They really are one of my favorite things. I'm not sure if it's the simplicity or the nostalgia, probably a bit of both. I remember the first Christmas my husband and I were dating. He showed up with a load of gifts neatly wrapped in brown packaging paper and finished off with lilac ribbon. My whole family was impressed with his wrap job(especially my grandma, if I remember correctly). Maybe this is what reminded me that my favorite things really are 'brown paper packages tied up with string'.
I have tried to carry this simply pleasing aesthetic to my packaging. Without being wasteful, I think it is very feasible to have a professional and appealing package; and I truly believe that this is much of the buying experience. Every customer deserves a special buying experience. Since I usually never meet my customers, I must make the online buying experience stand out. I feel that the best way to do this is by allowing a beautiful package to arrive at their door!
The package above is my typical baby shower packaging. These are my favorite gifts to do because they knit up quick and I have three different sizes of square boxes that I can stack on top of each other for a 'gift tower' (ok...I admit, the 'gift tower' is the true reason I like making baby gifts!).
So what's inside?
Here is the finished gender-neutral gift set. More on the individual knits later!
