Bowtie Giftwrap

At Nod, we believe your home should be a celebration of family. We'll be featuring our Managing Director, Michelle, at home celebrating her own family with recipes, crafts and décor created by our friend Sweet Paul

I’m a big fan of making giftwrap be part of the present.  A perfect idea for a dapper-Dad on Father’s Day is to buy a special bowtie and use it in place of a ribbon on a gift.  In fact, a fun gift would be a small box with a note inside that says “I love you, Dad!” and then simply use the bowtie to wrap the box.  An instant inside-out present! 



Keep an eye out at the thrift store or flea market for old clothing with vintage buckles.
