Add the Gift Tag
Whether it’s part of a heartfelt note or a succinct “To” and “From,” everyone likes seeing their name on a present! If the rest of your wrapping is simple, this can be a nice place to add a flourish of creativity.
• Cards. Secure your card to the package with tape. This is especially important if your gift is one of many and will be opened later—nothing incites Miss Manners panic like receiving a lovely gift and not knowing whom to thank!
• Gift tags. If you are using a gift tag, you can thread it through the end of the ribbon before you tie your bow. Use a hole-punch if the tag doesn’t have a hole of its own.
• Write the name on the wrapping. If you prefer not to use a gift tag, you may write the recipient’s name directly on the package. Try a metallic marker for the holidays, or a bright paint pen in a contrasting color. Experiment with fancy script or oversize letters for a bold, graphic look.
