Lavender gift wrap

Last weekend I took a trip to Mayfield Lavender Farm in South London (heaving with swarms of bees and people), which was a fun morning despite the crowds. I bought a big bunch of lavender which I've dried out, and tried a couple of easy gift wrapping ideas with.

magazine pages

I love wrapping small parcels with pages from magazines, which I'm always cutting out and keeping. My favourite magazines for this are Plant (beautiful botanical photos and illustrations) and N. Ireland's Freckle magazine, which has lots of scenic landscape photos. If you find magazines with matte pages rather than glossy paper, it will give a really sophisticated finish to your gift.

Lavender gift wrap ideas

For the above gift, I wrapped it with a band of hessian jute (bought from a pound shop - I weaved the lavender through to keep it secure) and gold leather string.

In the second one I just used a strip of gold washi tape to tape down the lavender sprigs and one of these gold gift tags.

Your gift recipient may not thank you for bits of lavender all over the floor, but I love the natural look and the scent!
