But as a professional paper packaging supplier, I am always look out for creative gift packaging. So let my camera capture the details first!

The Root of the Dragon Boat Festival

The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as Duanwu Festival, is a traditional Chinese holiday that occurs on the fifth day of the fifth month of the lunar calendar. It commemorates the life and death of the famous Chinese scholar Qu Yuan, a loyal minister of the State of Chu during the Warring States period. Falsely accused of treason and exiled, Qu Yuan drowned himself in the Miluo River in despair. The locals raced out in their boats to save him, which is believed to be the origin of dragon boat races. They also threw rice into the river to prevent fish from eating Qu Yuan’s body, leading to the tradition of eating zongzi (sticky rice dumplings) during the festival.

The Significance of Custom Boxes and Packaging

During the Dragon Boat Festival, custom boxes and packaging play a key role in presenting gifts, treats, and traditional items associated with the holiday. These meticulously crafted boxes not only serve as containers but also symbolize cultural values and convey well-wishes. Intricate patterns and decorative elements are incorporated into Dragon Boat Festival packaging to create an eye-catching and elegant presentation. This can include embossed textures, foil stamping, spot UV, laser-cut designs, and intricate patterns inspired by traditional Chinese art and craftsmanship.

Inspired by Tradition: Box with a handle

The carrier style boxes with handle are inspired by the way zongzi is tied. Zongzi is securely tied with bamboo leaves and twine to hold its shape and prevent the contents from spilling out during cooking. Typically, five zongzi are bundled together, making them easy to carry. Thus, a box with a handle for packing zongzi is widely practiced.
