Welcome back to my 31 Days of party Planning. This my friend is Day 26 of those 31 Days. If you haven’t done so yet, head on over to here to see the rest of my series!
I wanted to take this moment to talk about gift wrapping. I myself enjoy wrapping gifts, the thought that goes behind the gift and the process of giving said gift to the celebrant. There are several ways to wrap your gift. One being a gift bag. Gift bags are an easy and cute way to give the birthday child their gift. There are tons of gift bags as well as tissue paper that can coordinate with almost any theme. It’s especially handy when it comes to difficult shaped gifts. Like a football or a tiara! 😉
Another great way to wrap a gift is with gift wrapping paper (of course). When I can, I prefer to wrap my present. I find that there are many awesome wrapping paper available that are actually inexpensive and coordinates with any party. If you can, invest in brown kraft paper. In the past I used tons of brown kraft paper to wrap many presents. My sister in law also uses brown kraft paper and even creates her own designs on the paper. I’ve used brown (and white) kraft paper for years and i loooovve it! I’ve decorated them with stickers, markers, stamps, you name it! I’ve even had my kids decorate for their friends and classmates… cute cute cute 😉 and you can’t get any more personal that kids art, am I right?
Another great idea is to invest in several sized boxes. Not just shirt boxes but also square boxes, rectangular shaped boxes and also hat boxes. Boxes are super handy to use and perfectly fit gifts and wraps easily. A win!
Whenever you get a chance, you should head on over to your local, Target, Dollar store or any shop you fancy and start to invest on some pretty awesome packages, tissue paper, wrapping paper and even ribbons. Using real ribbons is a great way to wrap your gifts and looks way better than a pre-made bow. They’re not expensive and come in many coordinating colors. Plus, It really classes up any package. Inexpensive and classy = win!
