Gift wrapping ideas

15 Nov

I think gift wrapping is as much of an art as selecting the perfect gift for someone. When someone takes the time and effort to beautifully wrap a gift, I think the value of that gift goes up ten times instantly, just because of the extra love that goes into the wrapping. That said, if you’re like me, it’s always good in theory and it’s wonderful to ooh and aagh at other peoples beautifully wrapped gifts, but I always wake up too late (like 5 minutes before walking out the door to wrap the gift) to get the wrapping part right… here are a few ideas I found that are nice and simple that I’m going to try out on a few gifts for kiddies coming up. Let me know what you think?

And lastly – next time you either need to wrap a gift card, or you need a ‘birthday card’ for a littlely, balloons (like this one) are always such a winner I think!
