3. Attention Getting Packaging
Try to find objects that can be used as containers for presenting your gifts. Turn them into gift baskets. Let me give you some examples:
a. Ceramics- Bowls, mugs, tea cup and saucer, plates, trays, planters...
b. Any kind of basket
c. Hats turned upside down
d. Boxes lined with decorative paper on inside and out
After deciding on a container, fill it with some sort of tissue paper or shred. Orgainize contents of your basket and use clear or colored gift basket wrap to seal it. Attach ribbon, a bow, maybe a card, flowers, greenery, or candy to it at top. You could even attach an object that ties in to theme of gift.
You know what people really like? It's to know that someone cared enough about them to put some thought into their gift. So, I guess it really is "thought" that counts.
