A gift bag is the easy go-to for a quick gift and the obvious choice for busy procrastinators (like myself!) We all know that tissue stuffing completes the look, BUT the way tissue is arranged  in a gift bag really says a lot. It can say- “I put this together in the car on the way over here” or “I have painstakingly selected the perfect compliment for the perfect gift!”

Everyone always comments on the artful way we stuff gift bags with tissue for our displays and catalog photos. The truth is that there is no right or wrong way to do this, but with a few quick tricks you can create a simply fabulous presentation for your present. You can probably even do it in the car on the way to the party.

Can’t contain my joy

I want to go to THIS party!

As most know I am a fan of The Container Store. Not only are they one of our most treasured partners, they are also a really great company in general and  most importantly one of my favorite stores to poke around in.

Just this past week they sent out a funtastic email blast  “Get inspired! Must-Have Party Gifts & Ideas” with a link to a really great bridal shower guide that is so well done and just plain fun to look at (and not just because of the various TGWC designs and products who modeled for the shoot!).

I have to share! Enjoy!

Our very own Libertine Stripe and Ikat Gift Wrap strike a perfect pose in this great guide from Container Store. We are so proud!

SWITCHED AT BIRTH? Butterfly Effect

Still chasing the yawns after a late Oscar night so I thought maybe I was seeing things when I looked through Racked National’s sneek peek at  Ocar after-party dressings. I had to do a double take at this dress worn by Saoirse Ronan, (Image via Getty)

Could it be a butterfly effect?

Wait, this reminds me of something, could it really be…

A perfect Nest for all Baby’s best photographs! The Nesting Collection from Pepperpot, a division of The Gift Wrap Company

We shoot some great theme shots for our catalogs with the help of our talented photographer friends of Cutlip Designs. I thought I would share some of these fun shots. We have such a great collection of photos and even the out-takes deserve a share! Since March is baby month here at TGWC I thought I would begin my sharing with some great baby themed shots.

~Enjoy the peek!
