Over the last couple of months, I've started paying more attention to how my orders are sent to customers - I think part of the fun of buying online is finding parcels in the mailbox, opening the envelope, and the joy that comes from special details. I know I always appreciate a handwritten note, special wrapping or a cute little detail on the envelope, and I'm sure my customers do as well.
These are a couple of little gifts I recently wrapped, for lovely people, including customers who request extra special gift wrap.
They're both wrapped in standard Pocket Carnival recycled brown paper, with a little bit of wrapping paper I've saved from gifts I've received (yes, I'm a gift wrap saver!) However, all my friends and relative have been instructed that, in order to save the world, they must not wrap my gifts, hence my gift wrap stash has become rather depleted.
So, I've found some gorgeous recycled options available on Etsy!
Helena from Little Mo & Friends sells the most beautiful products made from 100% Post Consumer Recycled Paper. Her note paper and postcards are gorgeous, but this wrapping paper is so sweet! Available at Little Mo & Friends on Etsy.
How amazing are these gift tags? Made from vintage French magazines, they're so beautiful. One of those things that I always feel are too beautiful to give away, unless the recipient is someone very special. Available on Etsy, from RoyalBuffet.
Ducks always have a special spot in my heart, from many happy days as a child spent feeding ducks in the park. These sweet duck gift tags are made from recycled brown card, and childeren's book pages. So cute! From Koot, on Etsy.
