One of the joys of the holidays is the look of joy on a loved one’s face as they open a much wished for gift. Gift giving is one of the oldest symbolic expressions of love and care.
So many of us spend a lot of time finding that perfect gift but don’t give nearly as much thought to the packaging. Who amongst us doesn’t enjoy a beautifully wrapped package under the tree? Beautiful packages don’t have to be expensive or difficult. This year, follow these easy suggestions to make your gift wrap as unique and as memorable as the gift itself!
1. While shiny and printed papers are beautiful, plain brown paper can be a wonderful backdrop for stamps, bows or other beautiful embellishments.
7. And of course, every gift needs a name tag. Crochet borders on simple paper shapes are simple but elegant, personalized cookies offer an extra treat or decorated clay and wooden shapes double as tree ornaments for next year.
Have fun, experiment and most of all keep it personal. Happy gift giving!
