These last couple of months have involved a lot of birthdays and gift-giving. Whenever I give gifts I always like to try and get creative with the packaging to make the whole experience that much more extra special. I try and find old papers from around my home that I can recycle and objects that can add a little bit of prettiness. For the birthdays that have just gone by I used my 2012 calendar by The Wild Unknown to create unique packaging and then on top, placed a stem of fake flowers and a feather. When I gave the person the gift a huge smile came across their face, so the extra bit of effort went a long way.
So, get creative with gift wrapping, use an old calendar or magazine and found objects – it’s fun and inspiring!
