Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things!
I can never resist a brown paper parcel tied up with string. Functional, yet pretty; the perfect backdrop to ribbons and gift tags… Funnily enough it was my husband who first introduced me to wrapping things in brown paper. It was always his failsafe option for wrapping presents, and now it’s mine too.
So, I was intrigued when Brown Paper Packages got to in touch to ask me if I’d like to try out one of their seasonal gift wrapping boxes. Each subscription box contains paper, tags, decorations and cards.
I really liked the idea of this as I’m always that person who forgets to buy birthday cards until the last minute. And despite my previously mentioned love of brown paper, I invariably end up with only dinosaur or Hello Kitty wrapping paper left in the cupboard. A box delivered to your home containing everything you’ll need to wrap five gifts is perfect for the absent minded.
Hayley, who runs Brown Paper Packages, says she loves spending time making sure her wrapping is as beautiful as the gift inside. Each of her wrapping boxes will always include paper, tags and seasonal decorations and five cards with envelopes. Your first box will also include double sided tape and some gift wrapping tips to help get you started.
My summer box was a delight to unpack – as soon as I opened it the smell of lavender filled the room!
Brown Paper Packages wrapping boxes are available as a subscription, or you can purchase them individually each season. Click here to find out more about what’s inside.
