I know how tough it is to simply get around to purchasing the gift for an upcoming birthday party, much less finding the time to wrap it. But if you can muster the energy, you can add a lot of fun to your gift with only a few minutes of effort.
Most craft stores have a section filled with wooden die cuts and often they sell ones that are already painted, like my little dinosaur here. For less than a dollar you can really add interest to your gift.
And this is not exclusive to boxes. Even if you’re sending your child out the door with a gift bag, a fun accessory gives it a personal touch.
