When a reindeer-adorned bag just won’t cut it, we’ve got a few simple hacks to help. Best Dressed Gift might not be an actual award, but we can pretend, can’t we?
For the Pinterest Queen
Dip a pencil eraser in white paint and dot it across brown postal paper. Just like that, you have one-of-a-kind packaging. Don’t be surprised if a photo of your handiwork ends up on her next inspiration board.
For the Wordsmith
Does she always drop obscure vocab in everyday conversation? Pull out the crossword section of your nearest newspaper and use it as wrapping paper. Tie on a pen with festive twine so she can show off her puzzle skills.
For Everyone Else
Add a last-minute wow factor to any gift in under five minutes. Grab an evergreen sprig for the traditionalist, a strip of lace from an old dress for the romantic, or a monogram letter for your preppiest friend.
