Put It in Writing
Gift giving is a science. To do it the right way, you’ll need to have all of the right tools. After wrapping your gifts and packages, use a Sharpie to clearly label and address any gifts you’re shipping out. Turn it up a notch and add a personalized message or even some fun doodles.
Stick to It
Every gift giver knows the importance of having quality tape on hand when it’s time to wrap gifts and the last thing you want to do is run out of tape half way through gift wrapping. Get more than you think you’ll need and keep a stock pile ready for the holiday season.
Skip the standard. The holidays are the perfect time of year to leave ordinary behind. Jazz up the look of your traditional holiday cards and wow friends and family with envelopes that are a clear reflection of the occasion.
Show You Care
A greeting card shows you care by relaying what you’re feeling into words. These cute messages may make a better impression than the gifts themselves. When the thought counts, a perfect card always comes through in a big way.
Handmade Items Rock
For thoughtful additions to big gifts think of including some handmade items. Involve the entire family by making customized cards, posters, and decorations for a family gathering. Kids love being crafty, so help them create a keepsake for special occasions to come.
Packing tape doesn't just come in clear anymore. You now have packing tape options specially designed for many different occasions, such as heart themed for love, candle themed for birthday celebrations, or Christmas tree themed for the winter holidays. Select the tape that matches the occasion to add a fun, personal touch to your gift.
Personalize Mailing Labels
A personalized mailing label may contain a colorful icon off to the side in the shape of someone's favorite animal or sport. Print a soccer ball on your soccer player's label, or go for a pair of pink ballet slippers for the ballerina in your life.
Wrap it in Bubbles
Protect any fragile gifts by lovingly wrapping breakables in bubble plastic. In addition to that, layers of bagged air, paper and packing peanuts help keep items from sliding around in the packaging. Include packing peanuts in colors such as red, pink, green, blue and yellow for a festive touch.
Accurate Weights Help You Budget
If you plan to send packages regularly or over a long period of time, you’ll want to invest in a postal scale, which gives you accurate weights so you can print your own labels. Save gas and time by paying for shipping online and having your packages picked up at home.
