pretty packaging

There's a pretty good chance that i'll spend an extra few bucks on an item that has better packaging, even though the actual product is virtually the same. I find it so strange that simply having pretty wrapping makes you want it more! I can't even imagine how much money I have spent on items just because I wanted to save the packaging and stow it away in my closet, haha.

  1. I'm totally the same way - if I see something with eye-catching packaging, my brain almost always does an "Ooo!" and I run right over lol.

  2. I always admire the packaging on different items and am so impressed that the creators took time to hire a good designer. If you like your product dress it up pretty.

  3. That is how I am with books. If a book has a beautiful cover, I am 10x more likely to pick it up and buy it. I know the old adage is to never judge a book by its cover...but with literal books, I think you should. ^^
    These items' packaging are all so pretty. I really like their minimalistic and elegant styles.

    1. yes i agree! even if it's a book that i don't even want to read, i just like having it displayed on my book shelf haha

  4. I want to order some of this beauty products but the question is if you know how to ship a product like this because sometime it cannot deliver directly if the papers is incomplete.

  5. You're not alone, Minna. I'll pick almost anything with better packaging--food, wine, beauty products, etc. Nothing wrong with wanting something more aesthetically pleasing around :)
