Hi all! Those of you who know me will know I am pretty obsessed with pretty packaging and adorning my gifts in a way that shows attention to the tiniest detail, I place the same importance on dressing a gift as I do on dressing my clients for that special occasion!
So you will understand that when a person close to me offered me some rather expensive and beautiful gifts unwrapped as they had been extreemly buisy! That much as I love this person dearly I felt deflated and a little cheated. It suddenly hit me that the ritual of unwrapping a gift almost transends what the gift might be, it's that antisipation. That gentle jelly like quiver in your tummy, that takes us back to being a kid when we discovered new things every day and delighted in the unknown!
With valentines day just a hop, skip and a jump away I felt it would be rather fun, to explore some of my favourite gift wrapping looks and pay homage to blogger, A Gift Wrapped Life!
