The first in a six-part series, Diane is here to share how she wraps her gifts, and one particularly memorable box she received…
The best gift wrap I ever received was on my birthday, New Year’s Eve. I was turning 29 and my boyfriend, who is now my husband, handed me a Band-Aid box. Inside, there were 29 loose diamonds ! I thought they were crystals !
I love a gift that surprises, so during the holidays it is fun to wrap your gifts in ways that are beautiful and unexpected. But my favorite is always to wrap with plain brown paper, so I can draw on the packages and write personal messages. Then I always tie them closed with a very long bow. It is fun for children, too.
Whatever you are giving, and whether it’s for a friend, a lover or yourself, remember as you are choosing your gifts, how to pack them and where to give them, generosity is the best investment… Enjoy it All !
