it cares about the recipient. There are few better ways of showing love and care than by packing your gifts and toys properly. A decent wrapping adds to the value of a gift and influences the perception of the person receiving it.
Social etiquette dictates that the opinion of the other person should be valued and that things should be seen from other peoples’ perspective. This is never truer than in the context of giving and receiving gifts. An attractive gift packaging shows that the person giving it is socially conscious and is updated with the current social norms. It shows common decency and respect.
Most people in developed societies care more about the way a gift is presented than the actual gift itself. Some cultures even consider it offensive to present a gift without much regards for the way it is presented. It is not uncommon to see people rejecting gifts because of the bad quality of the way it is wrapped. In some cases, people might even return the gift outright or break it. Situations like this can be embarrassed for the giver and it is advisable to be prepared beforehand. All of this can easily be avoided by being more presentable and putting in some effort planning about presenting the gift. Many books and articles offer advice on being more presentable and considerate when giving a gift. The culture also needs to be taken into consideration.
There are many different things that determine the quality of the presentation. The most important factor that affects the presentation is the quality of the wrapping. Toys need to be packaged in shiny wrapping. A plastic covering often serves the purpose. It is better to use a high grade plastic that can resist heat and keep out the moisture. Toys need to be packaged carefully because children are more mindful of the wrapping and packaging than adults.
