Creative Gift Packaging Ideas with Rubbermaid Bento Organizers
This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Rubbermaid Bento Organizers but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #HolidayBento http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO.
Are you done your holiday shopping yet? Not me! I feel so behind this year, because normally right about now I’m just crossing a stocking stuffer or two off my list to finish up, but this year I’m not even 50% done.
I found myself shopping at Target the other day, trying to knock a few things off of Ashley’s wish list. She’s already secured a teaching job, so after graduation in the spring, she’ll be moving a few hours away where she’ll have her very first apartment. Target gift cards were on her list as she knows they carry lots of great items for home decoration and storage plus items to stock her kitchen.
While wandering around the home department I came across the Rubbermaid Bento Organizers. I was immediately drawn to their design; we have a chair with a similar pattern. After taking a few minutes to examine them more closely, I was also impressed with the actual construction. The interior pockets flex to accommodate the items, letting you create just the right size and shape compartments for what you’re storing.
For Christmas each year I usually give Ashley a big box of toiletries to take back to campus. Looking at the bento organizers with all those internal pockets gave me a new idea, though. Gift baskets!
They’re the perfect size for holding the odds and ends I picked up to give her to kick off life in her new apartment: lotion, pop-up umbrella, oral care items, sugar-free candies, boxes of tea, deodorant, razors, inserts for her shoes (teachers stand on their feet a lot!), jewelry and more.
The dividers were perfect for holding everything in place. And after the items are removed she’ll be able to use them to keep clutter controlled in her new apartment. It’s a gift inside of a gift!
The Rubbermaid Bento Organizers also have optional trays that you can purchase. They fit on top of the organizers to keep everything inside out of sight, while adding additional storage on top. Great for stacking, too!
I also picked up a couple for myself. While I do have a home office, I often spend most of my time working from a chair in the living room to be near my family. The tabletop next to my chair can get a little out of control with to-do lists, business cards, notes, etc. Not really something I want my drop-in holiday guests to see! Fortunately my new Rubbermaid Bento Organizers are keeping my impromptu “desk” nice and neat.

Such a great gift! I love the Rubbermaid Bento Boxes
This is adorable and it will hold so much!!
This is such a smart way to package a gift. I’m a teacher and use containers like this in my class for EVERYTHING. She will love it!
I love how it doesn’t have the ugly-storage-bin look! It looks really nice, and is a great way to declutter!
These look wonderful! I’d love one to organize my make-up. I love the care package you put together for apartment living. Very creative!
what a very cute gift – the gift is on the inside and outside!
This would be great to make for those relatives that are hard to buy for…. I am sure they will love this!
That’s a great gift idea. I love the boxes. They’re cute.
I love this idea! What a fun way to pack up a gift to someone, and have it still look nice after it’s been jostled around a bit!
i would use them for various things. i need something like this. thanks for sharing!
Very cute! Love it. I need something like that for my kids bathroom! And my desk 😉
These are awesome! Such a great gift idea!
I love these Bento Boxes. I would organize my kids Teachers Christmas gifts in them.
I love that you can customize the slots and they have some extremely cute designs!
I love that, great idea for the college bound!
I keep seeing these boxes everywhere. I need to get some.
I love those – they are way cuter than just using plastic tubs to organize my stuff.
I think these Rubbermaid Bento boxes are great for storing gifts and helping to organize.
I didn’t know that the Rubbermaid Bento Organizers existed, and I love them! I am getting some next time I run into Target!
Oooh, I love organization! These bento boxes are amazing.
Aww, I just love this idea! I adore the pattern on these boxes, so pretty. Great stuff, thanks!
I like the idea of doing a wrap center of sorts with gift tags, tape, scissors, pens, ribbons, etc.
that’s a cool housewarming gift. i should put my holiday card stuff in one
I’m in love!!! I have never seen these before but they would make great gift boxes. But, I could use them for myself! I love to organize and then re-organize. LOL
Those are great. I think i could use them for organizing all of my daughter’s arts and crafts things. Maybe even for toys!
What a great idea! I would definitely grab a few for Teacher gifts. Thank you!
I could really, really use these myself!
These are great! I thought about using one of these organizers to make an art/craft gift for my nieces.
These are fantastic. I like that you can use them as wrapping and practically. Plus the designs are fantastic.
