Tuesday Tip/Trend - Unique Gift Containers

Still working on putting gifts together? Sometimes, the devil is in the details, a nice container can make even the simplest of gifts more special. Case in point, last week was all about teacher gifts...we have some amazing teachers and staff and we love to show how much we appreciate their hard work.

Loving this idea from BHG and can't wait to try it out...place your gift in a votive holder, top with a paper muffin liner, and tie with a colorful string or ribbon!
Giving a bottle of wine? Check out Martha's 3 different ways of making it fabulous!
It's a gift within a gift...wrap your treasure in a lovely scarf like this BOBO wrapping scarf.

How cute would this be as a gift of milk and cookies or other treats for the neighbors?
Do you have a ton of paper cups laying around? No worries, it too can become a great gift holder. Check out this tutorial from Zakka Life.
The king of creative gift containers? Garnish has an endless supply of creative ways to make everything look like Martha herself put it together! Look at how fun it is to package something as easy as cookie dough, in a soup container with a cute label?

  3. Yes, the upside down plastic containers are just so clever. In fact, the whole idea of using pantry or kitchen storage stuff as gift packaging is great!
