As Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, many of us are scurrying around for a quick idea on gift ideas for our other half. Whilst you may have some great gift ideas already, don’t forget that handmade items are always received with a lot of joy and it is worth spending a little extra time creating something that can make your gift that extra bit special.
Gift bags are a great way to add some personalization to a gift. For instance, if you are giving gifts to your boyfriend, you can get a drawstring bag that can be used to contain the gifts. You can also customize the bag by embroidering their name on that bag with the help of companies like Mato & Hash that provide embroidery services. Your boyfriend would most probably love the gift as they will understand that the gift has been carefully thought out and bought for the occasion. There are also many other ways that you can achieve the perfect bag.
You’ll need a Paper Bag
First of all you’ll need a bag to decorate. This may be as simple as finding some paper bags that are lying around the house and starting with those. If you don’t already have some paper bags to hand, you can either buy some or make one yourself (which is super easy).
Decorating the Bag
This is the stage that you can really go wild. You can go either low budget, and use only things around the home, or you can go all out and purchase fancy papers, stickers (like the ones seen on StickerYou), ribbons and more that can be used to make your bag the ultimate gift bag.
If you are on a smaller budget, you can use wrapping paper and old cards to make your gift bag special. Here is some inspiration for your own personalised gift bag:
You may even choose to go all out and order some custom paper bags especially for Valentines Day. You could then sell the rest online to other people who may love your design!
