Gift wrapping has always been a passion of mine.

“I wonder if I can be on work attachment as a gift-wrapping specialist in Japan?” I remember musing to Angie, my once-neighbour in the staff room, while getting our feet reflexologised.

A beautifully wrapped present shows the receiver you care and makes it look like a million bucks! That’s a leaf taken from the Japanese book of perfectly coiffed gifts. No item is deemed too small or too cheap for it to be packaged with care and meticulous attention to detail.

While I have not the resources to make the work attachment a reality, I strive to live the Japanese way when it comes to the presents I give. šŸ™‚

To enhance the lovingly homemade vibe, the labels are all hand-written.
