Gift Wrap Collections
Ah, the disregarded art of gift wrapping. Anyone who tells you that a gift is not infinitely more exciting and appreciated when it is beautifully presented is telling blatant fibs. After all, if you’re going to take the time to demonstrate affection and respect with a gift, it is just as well that said gift is also given the respect and affection it deserves, isn’t it?
Each of these beautifully designed and decidedly striking books of gift wrap is based around an appealing theme, and a good variety of themes guarantees that you can wrap your gifts with the recipient’s particular tastes and interests in mind.
Each book contains 10 sheets of gift wrap, incorporating 5 impressive designs, with matching gift tags.
Available themes include: Safari, Klimt, Art Nouveau, Impressionists, Succulents, Exotic Blooms and Happy Birthday
With our price of R129, you’d be spending just R13 per wrapped gift – which is really not a lot for that degree of thoughtful personalisation.
