Are you ever stuck for ideas when it comes to wrapping a gift and are looking for something new and innovative?
Do you sometimes want to go that extra mile and wrap your gift in something as personal as the gift itself?
Well, a couple of days ago I was sent a surprise in the post from a brand new company called wrap.me, who create (with a little help from you) beautiful personalised wrapping paper. I was not sure what to expect, but when it arrived, I set to Instagram to share it, and it was a huge hit with my followers, as well as on Twitter and Facebook.
The photographs on my wrapping paper were taken from my Instagram feed, mostly photographs from this summer actually. You can also use images from your computer, camera roll or Facebook, when you make your own paper. I loved the ones wrap.me chose, as they included the Gorgeous Miss A, our dog Bennett, and my best friends puppy Barney. They looked an impressive quality too, as all the photographs were taken with my phone, but were very clear, and as you can see, really popped with colour!
I’ve gone on the site to see if it was difficult to order, and it’s so simple, only having three stages to the process:
- You choose the images you would like (up to 30)
- Choose the border (black or white)
- Order either a single sheet ( £4.99) a small roll 1.8 metre (£9.99) or large 3 metre roll (£14.99)
That’s it, so quick and easy!
Once I had opened the little gift wrap.me had sent, I saw it was a pair of boring socks, which just goes to prove, that the wrapping paper can be more exciting than the present. Especially when my socks looked like they were made for a clown!
There are lots of times I would use this wrapping paper, and I think it would be brilliant to use for wedding gifts, with photographs of the bride and groom before they were married, or even as children. How about weddings, anniversaries and special birthdays, or the birth of a baby with photographs of the Mum whilst she was pregnant. I can just imaging using it for my eldest daughters 16th (in 4 years time) with baby and toddler photographs on, wouldn’t that be funny?
If you are looking for inspiration there are some lovely examples of wrapping paper on the site, but really the best thing is decide who you are going to buy a gift for, and let your imagination and photographs do its thing.
