Wrapping presents for a man
Wrapping gifts is a fun way to prolong the anticipation of a new gift. It allows (forces?) creativeness in color and design. It's. fun way to let someone know you care... So why are so infernally few present wrapping suggestions out there masculine at all?
Flowery papers, silk ribbon, and curly colorful bows are great for some people.Unfortunately, for my hubby, they don't exactly speak his language.
So for his birthday tomorrow, I've decided to go with something a bit more masculine.
It's still possible to show some artistic flare in gift giving sans the glitter and grosgrain. Brown paper can stay as-is, or it makes a fantastic canvas for the family artist on which to add manly ventures. Coarse twine combines the fantastic combination of utilitarian functionality and all the tender smoothness of barbed wire. For bonus points, a decorative knot (the one here is a lanyard knot) takes the place of a bow.
