Real Life Gifting: Friends Christmas


I have a few friends that we like to say “we have known each other since before we were born” because our moms met in college and are best friends to this day. Every year we do a Secret Santa that is color themed.  This year is yellow and we allowed gold to fall in that category too (thank goodness).   My gift this year goes to my friend and roommate, Emily! Emily recently bought a condo so I thought a few items to decorate her new place would be perfect!


And of course the wrapping has to match the theme too! I used our metallized brown kraft in Golden Dune as my base.  Tied our new Glitter Satin ribbon around and added 2 tags and a Lotus Bow.  The tags I used are our perennial favorite Luxe Gift Tags in gold glitter and then added a gold glitter Die-Cut Star for something extra!

SPOTLIGHT: Black & White & Kraft

bottle birthdayOne of this year’s easiest color trends to follow is the simple yet elegant, crafty yet classy black, white & kraft palette. We love it with touches of metallic gold and silver or even a pop of red to warm things up. These colors can say “Happy Birthday”, “Congratulations”, “Happy Anniversary” and “Let’s Party” all at the same time. When timeless versatility is your goal, these are your go-to gift wrap solutions:

2016 Trends & Inspiration: Sweet Petites

The Sweetest Thing?

Perfectly petite prints all new for 2016!

Size & scale played a big role in the design construction of our Everyday 2016 line. We love the oversized florals used in the Garden Blush collection, but also developed an affinity for designs on a much smaller scale. Tiny geometric patterns in soft, gentle pastel colors translate perfectly into our collection for Baby. Fine tooth textures create warm, fuzzy feelings while repetition of line and shape maintain order. We incorporated this trend into all categories of our wrapping range, proving that this year, we are really sweet on petites!

Stars in our eyes for…cosmic trends!

The popularity of space movies and science fiction fantasy isn’t just for the ultra nerdy anymore! People everywhere are adorning themselves (and their spaces) with space themed art and objects. Both kids and adults can get on board with fresh futuristic themes of time and space travel. Colors are moody and metallic, with all the shades of the spectrum. Holograms and foils are everywhere, and planetary icons abound. It’s a whole new world, and the truth is out there…We couldn’t be happier to introduce our Galaxy wrap & bags, and emphasize the need for glitter toppers & tissue more than ever!


The force is strong in this trend!
