I absolutely love giving gifts. Shopping for them, wrapping them, getting cards to accompany them (I have a weird obsession with stationery for a 21 year old), and especially watching people open them. Plus, I always get a little ego boost when my gift is the most adorably wrapped in the pile. So, here are some ideas for the next few presents you’ll give, cuteness factor courtesy of washi tape.
I’m love baking, but live with a health nut, so when it comes to consuming my baking creations, I’m on my own. That’s why I give away baked goods for pretty much any special occasion. I made some French macarons for my mom for her birthday and wanted a quick and easy way to give them to her that looked much better than a plastic container. I think I’ll be making many more of these little treat boxes for all of the recipients of my sweet treats.
Hopefully by this time, you’ve got a few gifts that need to be wrapped. I love brainstorming fun new ways to decorate my gifts. DIY gift toppers and decorations are great because you can coordinate everything yourself and your gifts look unique and well loved. These are some of my favorites!
I have always been envious of those who can wrap and decorate their Christmas gifts like an expert. To me, the most exciting part of the holiday season is picking out, buying, and wrapping Christmas gifts, even though I’m sort of terrible at it. I get all excited at the concept of giving someone a beautifully wrapped present with something that they will love inside, but then I go for it and when I’m done, I’m pretty disappointed by the lack of holiday magic I feel when looking at them. It probably doesn’t help that I’m too cheap to buy nice wrapping paper.
