The Importance of Attractive Gift Wrapping When Gift Giving

Thereís an old saying that ďa book canít be judged by its coverĒ, does not apply when it comes to the presentation and packaging of a special gift because the packaging really does say something about the gift that is being given. What the packaging really says is that you cared enough to make the gift very special, both inside and outside.

You Don't Need to be an Artist

You may not be the most creative person in the world, but if you take the time to be a little creative, you can give someone special a gift they are excited to open the moment they see it. With a few supplies and a little inspiration your gifts will stand out and shout that you really care.

Don't Wait Until the Last Moment

The first thing that you must remember is to not put off gift-wrapping until the last moment. This not only will stress you out but the wrapping job will show it. So make sure that you do a little planning and have all the supplies necessary such as wrapping paper, tissue paper, scissors, bows and tape readily accessible.

Specific Tips

Here are some helpful tips for making the job easier.

Instead of buying printed gift paper, try going with a plain red, a metallic silver, and a beautiful white. These papers can look wonderful during the holidays by using red, green, or metallic ribbons. And later they can look equally wonderful for other holidays using different colored ribbon and bows.

Clear or printed cellophane bags can be a lifesaver for small non-fragile gifts, candies, or baked goods. Simply insert the item into the bag (wrapped in tissue if desired) and seal the top with ribbon, cording, or a twist tie. These bags come in several sizes.
Tissue can make any gift seem more festive. Collect several colors to use when lining gift boxes, to cushion delicate items or even to use as gift paper. Avoid buying a few sheets at a time, as these are particularly expensive so buy in bulk.

Seasonal stickers are a fun way to decorate plain gift bags, tags, or to close cello bagged gifts.

Beautiful tags are a lovely touch. However, they can sometimes come off and get lost. Try the stick-on types when mailing gifts or for large gatherings when the tag could be inadvertently detached. To and from information can also be written on top of the gift or glue or tape the greeting card right to the top of the box. You can also make your own tags in any size or shape using colored paper or cardstock. Scalloped edge scissors will also help create beautiful looking tags. Cut off the fronts of beautiful holiday cards and attach them to your gifts using double face tape. The picture on the card will dress up your gift and add a bit of color and style. Use a simple cording as ribbon.
