Gift giving is a thoughtful gesture that is fun for both the giver and receiver. So what makes a gift go from being beyond good to great? Here are a few suggestions for how to take the next gift you give to a higher level of wow-ness!
PUT YOUR PERSONAL SPIN ON THE WRAPPING
Here we’ve created a retro-cool vibe by using colored tissue paper wrapped at an angle along our Blow Darts Target Set. Super cost effective and easy to do, just start with one color of tissue paper* placed at a 25-45 degree angle, wrap it once diagonally around the box then use a little magic tape to keep it in place. Continue layering over the base color with with other colors and voilà, you’ve got a dynamic looking gift that you’ll be proud to give and they’ll be even more excited to open!
Colored tissue paper can be found at Paper Source, Target, or a one-stop shopping grocery store like Fred Meyer/Kroger.
(*Tip - You may need to use a double layer of tissue paper if it’s easy to see through to the graphics on the box)
CURLING RIBBON CAN DO MORE THAN JUST MAKE A BOW
Running curling ribbon through a scissor blade makes a nice bow but when you use it in different ways the effect can be dramatic. Here we’ve used curling ribbon in color blocks then repetitively wrapped it over kraft paper, printed kraft wrapping paper or colored tissue paper to give our Mischief Maker Slingshots that extra wow factor.
We found the colorful curling ribbon at Fred Meyer/Kroger. The printed dot kraft wrapping paper is from Target and the unprinted back side of it was used for the gift on the far left. Lastly, yes, the box on the right does not use ribbon but the foil ombre dot tissue paper from Paper Source makes a simply beautiful presentation.
GIVE A GIFT THAT HAS THAT LITTLE EXTRA SOMETHING
It always feels wonderful to give a gift that has that little extra value to it. It’s the attention to the details of design, quality materials, cool colors and encouraging active play that checks all of the boxes for us of what makes a gift great!
