I received a comment from Jo 2 days ago, who asked how I would pack a small gift like a lipstick or lipgloss for friends. I thought it so interesting that it deserved its own post 🙂
Here are some ways I pack small items as gift. I’m not very good with gift wrapping so I always take the easiest and simplest route 🙂 Whilst this is coming in just nicely for the Christmas gift-giving season, you can use the ideas for any gift you want to give… like to me for instance… *ahem* shameless yes I know 😉
For purposes of demonstration I’m using a nail polish bottle so you have an idea of size. This isn’t going to any friend 🙂
Place in a small Gift bag
If you have a pretty organza bag on hand you’re halfway there! Sometimes you might receive gifts in such bags too. Save them so you don’t have to buy them! Wrap your gift in some layers of tissue paper (or not) and place in the bag. Tada!
Tip: You can get these organza bags quite inexpensively in bulk if you go to wholesale shops or craft shops. Try Petaling St. Chinatown (Malaysia) or Bangkok (Thailand) where I usually purchase mine.
