Gift wrap­ping

How beautiful to pack a gift for a man?

Do you also think that bows and oth­er rustling tin­sel on a gift are more suit­able for a girl? We has­ten to please lovers and lovers of cre­ative pre­sen­ta­tion design: men love an atten­tive and thought­ful choice of pack­ag­ing for gifts no less than the fair sex. An inter­est­ing design can cre­ate an unex­pect­ed, fun­ny or mag­nif­i­cent entourage around even the most ser­i­al sou­venir.

There­fore, bold­ly go ahead — to study the sci­ence of beau­ti­ful gift wrap­ping for strong men.

Packaging Basics

A gift is good, and a beau­ti­ful­ly wrapped gift is even bet­ter, because there is a mys­tery, intrigue, a desire to find out what is inside. If a woman will be delight­ed with a bow or just a pret­ty col­or of wrap­ping paper, then with men it is a lit­tle more dif­fi­cult.

To beau­ti­ful­ly pack a present for a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the strong half of human­i­ty, you need to fol­low sim­ple rules.

  1. Col­or. Gray is bor­ing. Wom­en’s col­or­ing is too glam­orous for a real “main”. Brown, blue, red, green are male col­ors. Two pri­ma­ry col­ors and one accent col­or are suit­able for a for­mal gift. The base can be cher­ry, moth­er-of-pearl, cham­pagne, beige or ter­ra­cot­ta. For the boss, choose green and blue. White and black shades are used only togeth­er. A friend or beloved hus­band will be pleased with the juicy tones and inter­est­ing pat­tern of wrap­ping paper. Stick to the rule: bright pack­ag­ing — plain decor, calm col­ors — a bright dec­o­ra­tion.
  2. Gift wrap­ping should be neat and clear. Min­i­mal­ism is what you need.
  3. Avoid too many rib­bons and bows.
  4. pay atten­tion to hob­by, pro­fes­sion, age, social sta­tus of the gift­ed.
  5. Pack­ing mate­r­i­al.
    • Wrap­ping or craft paper is a safe, bud­get-friend­ly, eco-friend­ly mate­r­i­al with which many ideas can be real­ized. Twine, satin rib­bons, fig­ures made of wood or met­al will serve as an excel­lent decor. You can use news­pa­per, sup­ple­ment­ed with a col­ored rib­bon.
    • Tex­tile. Wrap the gift itself or the gift box in silk, bro­cade or satin — and the orig­i­nal pack­ag­ing is ready.
    • Wrin­kled paper. Due to the absence of ugly folds, any­thing non-rec­tan­gu­lar will look great in such a pack­age.
  6. Gift form.
    • a box is bet­ter than a bun­dle;
    • tall, not flat box;
    • deli­cious gifts are giv­en in bas­kets;
    • pack­ing vol­ume.
  7. Appro­pri­ate decor.
    • Flors. You can use arti­fi­cial, live or dry. Berries, cones and leaves are also suit­able.
    • Can­dies. It is bet­ter to use oval or round (easy to mount).
    • Small fig­urines. ?You can buy in a store or do it your­self from poly­mer clay.
    • Satin rib­bons (nar­row or medi­um width). You can also tie a gift with a tie, sus­penders or a bow tie.
    • Bows. The main thing is not white, not very volu­mi­nous.
    • Tags, but­tons, coins, labels, pom­poms, clothes­pins, stick­ers, brush­es.

By age of birthday

Age is an impor­tant char­ac­ter­is­tic when choos­ing a pack­age. Soft col­ors and high-qual­i­ty pack­ag­ing mate­r­i­al will suit a seri­ous man, and a young guy — an orig­i­nal design, com­ple­ment­ed by fun­ny draw­ings and con­grat­u­la­tions.

Wrap a birth­day present for a child in bright paper with a fun­ny print and dec­o­rate with your favorite char­ac­ters, bal­loons, cars. Inter­est and enthu­si­asm are guar­an­teed.

Thematic design

Does the man have a hob­by? Dec­o­rate the gift themed.

  • For music lovers, choose paper that has sheet music on it.

  • Craft paper and a small toy car attached to a rib­bon rep­re­sent­ing the road will delight the car enthu­si­ast.

  • A real trav­el­er will appre­ci­ate pack­ag­ing made from paper print­ed with sights or coun­tries or from a world map (or you can use unnec­es­sary atlases for chil­dren). As a dec­o­ra­tion, you can add a fig­urine of an air­plane.

