Christmas Packaging

This year for Christmas I got really creative with my packaging and gift wrapping. It was super fun and such an experience thinking outside the box since I am an unpaid intern, everything had to be cute, quaint, and inexpensive. Baskets for Christmas is a great gift idea if you’re looking for something to get super creative with. Here is my Christmas basket this year. It’s great for either a guy or a lady!

In this basket I put a loaf of bread from Panera wrapped in a cute kitchen towel from the local dollar store, a pound of coffee from Starbucks [Christmas Blend Espresso Roast], handmade chocolate covered pretzels, and handmade blank notecards. The notecards I stamped with different everyday stamps like: ‘thinking of you’, ‘thank you’, ‘hello’, and flowers or a bicycle. I added the ribbon and sparkly acorns to the front of the basket to spruce it up a bit. So easy and so fun!

The next package I wrapped up was this year’s five dollar gift exchange package. I did a snowflake rustic theme. It seemed to work because this was the gift everybody wanted. I think it was the twine that attracted them! haha.
