The holidays can be a busy time of year! Follow our new gift wrapping guide to create unique and simple presents for all the people you love!
Swap the gift toppers for something more useful!
Why attach a gift bow or curling ribbon that will just get thrown out? Try decorating gift boxes and bags with something that can be used over and over! Our small body lotions, bar soaps and dryer sachets will not only dress up your gifts, but be an extra gift to use! Your friends and family will be so excited to find a Lavender Lip Balm Key Chain, soap or lotion attached to their gift bag on Christmas morning!
Think outside the box!
Instead of finding a box or bag to fit that perfect gift, find a reusable bag that can be used all year long! After opening their gift on Christmas morning, you won't have to throw away all that ripped paper and packaging. Reusable grocery bags and canvas totes like our travel shoe/laundry bags are perfect for just that! Good for the environment and the gift receiver!
Find the right tools!
For extra neat gifts, use a cutting mat and ruler, rotary cutter and disappearing gift wrap tape! This will create clean edges and seamless folds. And to save some extra money this year, use old newspaper, book pages or kraft paper and decorate using your own style. Keep little ones busy painting, stamping and drawing on their own wrapping paper to open on Christmas morning.
Make it a new tradition!
Not everyone enjoys wrapping presents but adding friends, music and snacks can make it fun! Pop in a Christmas movie or turn up the holiday music and enjoy good food and time with the people you love. Have everyone bring their favorite wrapping materials and mix and match!
But most importantly, remember that its the friends and family in your life that matter most this holiday season!
Merry Christmas from all of us at the Secret Garden at Brys Estate!
