I think a book is a really great gift. That being said - I bought two of my friends books for birthday gifts.
I bought them both the Martha Stewart's Holiday Craft Book. They are both crafty! Also a book is a really easy gift to wrap!
I wrapped the books in black paper and used black and red ribbon. Then I tied a lipstick ornament onto the package.
This is the time of the year when you can put little ornaments on your packages. I think the lipstick ornament really makes my package look fun!
I am going to be posting a lot of gift wrap ideas so keep checking back! Also I would love it if you left a comment!
