Is it just us or is this Holiday Season on steroids? Well, if you can't beat them...join them! We wanted to share with you three ways you can beef up your gift wrapping mojo. Our ideas touch on some topics near and dear to our hearts...eco-friendly, small business support, and eye popping results. Let's get started!
One of a Kind Gift Wrap
Before you buy that bundle of gift wrap from Target, hear us out. Many of our artisan comrades take their precious work and transform it into digital eye candy gift wrapping paper. They are ethical, local and worth your support. They work with printers that use either recycled paper, environmentally conscious dyes, etc. Check out businesses like Atwater Designs and Tina Crespo for two super stunning options that won't break the bank. Don't be surprised if your gift is unwrapped with much care and then framed as artwork.
Furoshiki Gift Wrap
This is near and dear to our hearts for many reasons. It's the gift that keeps on giving. It is a Japanese tradition to wrap gifts in a cloth that can either be reused by the gift giver or the recipient. You can make the cloth a beautiful scarf or tea towel. Here's a link for some great ideas on how to tie your cloth. And here is a link for creative ideas on materials you can use.
Minimalistic, Less is More Wrap
Most people do not realize that wrapping paper is not recyclable. The glitter, the shine is no bueno. If you grab some craft paper, pretty twine and green sprigs from outside you will really be doing everyone some justice. It would actual be packaging that can be recycled.
