  3. These are absolutely gorgeous! I believe you managed to inspire everyone with this lovely post :)

    I have to upload photos from the package I've sent, but I haven't heard from my partner ever since and I didn't want to spoil the surprise in case she hasn't gotten them yet. Too bad I didn't get anything but I guess that is just my luck, right? :)

    I need to wrap Christmas presents this weekend so this post comes just on time :)

    Have a lovely day, dear! xo

  31. There is nothing more lovely than a beautifully wrapped package that you are hesitant to even want to open. Somehow it makes the gift inside seem somewhat irrelevant, because so much love and attention was paid to the outside. So beautiful.
