When you receive a party invitation, you take one look, and you know what to expect. Gift wrapping works the same way. It sets the tone, creates anticipation and prepares the receiver for what’s inside.
Imagine a gift with crumpled paper and tape all over, presented to you by a child. Don’t you love it already?! Then think about the gift that never got wrapped, but was handed to you in a bag with the words “I didn’t have time to wrap it, so here…” How do you feel about that?
And don’t tell anyone, but I believe that often a great wrapping job can save a so-so gift.
With only a week until Christmas, it’s time to wrap it up! The good, the bad and the ugly. Here are a couple ideas to get you going.
