It is a season of celebrations and gifting at Blingsparkle. Eid is coming, fathers day is tomorrow and some family weddings on cards. I love planning and buying gifts. My mom and even my sisters always come to me for advice on appropriate, in budget gift ideas.

 I was packing a gift other day and I chose the cutest gift wrapper ever only to find out at the event venue that more cuter and more gorgeous wrapping papers are out there and my gift packing was in no way unique! So, i Came up with this super idea of wrapping gifts in a news paper to make them stand out in a gift crowd.

Gift wrapping in a newspaper? How tacky and cheap , you say ? We not really. If done nicely by putting in a little effort newspaper gift wrapping can be the talk of the party you attend. Trust me on that and read on to know more.

  • You are doing mother earth a favour. Using waste newspaper is eco friendly.
  • Your gift is going to stand out at the venue. No one sees whats inside at the venue itself , so it is important for your gift to make a fabulous first impression. Newspaper wrapping means everyone is going to give your gift a second glance.
