Multi-purpose organisation

In this video, we show you how you can use your gold tin for different purposes: to store office supplies, as a jewellery box, to organise small cables and even to store dog food. One tin, countless possibilities!

Artistic design

Another inspiring example is the use of gold cans as a canvas for artistic works. In a fascinating video, a Swiss artist shows how she covers the lid inside the gold tin with a small canvas and uses the lower part of the tin as a colour palette to create beautiful paintings. This illustrates the creative versatility and practical use of gold tins as a blank canvas for artistic expression. In addition, designing a gold tin as a work of art offers a unique opportunity to create a personalised and lovingly designed gift that is sure to leave an impression on the recipient.


Plant decoration

Why not turn your gold tin into a stylish plant pot? With a few holes in the bottom for drainage and some soil, you can grow small houseplants or herbs. It adds a touch of greenery and elegance to your home.

Our Instagram video shows how you can turn your gold tin into a festive plant decoration, perfect as a unique Christmas gift! Use your gold tin to present a miniature Christmas landscape or a lovingly designed plant and spread joy.

A golden money box

Did you know that you can easily turn your empty gold tin into a money box? All it takes is a small hole in the lid and you have a stylish way to collect your loose change. Watch our video to find out how easy it is!

How love and creativity come together in one gift

Once, a marriage proposal was even made with the help of one of our gold tins! The ring was cleverly hidden in the gold tin. When the bride-to-be opened it, she not only found a treasure, but also the love of her life.
