Your brand's packaging is a big deal. Starting out, you may roll with cost-efficient basics. To keep people coming back, packaging can indirectly build a connection with customers by offering a good packaging/opening experience.
Basic packaging gets the job done, but there are small inexpensive details you can change to keep costs low and customer high. 
List of Inexpensive things you can add a little "umph" to basic packaging: 
  • logo stickers or thank you stickers
  • write a personalized note on a thank you card
  • use color tissue paper or color bubble wrap
  • Make DIY Flyers, hang tags and postcards 
  • Use a dryer sheet to keep products fresh or spritz package with vegan-friendly spray (optional)

Do what works best for you and your business. Imagine yourself as a potential customer looking on the outside at your brand. How would you feel about the packaging your currently use (or plan to use)? Increase your chances of video shares, photo shares and word-of-mouth shares with custom packaging or packaging that stands out. Make a great first impression to customers that may not know the face behind the brand. This is your chance to show customers you care about them and you care about how your brand is represented. Eventually your packaging efforts will begin to increase your returning customer rate and brand awareness.
