Green Wrapping

We're off to London tomorrow to celebrate a friend's birthday, and I thought I'd take the opportunity to use a tip I read: Using a tea towel to wrap a present rather than paper. The paper doesn't get wasted and the recipient gets something useful.

Here it is:

I'm really pleased as it looks lovely, and also should provide a bit of extra cushioning from the inevitable knocks it will get while we're on the train. Looks like everyone I know will be getting a tea towel with every present from now on!


  1. Oh lovely packaging. That would be my ideal gift in itself. Lucky friend.

  2. Thanks Becks! She really liked the present, and I think she liked the wrapping as much as what was in it. I'm not sure it would work as well with something more awkwardly shaped though!
