When mailing gifts, I’ve discovered that clear contact paper is a treasure to have around. Just wrap your gift as you generally would in a pretty paper of your choosing. I usually glue or tape a card (in the envelope) on the front of the wrapped package, addressed to the recipient for clarity, then cover the whole thing in the contact paper. The card will not come off of the package. In addition, the gift becomes water proof and it tends to slide over the other packages. With Christmas coming, your gift can be taken from the mailbox and tucked neatly under the tree right away. My only complaint when I send gifts in this fashion is that the recipient has trouble opening their gift. Just more proof it is a safe, secure and ‘pretty’ way to send your love.
