Holiday Loot Bags/Silver Bells
Posted on by .
They say that with any good gift, it’s the thought that counts. Sure, that’s true. But there’s one other important element that can also push any ho-hum gift over-the-top to become a ho-ho-ho holiday classic: packaging! Sounds simple, sure. But it’s amazing what a difference a little decorative detail can make on an otherwise mediocre gift. It’s like putting your gift through a makeover montage in a 90s teen rom-com. The receiver won’t believe their eyes!
