A day to go before Christmas… have you wrapped your gifts yet? Believe it or not with just a day left I haven’t done ours and I’m quite panicky!
But thanks to my friend, Maricel of A Sweet Cottage who invited me to Hallmark’s Mix and Match launch last October 28, I discovered a quick, easy yet fun and super creative way of wrapping presents even if one is in a rush! A truly life saver for a mom like me who couldn’t get into wrapping gifts because of the number of things she has to do!
Hallmark launched a new line of product for gift wrapping called Mix and Match. I love this line because with this, one is able to wrap gifts meaningfully and creatively without having to DIY the materials needed. Plus, Mix and Match doesn’t just make wrapping gifts easy, it also has lots of varieties that you can use to choose from to make your presents look really special! Here are some of them take a look!
Paper twines: P18.50/6 yards. These twines can be used in two ways — you can use it as it is to tie up your presents or you may also open it up to use as ribbon or as a wide tie. Later below you will see a gift wrapped using the twine open.
Gift tags: P24.50/pack of 6. These comes in three really attractive Christmas colors — red, gold and green. Perfect to spice up your Christmas presents!
Kraft tags: P15.00/2pcs set. Using a square kraft card as gift tag attached to your presents with a small decorated clothespin, this is a sure creative way to place name tags on your gifts!
Hallmark also has paper bags that comes in different sizes, colors and designs too, if you’re not into using wrapping papers. 😛
Gift wrappers: P26.00 for plain and P46.50 for those with design. I loooovve them! The paper used is a thick special kind of paper unlike the usual wrapping papers readily available and Hallmark wrappers comes in interesting designs and colors too!
Gift accessory: Poinsettia felt flowers. This comes in three different sizes per pack and has an adhesive at the back which makes it easy for us to attach it to our gifts. Super pretty!
Gift accessory: Red flower | Star | Santa gloves at P22.50 each. Got any idea how to use this on your gifts? 😉
Gift accessory: Christmas ball | Snowflakes at P39.50 each. Now this felt accessory is a little bigger than the previous one on stick. This comes with a red ribbon which you can use to hang or tie on your gifts.
Jute bow: P56.50 each. Since I love putting ribbons on my gifts, I super enjoyed using this Mix and Match accessory for my ribbon. Such a cutie!
Gift accessory: Wooden Santa | Raindeer at P39.50 each. This is another cute item from the selection. You can either tie/hang this on your gift using the ribbon attached or pin it because it also comes with a little wooden pin at the back. 😉
Premade box: P56.50 each. This one here is quite a thick carton and can hold most items well.
Candy shaped kraft box: P39.50 each. If you love giving sweets, then this box is perfect for you!
Hallmark also have cute bags like this to hold your gifts.. You don’t have to do much to decorate this, you just have to tie it close because it is already cute on its own!
Now here are some of the different ways we wrapped our gifts during that day which you can do too using the Mix and Match items…
They’re all pretty, right? And an easy peasy thing to do too! Now gift wrapping is never a bore with the Mix and Match items at hand.
Maricel also shared with us a little bit of the history of gift wrapping and a list of helpful tips in preparing for the gift giving season which I was able to make except for the wrapping part.. Yes, I’m doing it today, haha! 😀
And here we are at work, enjoying a crafty afternoon of gift wrapping…
Thank you Hallmark Philippines for making gift wrapping not just an easy task but also a fun and creative activity too! Now giving meaningful and pretty packaged gifts is doable even for busy people like me. To Maricel, thank you very very much for allowing me to be a part of such a wonderful afternoon in the launch of Hallmark’s Mix and Match products. Such a wonderful treat!
Mix and Match is available in all National Bookstores near you!
