One of the best things about Christmas is choosing gifts for people that you think they’ll love, right? Well, once I’ve done that, I love wrapping presents nicely, making everything coordinate colour wise and adding lovely bows, ribbons etc to make things look beautiful. So when Pretty Gifted asked if I fancied reviewing some of their personalised gift wrap I was really excited to see what it’s like.
The website is easy to use, you choose the colour of your paper, the colour of your text, your font, whether to add a symbol, and what you want the text to say. £7.95 gets you two large sheets-I don’t think this is a bad price given how much you can customise the product and for the wrapping for something special (maybe a 30th, or a Wedding-some kind of big deal occasion) I’d happily spend that.
I was quite clever with what I ordered-as I’m a freelance photographer as well as a blogger, I knew if I was organised enough I could use the personalised paper in photoshoots with clients over Christmas, and so I chose the message ‘Merry Christmas from Laura Haley Photography’ for my paper. I had red paper with copper coloured writing, and chose the font ‘Lulu’ in medium, with a Christmas Tree symbol. The finished product arrived within a week and came with two gift tags and a pen-though I was a bit sad that these were navy blue and silver, and so didn’t match the colour scheme of my paper. It would be useful to be able to choose the colour of these too, if I’m being picky.
The paper is really thick, brilliant quality, and one sheet wrapped these three ‘presents’ (okay so I did my actual wrapping in September and therefore had to wrap fake gifts for these photos-ahh well) with some left over. The second sheet is still in my cupboard and I’ll probably use it next year.
What occasion would you choose personalised gift wrap for?
