Do you have a color theme in mind for your Valentine’s Day gifts?

As you probably know, the color theme is one of the most important aspects of designing your gift wrapping. I’m sure you carefully select the colors and patterns of your materials to create a certain ambiance for the special occasions.

I found an interesting article about the psychology of colors when wrapping gifts for Valentine’s Day.

A business color association in Japan conducted a survey of 250 females age between teens to 70s and asked them which color they choose for Honmei-gift (gifts for someone you love) and Giri-gift (gifts for acquaintances, for example, the bosses, co-workers, business partners, etc).

And here are the results.

Out of all the color choices they had, there are only four colors all the survey participants selected for the gifts for their loved ones…red, pink, gold and silver. And red seems to be the winner for most age groups.

Now, this survey results might be different in different countries or cultures but I found another interesting result for my videos as well. This is my top 4 YouTube videos for gift wrapping tutorials.

Can you see the similarity? For your information, my video viewers are from all around the world and I make many videos using cool color tones like blues and greens as well.

The colors like red and pink represent love, passion, and affection. In my new online course, I incorporated many of those colors and patterns into the designs for your creative inspirations. We’re going to create gift packages to say “I love you” without actually saying it.❤️

The course will open in four days.

Let’s spread the love by creating beautiful gift wrapping this Valentine’s Day!
