Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! Don’t worry, though — we’re happy to bring you exclusive valentines tips from some of our lovely sponsors to get your creative juices flowing. Below, check out ideas from Suzanne Millette at Garnish.
- We asked Suzanne: “How can pretty packaging give your valentines an extra-special boost?”
Let’s face it…it’s all about the packaging! If you’re looking to make someone feel special on Valentine’s Day, focus on the presentation and you’ll be sure to achieve success. When presented with a lovely looking gift, they’ll be smiling before they even see what’s inside. Much like how we taste with our eyes first. And remember, the packaging doesn’t have to be extravagant. There is sheer beauty in simplicity – whether the gift or the styling. It doesn’t take much, just a little Garnish!
- We asked Suzanne: “How do you pick the perfect valentine for family members or friends?”
Growing up my mother always had a special little treat waiting for us on Valentine’s Day at our place at the dinner table. I like to do the same for my family. It may be something as simple as candy conversation hearts. But instead of the store packaging, I’ll make them my own by placing them in a candy tube adorned with a sweet message. Perhaps chocolates in a little gable box. One year we all had a Valentine’s Day dinner on the family room floor. I made everyone their own “happy meals” in a personalized box. The reality is, it’s not about the gift itself. Special days are about special moments – and that’s what Garnish is all about.
