Over the past 34 years of my life I learnt one important thing: it's not the grandness of the gift that counts, it's actually the gesture and the attention to detail that makes a gift special. Personally, I find some of the simplest gifts the most memorable. A note written on a hand-picked stationary that I mentioned to like, a slice of apple pie picked up from my favourite cake shop, a lip balm because I recently said how dry my lips were, or a bunch of seasonal blooms wrapped in a way it says: 'I care'.
So, since little special gestures are a thing of mine, when I stumbled upon Victoria's idea of wrapping a flower bouquet with a simple scarf, it totally tickled my fancy. I guarantee, if you show up with a gem like that to your friend's house for dinner, the hostess will be totally chuffed that you made the effort of choosing her favourite flowers and wrapping them in such a unique way.
I can't wait to try it. You?
