Gifting is more than a social protocol. It is a lovely, heart-warming and creative way to communicate your emotions (such as love, appreciation, respect; etc.) to someone. Hence whenever gifting season comes, people are always thinking: “I need something special”.When it comes to “special”, not only the gift inside matters, but also the packaging.

However, tea seems not always the best choice for gifting because people often feel it is not interesting and special enough. They will turn to something brighter or more exciting, or seek for something more premium.

Lipton, the world-leading tea brand, is asking for your ideas to make Lipton tea the best choice for gifting across all different gifting seasons (Christmas, Ramadan, Chinese new year, birthday, wedding; etc.).

Creative Challenge

Design a premium yet bright and exciting gift pack for Lipton tea to make tea something “special” to give across all different gifting seasons.

Your gift pack design should give Lipton tea an emotional touch in different gifting occasions.It should be embodied with brightness and excitement to stand out on the shelf. It should look premium but not a luxury gift! And don’t forget to think about what material/design can make your gift pack look premium and stand out on the shelf. E.g. some brands use tin or wooden box to make the packaging look more premium.

Think about what Lipton product you want to put into your pack to deliver the emotion and also give more flavors for people to enjoy. To add more values to the pack, you can also design a unique gift (a mug; etc.) to go with the tea products.

Your gift pack should travel well across different regions and cultures,so make sure it will be loved by people from different cultural background.

Tips from eYeka: (we are not giving the answers but just thought starters so please do not make your work look exactly like our examples)

You can start thinking about how to make tea into something heartwarming, festive and emotional. Maybe through a symbol, e.g. the varied flavors of Lipton tea will enrich people’s life like a rainbow.Or you can think about the moment that tea facilitates, especially when it connects people and brings a joyful touch, and how that can be translated into a gift pack. Think about the theme first then the details. You can also get inspiration from the gift pack of other categories (candy, chocolate; etc.)
