Is it only me that gets giddy about the prospect of gift wrapping for men? In all the years of teaching gift wrapping, I have never yet come across anyone who is quite as passionate about wrapping a male present as a female one. Curious to really understand the reasons behind it, I’ve been asking the question and have been told unanimously in a nutshell….Gorgeous girly wrapping papers, ribbons and accessories are readily available and easy on the eye but that finding such things for men are far and few between. (A relief to know it’s that as opposed to you all believing men wouldn’t care if it was wrapped in a carrier bag!)
Yes, I have to say, really fabulous papers and accessories for men do take some searching for but honestly they are out there and as I like a challenge (and with gift wrap being just a tiny weeny obsession of mine…Have I mentioned that before?!!) I say to keep hunting them down and never give up! As if you do, you’d miss gems like this sublime sailing boat paper and ever so characterful quirky Car paper that we’ve handmade into a gift bag……
Of course, if you neither have the time nor the inclination to hunt them down then why not take a leaf out of our book (or better still your very own atlas etc) and create your own paper to suit! Not only will it save you time and money, you can be sure that they will really appreciate the thought behind it (well unless you cut up the football supplement he was saving to read later!!)
To inspire you….We’ve taken one book and we’ve wrapped it in 3 different styles…And …..Ta dah! Fabulous paper for the men in your life without leaving the house!! Happy wrapping everyone!
