Have you ever take that love languages quiz?? Gift giving is number one for me. It's how I show love and how I receive it. And it has nothing to do with how expensive or extravagant the gift is. I just like to know that I am thought about and known. When Matt comes home with a pack of orange tic tack for me, my heart immediately swells. He knows that I love me some orange tic tack (let's not talk about how fast I consume said pack) and I love knowing that when he saw them in line at the market, he thought about me.
One of my favorite things about gift giving is the wrapping. I think that a great wrapping job seriously makes a present. Opening a really pretty package is a gift in and of itself. I rarely buy the standard gift bag/card because I really enjoy creating unique wrapping and to be honest, it's usually much cheaper to do a diy wrapping job. Grab a roll of kraft wrapping paper to meet every gift giving need and then add personal touches. And a tag. That's a must.
Oh hey....here's a little cutie....
It's just a little guy... 3 1/4" long.
Someone looks ready to party....
I sell these little guys over at my shop (www.elliebelliehandmade.etsy.com) in packs of 8. I am also happy to customize them for you if you would prefer a different little saying.
Of course, these gorgeous pictures are done by Sarah Scheidler. She's brill.
