Guys presents


Okay, so you know when you see gift sets at Target or Wal-Mart and they kinda just look cheap, in their cheap boxes, with plastic? Like who really wants to open that.. they are most likely going to say, "Oh wow, they spent like eight dollars, and got me a gift set". There's a much better, and cheaper way to do it! I like to take all the stuff out of the package, place it in a box, with fun straw or paper, that way it looks like you bought each on individually, and spent a little more money, heh. (My little secret, don't tell!) But it's really not about the money to me, it's more on how the present is wrapped, and how much time someone put into the present to make it all nice-and-pretty for me! Today's examples are for guys, I bought a gift set at Target for around $8, greeeat buy, especially for Old Spice! But instead of wrapping the prepackaged box up, I decided to take everything out, place it in a better box, so it doesn't look cheap. Then I wrapped it in 'nautical' looking paper, to make it look a little more guyish. The second package is a small gift, but doesn't the wrapping look so cute! That lobster tag came in a whole bag of tags that were only 75 cents at a Yard Sale! Amazing-
