Handcrafted scented items are the perfect gifts. They are cheap, easy to make, and are very personal. They are simple tokens that will be appreciated by anyone who receives them. As a company, it is important that you take care of your loyal customers. By sending them personalized scented items as gifts, you are letting them know that they are truly appreciated.
What Kind of DIY Scented Items Can You Make?
Aside from the usual scented candles, you may also have room sprays, bath bombs, organic soaps, aromatherapy balms, lotions, perfumes, bath salts, body scrubs and a whole lot more. Truly, the possibility is endless when it comes to making personalized gifts.
Importance of Labels
DIY scented items are special on their own. However, letting them look plain and label-free is wasting an opportunity to make them look more extraordinary. Labels can easily add charm to any scented items and there are a variety of materials to choose from. Putting a label will allow you to put some information about the gifts like ingredients, expiration date, and the company/personal logo.
Suitable Design and Materials
It is common among DIY items to have a rustic nature when it comes to designing both the packaging and labels. Recyclable and brown Kraft labels are much preferred to add to that DIY vibe going on. For bottled items, clear labels would suit best. Embossed labels are suggested if you want to impress.
In choosing colors for the prints, a neutral palette would look perfectly matched on rustic labels. Natural colors instantly bring a sense of calmness and warmth and are attractive for eco-conscious individuals. Balance it off by adding brighter tints on other design elements as an accent. Sometimes, the color choices are what make the packaging and labels look premium. Aim to go for a wholesome touch in your colors to make the labels look low-key but still attractive.
Go for Gender-Specific Labels
There may be some of your DIY scented items that are specifically for women or men. It might be awkward for a male recipient to receive a gift with a floral label on it. On the other hand, a masculine-design label for something you intend to give to a woman is also off. So, for items that are aimed for men, designs that feature strong graphics and colors are fitting. Floral and colors in shades of pink are appropriate. Of course, you can also be gender-neutral and stick with nature-inspired colors in neutral tones if you think both groups would appreciate the same items.
Your DIY scented item project will not be complete without the perfect label to it. You should seriously consider having labels done by a professional so that everything is made flawlessly. Presentation is everything if you are after impressing the recipients. You could fail to achieve this even with the greatest design ideas when the execution is weak. Personalized scented items are special and must be treated as such. Make its beauty shine even more with professionally made labels.
