(This post is dedicated to my best friend. Happy birthday!)
Well. I’ve decided to end this fiasco right now.
If you think that you could relate to the aforementioned situations – then venture with me as we go along the road of frugal yet sincere gift-giving.
1. Say it with a poem!
Buy a manila paper as a wrapper. They are very cheap compared to the generic gift wrappers. Next, have some markers with you. Doodle a poem dedicated to the person you’re giving the gift to. Finish it up with a handmade ribbon.
2. Pictures are the way to go.
You can still buy a manila paper for your gift wrapper. Then, look for a picture which symbolizes your relationship with the person you’re giving the gift to. It could be a picture of the two of you, a picture of your date, a picture of a beautiful scenery you guys both had the pleasure of viewing, or a picture of a favorite food of the both of you.
3. Tag – you’re it!
You can also look for awesome new ways to caption your gift to them. Think of a witty tag. For example, you’re giving a lotion as a gift. Why not say “Hope our friendship becomes smoother as time goes by!”? Or you’re giving chocolates to a lover – say “You are as sweet as this gift!”
