It's all about the packaging

I love nice packaging. Whilst trying to stay mindful of excessive, wasteful packaging, I do like nicely designed, beautifully restrained packaging. What I don't like is the nasty bits of black plastic that so much high-street jewellery seems to involve. Talk about not showing something in its best light.

So when buying jewellery to give as a gift, I always change the packaging, and have a selection of gift tags, luggage tags, postcards and tiny notelets at hand for the purpose. WHSmiths, Rymans, Paperchase and John Lewis are all good places to stock up at.

{attach the earrings to the card and include your birthday
message}

option}

{tie your postcards with ribbon or use small envelopes
for wrapping paper}
