What’s better than a present? A beautifully wrapped present!

Who doesn’t get excited at the sight of a present? Either when you give or receive one, the happiness is huge and for me the look of your loved ones when they open a gift is priceless!

But what if the beauty of a present started outside of the box?

I only discovered a couple of weeks ago and quickly fell in love with the idea. is a new website that allows you to use your personal pictures to create a beautiful personalised photo wrapping paper.

I could not wait to receive mine. I obviously used my children’s pictures I had on my Instagram account ( you can use up to 30 different ones) and the result is truly spectacular!

It’s simple to create. You can make your own in just three steps:

  • choose your photos,
  • decide how much paper you want ( a single sheet, a small roll or a large roll)
  • then check out!
You can upload photos from anywhere: Facebook, Instagram or from your phone and computer.

When I received the wrapping paper to be honest I didn’t even want it to use it as it is so beautiful that you don’t want to cut it! I was very pleased with the quality of the paper (very thick!) and the top quality of the printed images too. My husband suggested to make a frame of the single sheet we ordered, and we will probably do that in the future using more pictures from our memories.

But this time I used this gorgeous wrapping paper to wrap a gift for my mum and rather than cut it, I chose a present that fit the size of the sheet so that once she unwraps it, she can still have whole sheet intact.

I tend to put a lot of thought into making presents look special and I think this photo wrapping paper is the perfect touch to surprise my loved ones right from the moment a present reaches their hands. Fab!
