Remember when we were kids getting gifts from our mom. She always was the best when it came to wrapping gifts. She took the time and special care to pick out the paper, wrap the gift pristine and even pick the perfect bow. She was not about the gift, but the presentation and the process of gift giving. Sometimes, she would even go out of her way to design her own personalized gift wrap, to show that she cared just that little bit more. Here are few tips to wrap gifts more like the way mom used to.
Other Than Bows
Rather than just using bows and ribbons, decorate your packages with candy. For the holidays candy canes are especially creative. You can even take two to design a heart. You can also use little bags of your special someone’s favorite candies. You can also go with themed gifts. For example, if you’re giving a beach themed gift, wrap your presents with shells.
Creative Boxes and Containers
If you’re not talented in wrapping gifts, try finding creative boxes to present gifts in. Using decorated Chinese food containers, cylindrical containers, or even antique lunch boxes. The unique container is not only fun, but also can be useful and reused several times.
Take these creative techniques and your friends will surely be impressed with your mom-like gift-wrapping skills.
