Who doesn’t love a personalised gift?
I know I do. There’s something endearing about it, knowing that someone put that little bit of extra effort in to getting something tailored to you.
One thing I’ve never considered before was personalised wrapping paper to make your gift that little bit more special.
So that brings me to introduce you to Pretty Gifted.

Their website is so easy to navigate and the straightforward instructions will have your gift wrap designed in no time at all. The most difficult thing you’ll have to do is come up with a message!
To design your paper you there’s a few steps to follow:
  • Pick your paper. Choose from Gold, Peppermint, Silver, Pearlescent, Black or Red.
  • Pick a font for from a choice of Candy, Split, Monster, Arro or Lulu.
  • Pick a foil overlay. Choose from Silver, Gold, Copper, Rainbow or Aqua

Complete the steps above and you can preview your creation at the bottom of your screen. Then all you need to do is choose how many sheets of paper you’d  like and sort out payment.

With Valentines Day right around the corner this was a great opportunity to do something a little different for Caroline. I’m not gonna lie, sometimes I can be pretty rubbish on the gifting front so this gift wrap will make my present look even better! I really hope she likes her iron... I jest!

For my design, I picked Black paper, Split font, Aqua foil overlay, font size small with a heart icon. My message says “Better Together / Love Me Like You Do”. 
Better Together is my favourite Jack Johnson song and engraved on my wedding ring. 
Love Me Like You Do is a line from Paolo Nutini’s song “No Other Way”  which was our first dance at our wedding and is engraved on Caroline’s wedding ring. Who says I can’t be romantic?!
The truth is, it took me a good wee while to come up with this!




The paper quality is great, no holes burst through through courtesy of my shoddy wrapping skills.
Also, it is recommended on the site to choose a smaller font if you have smaller gifts to wrap.
I can't tell you what I've wrapped for obvious reasons, but I'm happy with how the gifts have turned out. With every order placed, you also get a free gel pen and luxury tag to jazz it up a little bit more! What’s not to love?

To finish, if you’re looking for something a little more unique to wrap up gifts for anyone this year then I suggest you look no further than Pretty Gifted!

All I have left to do now is buy a new card seeing as the one I purchased yesterday is actually an anniversary card... That's what happens when you go shopping with Mara and she starts picking up everything you don't need, like an anniversary card!
Now, I just have to hope Caroline doesn’t try and sneak an early peek at her gifts for Valentine’s Day!
