I love gift giving not only in Christmas(which is the best time of the year ever) but for any special occasion. Birthdays, anniversaries or simply getting a detail for those I love.
Now, gift giving is not only about the gift itself. It’s about WRAPPING THE GIFTS as well!
I love to personalize them, so whoever the gift is for, it has my signature. Also, is a way for me to express how much I care. Gifts should be personal and all about the one who’s receiving it.
For example, how cool is for a kid to receive a gift with balloons on top instead of a bow? Well, the same goes for adults, it’s just that most people won’t admit it… hehehe
I encourage you to get creative and personalize your presents for the next occasion ;-).
Here are some of my suggestions based on the wrappings I did for last Christmas!
- First, pick a color palette. Neutral and metallics, red and golden, black and white, vibrant neons, etc.
- Second, go shopping some fun, elegant or subtle materials. All depends on your theme and color palette.
THESE ARE A FEW OF THE ITEMS I RECOMMEND YOU TO GET!
(apart from the basics, scissors and tape)
Instead of the usual bow and ribbon, go for personalized cards based on the occasion. They are so much fun and give a nice twist to the present. To make it better, add a message on the card.
WRAPPING PAPER IN THE COLOR OF YOUR CHOOSING
Stick to a color palette and tied back to your theme. Choose diverse prints, textures and even solids. When you stick to a color palette, everything will match! If it’s you’re first time, it will be easier too.
I opted for rose quartz, golden, white and black.
In prints I bought a golden paper with Christmas details, a white roll with tonal and bright stripes and a solid soft pink.
ASSORTED & FUN RIBBONS
Go nuts with the ribbons. No limits here. When I was ribbons shopping I found this gorgeous golden thread from, which tied back perfect to what I had in mind.
START EXPERIMENTING AND HAVING FUN
Remember, if you choose a cohesive color palette, everything will match. It´s just a matter of letting you creative mind do the work.
