They say that you should not judge a gift by its wrapping but don’t you think that a beautiful box makes a gift extra special? For example, for my last birthday, my boyfriend gave me a pair of pearl earrings (I love pearls!) in clear plastic that destroyed any element of surprise. My sister, on the other hand, gave me a fancy hair clip in an elegant red and gold box and I had a great time unwrapping it. To this day, the box is still in my drawer holding that hairclip and more.
This story is partly the reason why I keep a handful of these Black and Ivory Flourish Favor Boxes at home. It helps to keep things in perspective when buying gifts because I only buy small gifts that can fit in these elegant boxes. They never fail to make the recipient feel excited about opening her gift! And they’re great for spiffing up the place settings at a bridal shower or your wedding reception.
