What better way to make family and your friends feel special than inviting them into your new Parry Custom Home and taking time to wrap their presents and make them almost too pretty to open. Your wrapping will go beyond the box and your friends will truly feel special when they see the time you took to not only carefully select their gift, but to wrap it as if it’s the gift itself.
Of course your gift should be a reflection of your feelings toward the recipient, but here are some tips for to make the wrapping just as special as the gift.
Take the time to think about how you want to wrap the present, just as you would the gift. You spend more than five minutes on the gift; spend time on planning how you want to wrap the gift. Make it as thoughtful as the gift and you will enhance the gift experience.
Match the wrap to the recipient: Take advantage of what you know about the person. Do they have a favorite color, hobby or treat? Put it on the package.
Make it playful. Do you have a joke between you and the recipient or know something special about them? If they love cards, find a beautiful deck of cards to place on the top. If golf is their passion, wrap the gift in Astroturf or paper that looks like grass and top with golf balls.
Make the wrapping a window to the gift: If you are giving a mixer, wrap it in pages from an old cookbook with measuring spoons attached to the outside.
Think in Layers. Depth enhances visual interest. Mix papers and make bows with multiple ribbons or add netting.
Do not confine yourself to conventional giftwrapping supplies. You are not limited to wrapping paper and ribbon. You might use fabric or old maps. Look to nature for inspiration, such as pine needles or pressed flowers and pinecones. Look for dimensional elements, like toy cars or teddy bears to top off your present.
Every gift that you give to your family or friends is an inspiration and a way to express you imagination in decorating.
