When I do gifts, I try to be creative. I don't usually use the pre-made bows, but I always like to use something. I've gotten silk flowers, cut them off the stems and used those for some beautiful gift packages. I've also been known to use ornaments, yarn, silk ribbons, etc. I like to let my imagination run wild! Of course, that's because we don't really do Christmas stuff so I never have a million gifts to wrap/decorate at once. But I do send my Aunt seasonal gift boxes. And I always try to pick a theme for those, and base my package decor on the theme.
