Adding a personal touch to presents...

I have always loved buying friends and family presents. I get this massive rush of excitement, waiting for the moment to arrive when i can hand over the present i have searched high and low for. But let's face it, anyone can go out to the shop and buy someone a present.

Over the last year i have started to add a personal touch to the presents that i buy. I really think about the presents that i will purchase and how it links to them, their style and their personality. But i am not a creative kind of girl, who can homemake presents and for them to be perfect. Don't get me wrong, i would love that. As i love being creative, just the end product never looks like the picture i have in my head!

So i have started putting little notes on the presents when they are wrapped up. Some of the are clues to what is inside the wrapping and some state why i thought the present would be perfect for the person i brought it for!

These are a few of the presents i have brought for one of my best friends, who's birthday is in a few weeks time. I had received a lot of comments and positive feedback saying that they love the personal touch it adds to gift giving. I also feel like it shows the other person that you have really took the time and thought about the present.

If you would like to have a nose as to wait is underneath the wrapping and the clues in the pictures, then my friend Laura has her own blog. So keep an eye out for a birthday haul! You can find the link to her blog, here.

Do you add a personal touch to the presents you give?
