Fashionable Gifts for the Holidays...

I LOVE pretty packages... I wish I was good at wrapping packages... unfortunately I am NOT... so I really appreciate these...

hubby's favorite type of gift wrap... Fifi's favorite type of gift wrap...

and I LOVE this site "A Gift Wrapped Life" with INCREDIBLE wrapping...
oooh and here are some for Beverly... be sure to visit her and other PINK participants on Saturday via How Sweet the Sound... anddddddd... Be sure to visit The Inspired Room throughout this holiday season!!!

Sooooo... How are you at gift wrap design? Do you make a FAB bow? Do you attach treasures like ornaments or pine cones? Or are you a gift bag person?

I can provide the gifts... such as CUSTOM or ORIGINAL paintings... but le sigh... I leave the wrapping to professionals! I wish I had a personal gift wrapper!!!

Speaking of Fifi Flowers' ART WORK... ALL of my ART WORK is 15% starting TODAY until November 29... visit My Etsy Shop or contact moi if you don't see what you are looking for... it is probably AVAILABLE!!! JUST ASK!!!

Oooooops... I almost forgot... GIVEAWAY... I am giving away 3 sets of HOLIDAY CARDS... YOUR HOLIDAY... 3 LUCKY WINNERS will send me a photo they would like to see painted for a set of THEIR CUSTOM HOLIDAY CARDS!!! Deadline to enter MONDAY, November 30th@ noon EST... GOOD LUCK!!! NOW... leave a comment... I will contact winners on Monday evening... do not send photos now.

ENJOY your week-end mon amies!!!

OOOO I Love you FIFI!!

I just bought your coco book! Cant wait to get it!
I am a garden designer, and would have to pick from some of the most beautiful ones I have photographed!
( From 30,000 photos! ) I know its obsessive, but I feel like i am painting with flowers when I am installing a Jardin! Have a great Holiday weekend!

Hello Fifi, I love all of your gift wrapping photos. I love to gift wrap and usually make a pretty package. I sometimes attach an ornament. If I shop early I do a better job of wrapping. Otherwise I end up using gift bags.

I love your photo idea. I have just the one for painting I think. I will send it on Monday. I would love to be in your drawing.

I hope your Thanksgiving day was wonderful. Happy Pink Sat.

Hugs, Jeanne

jeanne said...

Fifi, I just re-read your instructions and I realize the winners are to send their photo. I won's send a photo unless I am lucky. BIG smile!
Hugs again, Jeanne

I wish I could wrap pretty packages like these... I always cut the paper either way too big or half an inch too small -- ARGH!!

I need a personal gift wrapper too. And a personal shopper would be nice :-)


Robin said...

Beautiful gifts. I'm not a talented or creative gift wrapper either. Luckily for me though here in Israel stores always wrap for you if you ask, no charge, as part of the service. I rarely have to wrap my own gifts these days.

Hi Fifi,

Unfortunately I am not a good gift wrapper - try as hard as I do. I'm better than I was but your pictures are haunting me. I must buy the dud wrapping paper because the sales assistant using exactly the same paper as mine wrapped my purchases and created fancy bows right in front of me. How does that happen I asked her & she told that they're sent to gift-wrapping school for a week before serving in the department.
Let her wrap I say - we'll do martinis!

Madelief said...

Hi Fifi,

Have a happy weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Barbara said...

Terri said...

Like you, I am simply hopeless at wrapping gifts. I resort to gift bags a lot! Maybe I need that gift wrapping school one of the other comments mentioned!

Thank you for hosting such a nice giveaway!

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Such gorgeous packages. I really can't say any of mine look anything like that. Hugs, Marty

rochambeau said...

Great post!
Especially like your favorite wrapping too! And your husbands idea is funny. But ALL lovely!

Methinks you would really be a good and creative wrapper. This year you should give it a try. Make some tags with your art, and use complimentary paper and ribbons. It's just a thought!
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Actually Fifi, I don't mean to brag, but, I'm quite good at wrapping presents. I love doing it and making them look pretty. This year I have bought some wonderful gift tags from Magdalena from Color Sepia. She's from Sweden so you can imagine what they are like. I think that my presents should look really good this year.

I love the pinks you found to share with us today. Some of those packages are so beautiful it would be a shame to open them. Have a great Pink Saturday.

KayEllen said...

Happy Pink Saturday!!

Beautiful gift wrapping~~~
Have a wonderful rest of your weekend
sweet Fifi!!


Susie Jefferson said...

Wow! I am in awe of that packaging - I don't think we have professional wrappers&packers in the UK... It's all stunning.

PLEASE enter me in your draw - I would adore to win something!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Claudia said...

I am a terrible wrapper - I get impatient with the whole process! I wish I was better at it than I am!
Happy Pink Saturday, Fifi!

Kelli said...

I love shopping for gifts as well as receiving them but alas I am with you on the wrapping. I have great ideas but they just never quite turn out.
Beautiful examples!

Draffin Bears said...

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and lovely weekend ahead.

Char said...

Oh Fifi, beautiful packages for sure, I also love a package wrapped in plain brown paper and string....not hard to please at all, Happy Pink Saturday, but I must also add this: a package in the special blue paper and white you're talking!!! Char

Oh FiFi...
Beautiful packaging. I love wrapping presents, and I like the natural look, because you can add so many colors to the brown paper. It just looks so warm and happy under the tree.

Thanks for sharing. I love it when you do. I can't wait for you to share your Christmas tree with us. I want to see what fab ornaments you have and the colors for sure.
Please share soon.

You know me I love the photo idea. I have a wonderful picture in mind.

Thanks for sharing as always. I love it when you do.

I am getting my photo matted and framed. I love it. It is the most beautiful painting I have ever seen. It is going on the mantel.

Have a beautiful day FiFi.
Country hugs and much love...Sherry
