This year’s supply chain delays have provided extra motivation. Luxury resale marketplace The RealReal says it saw a 60% jump last year over the year before among those choosing gift boxes with purchases during the holiday season. Last month, the online site, which has 16 brick-and-mortar consignment stores around the U.S., saw orders with gift boxes rise significantly for Gucci and Louis Vuitton items.
