My Brothers Birthday – Presents from me to him

Generally my brother is very hard to buy for but this year he seemed pretty chuffed with a few of the bits I got him. He seemed most pleased with the humour book about chickens, as he has pet chickens in the back garden. Also he thought the lynx bullet sprays were a nice idea, great for on the go and you can pop them in your bag. do playing cards with different characters on them, my brother likes the Simpsons so thought Simpsons playing cards would go down well. Other bits I bought include toiletries and chocolate.

I tried to make the personalised wrapping paper more masculine, using more male colours and materials. At the moment I’ve been enjoying using grid paper to decorate items and I’ve been collecting different patterns. I believe decorating with this and including brown string makes a great present design for males.

The general colour scheme for the wrapping was monochrome but I added a few more colours bits. I had a recycled yellow paper bag; I used this to make a mini hamper from the chocolate bars I bought. I decorated the outside with red ribbon and an image of a cupcake.