  • The sports­man will be pleased with the pack­ag­ing in the form of a sports bag and paper with a print in the form of medals or cups, and the busi­ness­man will be pleased with the pack­age-suit­case.

  • A his­to­ry lover will be inter­est­ed in a craft pack­age tied with twine and dec­o­rat­ed with a red wax seal.

  • An intel­li­gent man will like a box-book. It can be wood­en or card­board.

How to present a small surprise for a man?

In order to inter­est­ing­ly pack a small gift, you can use:

  • fab­ric bag;
  • a box (of any shape) — this is the most pop­u­lar type of pack­ag­ing;

  • match­box in the form of a suit­case.

Original ideas for presenting a big gift

Big gift — big pack­age. In this case, a giant box is need­ed as a dec­o­ra­tion. To dec­o­rate such a pre­sen­ta­tion, use a huge card­board box. Cov­er it with wrap­ping paper or oth­er mate­r­i­al, tie it with rib­bon and dec­o­rate with a large bow. Instead of paper, you can sim­ply stick appli­ca­tions or pho­tographs on the box.

Hov­er, these are not all pos­si­ble options — there are sev­er­al more inter­est­ing ways to present a large gift in an orig­i­nal way.

  • Con­tain­ers and buck­ets. You cer­tain­ly did not think about such a pack­age.
  • Wood­en box­es. Styl­ish things for real men.
  • Bas­kets. First, they con­tain a gift, and then you can use it in the house­hold — the so-called dou­ble present.

  • Car, motor­cy­cle or bicy­cle can be hid­den, throw­ing fab­ric, poly­silk film or dec­o­ra­tive paper on top.

We create with our own hands

  • The eas­i­est option is to glue a hat, glass­es and a mus­tache or a tie and a bow tie onto a gift bag or the gift itself.
  • With dec­o­ra­tive paper, glue, and tape, you can make a pack­age that looks like a shirt with real but­tons, a T‑shirt, or even a vest and shirt.
  • A gift packed in a men’s shirt or sater looks unusu­al. Put the shirt on the square box con­tain­ing the gift, fas­ten the but­tons, tuck the sleeves down and secure with pins.
  • Pack a bot­tle of good alco­hol in a sleeve from a sater or shirt, tie it with a beau­ti­ful rope.

  • A gift in a bun­dle looks cre­ative. This is the Japan­ese tech­nique of furoshi­ki. A present is wrapped in a square cut of bright and strong fab­ric, and tied on top.
  • Warm knit­ted pack­age. Lat­er, you can make a cute pil­low on the sofa out of it. You can knit or use an old sater.

  • Cov­er the box with can­vas with large holes and embroi­der what the birth­day per­son likes, or even wish­es in the form of small draw­ings.

  • Wrap the gift in a cus­tom print fab­ric. This can be done with a sten­cil.
  • You can embroi­der a con­grat­u­la­tion or decor ele­ment on wrap­ping paper. It’s a good idea to use a sewing machine and sew up a gift in craft paper (the pack­ag­ing can be in the shape of a star, a Christ­mas boot, a car, etc.).
  • If you are good at draw­ing, you can col­or the pack­age. Water­col­or or gouache, con­crete draw­ing or abstrac­tion — it all depends on your cre­ativ­i­ty. Unique­ness guar­an­teed. Do not know how to draw, but the soul asks for cre­ativ­i­ty? Use sten­cils, stamps and seals.

  • You can spice up a gift by dec­o­rat­ing it with tags made from salt dough (yes, the dough that have been able to make since school days), or leaves, branch­es, cones (espe­cial­ly gold) paint­ed with spray paint.

  • Glue, loose glit­ter and dou­ble-sided tape — and you can cre­ate any design.

  • The Celtic knot (with the roman­tic name “Heart”), made of woolen threads, will styl­ish­ly com­ple­ment the gift. The main thing is that it is made by the hands of a beloved girl.

  • Sack­cloth. It seems strange, but with the right decor, it will make the right impres­sion. In such pack­ag­ing it is good to give a pet.

  • A present packed in egg car­riages or cre­ative­ly designed glass jars looks super unusu­al.

Feel free to be nice and con­sid­er­ate. Indi­vid­u­al­ism in every­thing and a spe­cial atti­tude has always been val­ued. And now it is espe­cial­ly fash­ion­able even among young peo­ple.

Give a close man or boyfriend not just a worth­while present, but your assess­ment of the unique­ness of a person’s per­son­al­i­ty and a sense of cel­e­bra­tion.
