I always try to make sure that the gifts I pick for my family & friends are something they would like- ideally the kind of thing that they didn't even know they wanted or would never have bought for themselves! I am a big believer in the importance of making the outside of a gift look as special and unique as the gift inside... you want the first impression of your gift to hint at the fabulous-ness inside!
I came across this idea for Mistletoe Package Toppers in the December issue of Martha Stewart Living & thought it was adorable. The only thing that I didn't like is, who knows what Mistletoe looks like? I personally would never recognize a Mistletoe leaf or berry on it's own... unless it was hanging from the ceiling!
So I decided to take the idea & tweak it a bit... using Holly instead of Mistletoe. All it took was some green felt & red jingle bells.
