Here's our secret stash of five awesome ways to package bath bombs for a gift that's as delightful on the outside as it is on the inside.


1. Festive Gift Boxes or Tins

When it comes to packaging these fizzy delights, go beyond 'nice' and aim for 'stunning.' Pick gift boxes or tins in the jolliest holiday shades and patterns imaginable. Think snowflakes dancing in the frost, holly berries bursting with joy, or that mesmerizing metallic shine that screams celebration! And let's not forget the bow, the ribbon - that extra dash of festive flair that says, 'This gift is not just wrapped; it's an experience!

If your tin is feeling a bit too spacious for the bath bomb, don't leave it feeling lonely! Add some delightful stuffings - green and red tissue paper, shredded paper, or fabric - to make sure your fizzy treasure stays snug and secure until it's time for the big reveal.

Those clear containers aren't just pretty faces; they're the VIP pass to let your recipient peek inside and get a sneak preview of the fizzy extravaganza awaiting them.
