I am a very fortunate lady and receive some pretty spectacular gifts...along with those, I get some wonderful wrapping paper that I keep (just one more thing I have to find space for!). Is that weird? I fold up the tissue paper, keep all of the ribbons and cute bags so I can use them again. I keep them in two woven boxes that my mom sent me from Maui. If you receive gifts from me, more than likely the wrapping has been 're-gifted'. I believe in using what you have and re-using things like paper and ribbon.
Three of my best girlfriends from San Francisco are coming to visit me in Vail this weekend and I put together some fun gift bags for them so that they can survive the dry/cold weather.
They're just little gifts like a water bottle, Luna bars, moisturizer samples and lip glosses....
But I made them look really special by using luxury gift wrap - Hermes and Cartier ribbons and a Chanel shopping bag. Hopefully my friends won't mind that there aren't any luxury goods in there!
