Christmas All Wrapped Up

Christmas is slowly edging closer; the Christmas lights have been switched on in Oxford Street, the window displays of Fortnum and Mason are seducing the passers-by and my shelves and drawers are filling up with gifts for family and friends. There is so much joy in receiving a well thought out gift and one that is wrapped thoughtfully too is even better.  I love wrapping gifts. Having chosen the most beautiful, this just had to be yours, i know you've wanted this, i knew you'd love it gift; wrapping it to make it tantalisingly oh my goodness what's inside?.... almost too pretty to open, knowing it makes that someone special feel all the more special for the effort put in.  Here's some of my favourite unique gift wrapping ideas that will add a little magic to all your gifts this year. Because the joy of giving is even better when it's all dressed up!
