GIFT WRAP & TRIMMING
Thoughtful gifts deserve special gift wrap. For lovely last-minute gift wrapping, using decorative gift bags, gift boxes, and tissue paper couldn't be easier.
Be influenced & Imaginative
Instead of thinking of wrapping gifts as a burden, try to find some inspiration in the task. How do you want the recipient of your gift to feel when they see it? Should they smile? Should they laugh? Feel nostalgic? For those special gifts, think about the wrapping to be a preparation to the gift itself-- setting the expectations and echoing the tone of what's inside. For example, you can draw creativity from a bride's dress when wrapping a wedding photo album. Ruffle a layer of pearly damask wrapping paper and add a string of imitation pearl decorations to mimic the bride's veil.
Wrapping for little kids
For the little ones, we suggest a tried-and-true method that we use when children best prices are smaller: use one type of wrapping paper for each child. If you have a child who loves Hello Kitty or Lego, for example, think about using Hello Kitty or Lego paper for gifts.
Get Invigorated by Nature
Go all out with a nature-inspired gift wrapping palette (think greens and browns) and top things off with uniquely Southern elements, straight from your local florist, nursery, or-- even better-- your own backyard, like a single cotton boll, eucalyptus flowers, or shiny Elaeagnus leaves.
Produce a Golden Glow
Silvery gift wrap paired with a wide wired ribbon that you can fluff up make a stunning and refined present.
Fear not if tying that perfect puffy bow feels elusive. Opt for a simple bow and consider placing it slightly off-center for a more modern look. Feel enabled to think outside the bow. Pine cones, evergreen cuttings and pine needles can add a seasonal bit of flair to gift wrapping.
