In a fist-fight, I'm not sure which would win: My hatred of gift wrapping or my LOVE (obsession) with pretty packaging.
I suppose if the pretty packaging contains polka dots, it would win. Duh.
Wrapping usually gets the shaft here. Because by the time I buy it, hide it, find it (or not)...I'm to crabby to wrap it well.
So here's the solution. Pretty boxes!
Not a new idea, or my idea, I might add. Still brilliant.
Here are a few shots of the "secret santa" present I gifted this week...thank you Hobby Lobby for always having 50% off sales, as this box was equal to the price of a gift bag. Which to me, is not even a worthy comparison for the price!
Ornaments have also been 50% off this entire Christmas season, which makes zero sense to me. But I don't make the rules of retail, I just abide by them. Happily, if those rules include marking everything down by half.
Seriously, if you haven't been to Hobby Lobby at this point, I don't even know what to say.
Tulle has got to be the easiest ribbon of all time. And then, this years fun theme, the extra pieces of fabric tied to the tulle for a fun look. Since I've come to grips with the fact that I'm not so into traditional red and green, very few of you will be seeing those colors coming from me.
I like the black/white/green...that, GASP!, could be used the other 11 months of the year.
Well. I am off to construct 16 gingerbread houses, as it appears I am a glutton for holiday punishment. And teacher gifts for distribution tomorrow. Christmas party last night, Christmas party tomorrow night, wondertwins birthday on Friday. It's one of those weeks that's bringing my eye twitch back.
