Gift Pepper Spray is All About the Packaging

Pepper spray is a powerful, serious self-defense tool, but why can’t it also be a really cute and thoughtful gift? It can! Gift pepper spray is now a thing. Here at Blingsting, we started with a plain, masculine looking pepper spray canister and created an entirely new product category. Gift pepper spray is about the entire package – effectiveness, design, and really great packaging.

Being a girl myself, I know that we loooove things in nice packages. I couldn’t ever understand why the pepper spray companies paid literally zero attention to their packaging – don’t they want girls to buy, carry, and use their products?







Honestly just put a bow on our box and it's cute af. 

It's sturdy, pink, and practical - isn't that everything you want in a gift box??

When I set out to create the ultimate gift pepper spray, I started with what was trending at the boutiques and department stores. I loved looking at all the different treatments used in fashion accessory design and also studying the higher-end gift box packaging. I knew that if I wanted to have a line truly giftable line of pepper sprays, it had to scream quality!

Sparkles! And, fun! And the product names have to be clever and cheeky. Boring someone with their brand new gift pepper spray is not allowed!


I get so excited when we are launching a new product because I get to go back to the original creative process that I love so much. Every time I take a couple of hours to walk my favorite stores like Sephora, Nordstrom, and Target so I can see what’s happening in packaging, fonts, and colors.


I pull a little from here and a little from there, and create a concept that marries all the elements I love into my final design. Over the years we’ve seen that our customers totally understand and appreciate the idea that you should be able to gift pepper spray; if what’s inside is the same powerful formula as the other pepper sprays on the market, then being cute is just an added bonus.

Keep them hot and safe.
