An Artful Exchange

Tired of giving generic gifts or trying to find something for the person who already has everything?  Why not channel that energy into a simple, thoughtful gift with an unexpected presentation?  

Unique textiles and other nontraditional wrappings can enhance one’s sense of wonder and enrich the gifting experience. Wrapping with creative intention is a fun and easy way to live a more artful life!

Think Outside the Gift Bag

Find an interesting vessel for your gift.  You can re-purpose something, or you can actually create something yourself, like one of these artful paper boxes (we happen to be having a class on this in March, click here.)
