Giving someone a present can be as much fun for the giver as it is for the receiver. If you love giving presents and you enjoy making whatever you give memorable, there are a few things you can do to ensure the recipient will love whatever you give her. Start by wrapping the present attractively and creatively. You can use gift bags or kraft bags or wrapping paper, but take your time and make sure you have done it as neatly as possible. Sloppy wrapping is never fun to deal with. Use a reasonable amount of paper and tape if you are using wrapping paper. If you have chosen another option, remember to use tissue paper to add some pizzazz. The present should look as fun before it is opened as it does after it is revealed.

Once wrapped, use a fancy tag to mark the present. This is especially handy if you are giving more than one present at a time. It keeps everyone aware of which present is for which recipient and helps make the exchange run a lot smoother. Even if you are not giving to more than one person at once, it is still a good idea to use a tag. You can create your own and make something truly personalized. Instead of the recipient's given name, consider using a nickname or something cute like "Birthday Boy" or "Graduate."

When choosing how to wrap the present, consider making the outside a clue as to what is inside. Choose paper that indicates the theme of the present or wrap it in a way that indicates what the item is. You can also use the tag to give a clue. For instance, if you are giving someone a bottle of wine as a present, your tag can say "cheers!" This is a fun way to draw out the anticipation and get the recipient really excited about what they are about to unveil.

When wrapping a present, do your best to make sure nothing is wasted. Use wrap that can be used again and again after the first time. The recipient can pass it on the next time they give someone a present and so on from there. This is a great way to get your money's worth when investing in wrapping materials. It is also better for the environment because you are not generating as much waste. Higher quality materials usually work best for reusing. Make the package attractive enough that the recipient will want to recreate the look the next time they give a present.

Once everything is wrapped and marked, add a few fancy flairs to the package. Ribbons and bows add a festive feeling to any package. You can make your present stand out from all of the others by creatively decorating it. Some people love having the loveliest present of the entire bunch and to accomplish this, you are going to need to invest some time in adorning it with fancy ribbons and bows.
