During the holidays, choosing gifts becomes one of the most difficult tasks. I would like to please everyone without exception (even the most distant acquaintances), but fit into the budget. That is why you have to come up with interesting, but inexpensive gifts. An excellent option for such a presentation can be a mug. In addition, the gift is often not as important as its packaging.
If you think about the proper design of a gift, then even the most ordinary cup will turn into a surprise. We will talk about how to properly arrange and pack a mug as a gift in today’s article.
In the box
If you decide to buy a thermo mug or a cup with a saucer, then, most likely, such items are sold in branded factory packaging. You just have to wrap the box in beautiful gift paper. To do this, you, first of all, need to choose the same wrapping paper.
You can choose options that will be associated with the holiday, on the occasion of which you give a present (for example, snowflakes for the New Year or hearts on Valentine’s Day), or more versatile varieties (flors, stripes, abstract patterns).
In addition to paper, you will need glue (or tape), a ruler, and scissors. Using a ruler, measure the dimensions of the box, and then cut off the required amount of paper (just in case, this should be done with a margin). Cover the box with cut paper and let it dry. The box can be glued both inside and outside, or only from the outside. Optionally, you can add additional decorative elements: ribbons, beads, bows, and so on.
Important! If you re not given a box when buying, then in any gift shop you can buy a ready-made box.
It will be colored or printed, plain or combine several shades. You just have to put the gift in the box and you can go to the holiday.
In this case, you again have several options — buy a ready-made gift bag or create it yourself. The latter option is more preferable, as it individualizes and personalizes your gift according to the recipient’s preferences.
So, to create an original gift bag with your own hands, you will need foil or any other wrapping paper (this is used in flor shops for wrapping flors). You can choose from transparent paper or colored paper (plain or patterned). In the second case, it will be possible to keep the intrigue to the last.
The following algorithm of actions should be follod:
- cut out a square from gift paper, depending on the size of the mug;
- put a circle on top of it in the center;
- collect all the ends over the mug;
- tie your present with a decorative ribbon or rope;
- attach a small greeting card to it.
A mug on the occasion of the holiday can be given without any external packaging. Hover, in this case, you need to take care of its internal content. It should be selected based on the personal preferences of the person to whom your present is intended. For example, a set tooth will like sets and chocolates; on New Year’s Eve it is appropriate to fill a cup with tea and coffee bags.
If you give such a gift on March 8, then you can put cosmetics and care products inside the mug: lip gloss, mascara, mask and so on. For those who are ready to make a more expensive gift, a gift with small jelry or gadget accessories, such as headphones, may be suitable. In this case, you are limited only by your imagination and financial capabilities.
If you have creative abilities, and also know how to knit or sew, then you can independently create a special cover for a mug as a gift. Obviously, there are no restrictions in this case.
Based on the size of the mug, sew a small pouch by joining a few pieces of fabric together and then embroider a pattern on it (this could be a holiday themed design or the name of the person you’re giving the gift to).
And you can also knit a cover for a mug using knitting needles or a hook. Use plain or multi-colored threads as you wish. Choose your favorite color shades of the donee.
Important! Several packaging options can be combined upon request. For example, knit a cover for a mug, inside which you can put sets and tea bags. Show your imagination and don’t be afraid to experiment.
