This advent-calendar-like box is filled with 12 different products that could be used during the holidays, certainly, but also for other promotions throughout the year, all while keeping costs down. Commonwealth Packaging Co. ran with the idea by opting for an elegant white rigid box, the flip top of which folds over and closes gently with the soft plop of a magnetic closure. The lid itself boasts soft-touch lamination with the company logo subtly featured in a tone-on-tone holographic foil and two simple-but-on-brand words – “Give Pleasure” – rendered in silver foil.
