How to use old clothes or newspaper to make your present stand out

by Bogsha Gifting

When you are giving someone a gift, you want to make sure that it stands out from the crowd. If there is likely to be a lot of presents on display at the same time, you want your gift to be instantly recognisable. If yours is the only gift that will be seen at a certain point of time, you still want it to be special. When you give someone a gift, it is about a lot more than the present itself and this is why there is a lot to be said for thinking about the wrapping or packaging for your present.

There is no denying that special wrapping paper or a stylish gift box can make a good present look great. There are some ways to wrap a gift that will give the recipient cause to pause before they tear open the present. There will even be times when the recipient decides to carefully unwrap the present to ensure they can hold on to the wrapping paper for later. If you have made the recipient approach the unwrapping process with great care and attention, you can be proud of your efforts when it comes to wrapping the gift.

A personal touch goes a long way

Of course, you don’t need fancy wrapping paper or the most elaborate bows and ribbons to cause a scene when it comes to making your present stand out. Sometimes, a very small personal touch is all that matters when it comes to informing someone how much you care about them. For some people, newspapers provide an affordable and functional way to wrap a present but for other folk, they create an opportunity to provide a personalised touch to any gift.

If someone has access to old newspapers, wrapping a present in a newspaper bearing the date of a person’s birthday or of a special occasion will be a stunning touch. If a person has a great interest in a sports team, a musician, celebrity or a local area, wrapping their present in a newspaper which discusses that team, person or area will be a very thoughtful gift. This style of wrapping is a perfect example why giving the best present isn’t always about money. Showing that you know a person and that you have taken the time to provide them with something that is important to them can be the best gift of all times.

You don’t have to use newspaper to provide a personalised touch to a gift, there is no limit on what you can do. If you have old clothes that evoke special memories for a person, wrap their gift in that or at least use a piece of the material to use as a bow or ribbon around the gift. You want to connect with the recipient and something out of the ordinary can help you achieve this.
