wrap up something special

Just a couple of quick ideas if you are in need of a gift this weekend for a special lady in your life.

Head to a craft store or even a dollar store and pick up a plain wood hinged box. Then fill it with little gifts like these.





For someone who loves to wrap pretty gifts and send happy mail, fill a box with stationery, gift tags, vintage stamps (or current ones), baker's twine and little embellishments such as mini clothespins and cotton spun toadstools. 

I love gifting like this because you can have fun with it. The box below is filled with a soy candle, soaps wrapped in japanese paper, a pretty bracelet and a favorite hand cream.



Tie your box with string or ribbon and add a simple handmade tag embellished with my favorite thing - Washi tape and there you have it, a pretty and personal gift to give.


There are so many ways you can fill these boxes. 
Here are some more ideas:

*For the gardener - pretty garden gloves, jute twine, floral scissors

*For the baker - pretty recipe cards, bakers twine, parchment muffin cups, vanilla beans

*For the crafter - pretty craft supplies


Hope this helps if you are stuck on a gift idea.

PS: Toadstool cards, baker's twine, tags, mini clothes pins and vintage stamps are in my shop or will be soon.
