::Thank you:: to EVERYONE who came to my gift wrapping class last week at Gatehouse No.1!!! It was wonderful to have such a big crowd, and so many beautiful, smiling faces when I was sharing ideas for this season.

A quick re-cap: I like to use part of the gift as the topper on the package. It’s like gift-anticipation-overload! A couple of ideas: antlers are a hot item in home decor right now – choose a nice coffee table book for someone, and then tie the antler on top of the package – when it’s all open they can put the book on display on their living room table, AND the antler!

Another idea: I adore succulents, but artificial succulents are even easier to take care of! Choose a unique piece of pottery or a vase as the gift, and use artificial succulents on top of the wrapped package. When it’s all open: they have the plant & pottery ready to use!

Lastly, go outdoors and find natural elements to use on your gifts – like birch sticks. Small pieces of pine. I’ve been pinning lots of ideas lately on my “packaging” pinterest board – check it out!

Happy gift wrapping, friends! ‘Tis the season!!! xo.
