Creative Gift Wrap It can be fun to come up with creative gift wrap options to present your item to the recipient in. Many of us are in a hurry to get this part of the process done though and so we don’t take as much time with it as we should. People love to see the gift wrap as much as what is inside of it though. Should the gift be sitting there for some time such as under the Christmas tree, the gift wrap can certainly get them very excited about the upcoming event. One of the best tips is to make sure you use good quality gift wrap paper. Some of it is so thin it will end up coming apart at the corners before you even have the gift completely wrapped. The end result is going to be an ugly patch job that you won’t like either. This type of gift wrap is lower priced but look for good quality. Find something that also fits the occasion. Tape is often used to keep gift wrap in place and it can be something you don’t like to look at. There is transparent tape too that you can use to prevent this from being a problem. You may find that the shine gift wrap is pretty but you do need to be careful. It doesn’t fold as nicely as other types of gift wrap. It can end up with creases where you don’t want them and even crinkles instead of a smooth finish. The larger the size of the item the harder it will be to creatively wrap it in this manner. There are places online where you can get customized gift wrap so that may be something you want to check out. You can add pictures to designs that they already have offered. You can also get names, dates, and other information placed onto the gift wrap. It really depends on what you are searching for. Add something unique that no one else can offer to your gift wrap. For example let the children dip their hands in finger paint and then place them on plain white wrapping paper. This is a terrific way to personalize it for a gift on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or Grandparent’s Day.
