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 & Creative
Instead of thinking of wrapping gifts as a chore, try to find some inspiration in the task. How do you want the recipient of your gift to feel when they see it? For those special gifts, consider the wrapping to be a prelude to the gift itself-- setting the expectations and echoing the tone of what's inside.
Wrapping for little kids
For the children, we recommend a tried-and-true method that we use when children are younger: use one type of wrapping paper for each child. The wrapping could be color-coded, or reflect the child's interests. it helps kids know which gifts belong to whom, and it serves as an easy way to highlight, in wrapping paper form, something that each child loves. If you have a child who loves Hello Kitty or read more Lego, for example, think about using Hello Kitty or Lego paper for gifts.
Get Influenced by Nature
Go all out with a nature-inspired get it now gift wrapping palette (think browns get it now and greens) 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.
Generate a Golden Glow
Metallic gift wrap paired with a wide wired ribbon that you can fluff up make a refined and stunning gift.
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 encouraged to think beyond the bow. Pine cones, evergreen trimmings and pine needles can add a seasonal bit of flair to gift wrapping.
