Happy Valentines Day! I always buy gifts for my relatives on Valentine’s Day. I can always find the perfect gift, but I cannot always wrap the perfect gift. I can never seem to get the wrapping quite right. Usually it ends up as a wrapping fail. Where to cut, where to crease? It shouldn’t be that difficult, right? It is only three supplies: wrapping paper, scissors and tape. I found this video on YouTube on How to Wrap the Perfect Gift which I wanted to share you. It has helped me out quite a bit. I feel like a nicely wrapped gift is a kind gesture to show someone how much you care. I also like to finish off the gift with a bow or some sort of unique embellishment. For example, if I am giving a book, I like to include a Penless bookmark on top. I can let them know how much I enjoyed this book (without giving away the ending). For some of my relatives, a nice bottle of wine is appreciated. Instead of wrapping that, I put a Penless wine tag with a nice picture of us, or a funny video on the QR Code, which is sure to bring a smile to their face. In fact, so many people have commented on the Wine Tag, that I now buy the Penless heart greeting card and give that with all my Valentine’s Day gifts. If I happen to run out of the heart greeting cards, I always have a supply of the Penless heart stickers on hand. They work the same way. Basically, the sticker acts as a card. It is fun and it is personal. I get more comments on the card or sticker then the gift itself. Gift giving should not be stressful – it should be fun. If you have fun with it, then the person you gave the gift to will probably have fun with it too.
Enjoy Valentine’s Day. Have fun and be creative when wrapping your gifts this year!
