Aside from the finishing touches and attention to detail...here are a few of my other favorite tips when it comes to gifting!
The Art of Simplicity - Less Is Always More!
I am a firm believer in simplicity. The items you select need to help tell a story and send the right message…they need to work well together. Whether you are a graphic designer, a gifting company, or an individual just wanting to send the perfect gift, it’s important to think about the scale of items, color ways, and how all the components work together. Don’t make the mistake of trying to add more to improve your gift. That’s a big “no, no” in my book. If I’m frustrated with a design or a specific box, I start by taking things away. There really is such beauty in simplicity and it is important not to overthink it. Follow my gifting motto - “less is always more!”
Feeling Stuck? Turn To Friends & Family
Trying to put together the perfect gift, but feeling a little stuck? You are not alone. Almost everyone wants to find that special and unique gift that sends a personal message to the recipient. I recommend asking the recipient’s friends and/or family for advice. And if you don’t know the family personally…you can always turn to social media. Yes, the clues are usually always there…you just have to do a little digging, and trust me; it makes a world of difference.
Get Creative…Add Natural Beauty!
Why not add a little foliage to the outside of your nicely packaged gift box? If you are shipping a gift box from Salt & Pepper Co. (or any gift for that matter) we always offer you the option of adding a small bundle or few sprigs of dried flowers for that extra special touch. If you are hand-delivering your gift, adding fresh flowers or greenery is a huge plus and it’s easy to do. Personalize your gift even more by selecting a flower that your recipient truly loves! Everyone has a “favorite” when it comes to flowers!
