In the land of gift wrap we have the perfect accessories to match her rocker chic style! Our Caribbean Glitter Ombré Bags, Fade Into Indigo Ombré Tissue and Tutti Poly Glitter Bow want an invite to the next party, Kacey.

As Seen In: This Old House

While browsing through the latest issue of This Old House, we spotted some design elements that we recognized!IMG_1035-This Old House did a feature on Kelly Rinzema and a bedroom makeover she posted on her blog, The Lily Pad Cottage. In the write up, Kelly mentioned that she used gift bags as framed art work on her son’s wall. Those gift bags just happened to be created here in The Gift Wrap Company Studio for one of our partners, World Market!

An extra special birthday gift!

Last night during a local news segment, we noticed one of our wrap designs was used when a little girl unwrapped a very special birthday present. The present turned out to be her father who surprised her and secretly came home from a 9 month deployment in Korea. We’re so glad to see one of our products being used in such a touching event!

Below are a few stills from the segment, click here to watch the video.
