Do you have a signature style gift wrap?
I have a style for gifts I send to out-of-town family,
since there are kiddos and we don't do adult gifts,
my goal is a 'WOW' factor when the box is opened!
I start with a color scheme and use coordinating papers and ribbon to keep everything cohesive. This year the trendy red and aqua looked fun & festive!
Costco has great ribbon ~ 50 yd. spools for around $7.
I look for gifts that coordinate, too.
I found this fudge brownie mix in a pot holder,
perfect for little chefs in training.
Even though we don't exchange gifts, I like to include something
fun for the stylish mom!
A Christmas frame (with personalized message)
and monogrammed ornament.
In the first photo were treats for Dad,
Mrs. Field's Snickerdoodles and Junior Mints in Peppermint Crunch,
to get him through the day!
I always tie an ornament onto the kids packages,
both of these coordinated nicely with the wrap.
I love to send a HUGE box, is there anything more fun than the UPS
truck pulling up to your door with a BIG package?
I print labels on my computer and add a hand drawn touch.
(They can be very festive if you remember to get ink!)
Here's another example of 'signature style' wrap...
My friend always creates a gorgeous presentation using clear cellophane wrap, and beautifully coordinates the ribbon/embellishment with the color of her gifts!
Candle, note cards and fur -trimmed oven mitt!
Do you have a signature style?
After Christmas sales are a great time to pick up wrap & ribbon,
and you're on your way!
