In this digital age, anything tangible somehow feels more significant or appreciated, and nowhere is that more evident than in the world of paper and giftwrapping. Wherever you look, blogs or magazines offer ideas for enhancing a humble gift by embellishing it with vintage or reused materials.

Giftwrapped builds on this trend, but takes it to a new and much more luxurious level while still keeping it real. â??Gift Wrap Guruâ?? Jane Means, who wraps for the stars, royalty and high-end companies, offers her signature style and personal take on wrapping any present so that it is transformed into a gloriously gorgeous gift.

Whether itâ??s a simple box, a tube or an awkwardly shaped tin, Giftwrapped describes how to achieve wrapping perfection with simple step-by-step instructions and Janeâ??s myriad tips, so that you can learn what really works for impact and elegance.

The personal touch is Janeâ??s forte along with an innate thriftiness. Sheâ??ll show you her â??tricksâ?? on how to upcycle vintage treasures and reuse unusual wrapping papers, such as sheet music and old maps, to the best effect, as well as how to choose the perfect style for the giftâ??s recipient.

Lots of photos for inspiration and step-by-step tutorials for all shapes and sizes of presents. Good for the crafty person who believes the wrapping is important too.
