I enjoy doing anything creative, so naturally I love to wrap gifts, but mostly love giving them and try to create a unique gift if possible. There is nothing like getting a gift that is so perfect for you and you love everything about it, from the way it was presented to you, to the packing, and of course the gift!
I bought a large frame from Crate & Barrel that had a custom mat where several size photos could go. I made sure that the frame would be a good fit for the couples home style. I took their wedding invitation and copied a couple of times so that I could create some custom cards using their invitation, quotes, monograms and their names.
I cut their invitation anchor and added it with their names to tie the entire look together. It is these details that make this gift look professional and very special.
I never give a gift in a bag, and with the scale of this gift I had no other choice but to use paper.
The couple recently moved to the coastal area, so I liked the idea of also giving them a fresh set of Ralph Lauren beach towels. I used a stripped paper, but kept things similar with the bows and starfish. To combine the two gifts I added an extra layer of the fair trade floral paper to this gift.
