Gift Wrapping ideas

Today while baking cookies for my new physical therapist, I wanted to make them look good……then maybe they wouldn’t think I was such a flake for missing and forgetting my last 2 appts.  I knew I had some kraft boxes left over from Christmas and I have a ton of ribbon…….done.  They looked good……hopefully they tasted good…….but most importantly…….hopefully I redeemed myself.

But all that reminded me of this blog that Cindy sent me a while ago…….If you’re looking for ideas for gift giving or ways to wrap a gift………because you know it’s all in the presentation.

Givers Log…..you’ll love it!gift giving
These framed beauties look so cute on a wrapped gift……however I think that would have been a bit over the top had I given the PT a box of cookies with a photo of me on it.  :)  Especially since that was the first time I had met them.  But for other gifts………..this is a perfect idea.

 

Now maybe I could have really went for it and made my own tiered plate trays.  Do you think they would have thought I was like Martha, or just really odd?imageI love these.  They don’t look too terribly difficult to make.  Love the rose knob pull they used.  She shows a full tutorial on her blog.image  While you have your tools out………..look at this ribbon holder.  I’ve seen a lot of ribbon holders in my day, but this is a first for this.  imageShe shows you everything you need to know. She also has a few ideas for party favors, or teacher gifts.   I love these little wood sharpeners she added a monogram too.  All you need is a bit of mod podge.     And this idea…..great for all those germ infested elementary schools.  Fighting germs doesn’t have to be ugly.gift giving ideas
I’m a day late and a dollar short on this idea……..it would have been perfect for Earth Day!  This is also perfect for any gardener, teacher, etc….

Looks easy enough, yea?image

I have never seen a cake that has writing on it…….like this one anyway.  This is really what I should have made the physical therapist…..only going on about how sorry I was and how I just don’t miss appts and waste people’s time…..That would have been cool…..but probably over the top too.imageimageOr had I had more time, I could have used a plate that I sprayed chalk board paint on….then written my message…….

This blog will really come in handy for all times of the year.  Always nice to grab a new idea when you’re trying to impress someone.  :)

Have a great weekend.
