If you’re unsure of what to get your girlfriend or wife for your next special occasion, a gorgeous necklace, bracelet, or pair of earrings is probably a good bet. In fact, 58% of women prefer to get jewelry as a gift over alternative presents.
However, you’re also going to want to show the woman in your life how much she means to you by wrapping your gift in a unique and individualistic way. Here, we’re going to give you some jewelry packaging ideas to ensure that the presentation of your gift is almost as good as the piece itself!
Customize a Box
When you think about giving someone jewelry, the first thing that comes to mind is just wrapping it up in a box and handing it to her. We would generally say that this isn’t the best idea, but it can be made pretty awesome if you create a custom box.
Instead of handing your gift to her in the box that it came in, which is the real no-no, you’ll want to go to the craft store and purchase a wooden box. Make sure that it’s big enough to hold your gift and keep it safe. Then, head over to the craft section and grab some paints, permanent markers, and beads in her favorite colors and styles.
You have a lot of options when deciding how to decorate your custom box. Create a pattern that you know your girl will love or write her name in an elegant script. Inside jokes are always a fun thing to incorporate into the design, and you’ll get to see her lovely laugh when she sees these jokes come to life.
Entwine It in Flowers
Whether or not you choose to place them in a custom box, engulfing your jewelry gift in flowers is a fun and romantic way to present the piece to your loved one.
Place the piece of jewelry in a box and arrange the flowers around it. It could also be fun to have her dig around and find the jewelry, assuming that your flowers aren’t thorny!
One of the best flowers to hide your jewelry in are marigolds, a beautiful flower that symbolizes creativity and passion. You also may want to consider wrapping the gift in bleeding hearts, which are tiny flowers that bloom naturally to look like tiny pink hearts on long green vines.
If you want to forego the box altogether and are giving her a bracelet or a necklace (rather than earrings), you can also wrap your gift around the stem of a bouquet. Because handmade is heartfelt, consider a hand-tied bouquet of wildflowers from your garden or a nature sanctuary.
Wrap It in Origami
Don’t have access to real flowers? No problem!
Origami flowers are pretty easy to make, and you can create a ton of them and bury the jewelry you’ve bought in it. This is also a great idea if you think that the woman you love will want to keep the flowers as mantlepieces, decorations, or even bookmarks.
But flowers aren’t the only thing that you can engulf your jewelry items in. You can also create gorgeous origami butterflies, cute animals, or passionate hearts. Think of something that the receiver likes and make it from her favorite colored paper. Get creative!
Bury It in Riches
If you’re willing to spend a bit more cash and make the woman in your life feel like a queen, you can bury her gorgeous piece of handmade jewelry in coins. These coins, which look like something that a sailor would keep in a treasure chest can be seen here:
What’s even better is that this page’s online shop carries gorgeous pieces of handmade jewelry. Some styles even incorporate coins like these! You can select a beautifully handmade, one-of-a-kind piece and have it shipped in the same order as the coins that you’re going to bury it in!
This is an awesome way to make your loved one feel as though she’s swimming in wealth.
You can also have a lot of fun with this presentation by making it a sort of treasure hunt for her to play. Place personalized clues around your home (or another favorite location) and have her follow them to the endpoint. There, you can have your jewelry-laden treasure box waiting to be found!
Enmesh It in Chocolate
If your loved one is a chocoholic, then there’s no better way to give her some jewelry than by encircling it in chocolatey goodness.
You can go to pretty much any fine chocolate store like Fanny May or Godiva to purchase a box of her favorite chocolates. Take them out of their box and place them around the jewelry piece in a shape that you think she’ll like. A heart or her first initial are ideas that you can’t go wrong with.
Another option is to bake a cake (or come cupcakes) and use your jewelry as a cake topper. This is a great way to make anyone smile. Just make sure that you put a thin layer of parchment paper between the jewelry and the frosting- you don’t want it to stain!
