Christmas Swag

Monday, December 14, 2009

Send Christmas cards, check. Bake Christmas cookies, check. Find new ways to gift wrap? Judging from all of the images below, I'd say check!

There's nothing like seeing beautifully wrapped gifts under the tree or in stockings that makes you want to open them up ASAP. Or maybe if they're too beautifully wrapped you don't dare try to rip them open. Either way, you notice how much thought someone put into wrapping your gift let alone finding a gift they think you would like.

Maybe it's because of my passion for design, but I always love it when people just add that extra touch to their gift wrapping. I mean, gift wrap alone is great but what about all of the other gazillion things you can do to embellish it?? Those items should not be forgotten! And don't think that you have to go crazy with adding a ton of things onto an already wrapped gift. Even adding one little thing such as a cool gift tag or using paper tape instead of ribbon will make that extra difference.
