One thing we recognise here at Fig & Bloom is just how important beautiful presentation is. Whether it is the stunning floral arrangements we put together or the premium gifts we offer, we make sure that every element of the design is considered carefully so that the recipient is wowed from the moment they receive the product! One part of this is the striking, quality stickers that we use. If you’ve ever wondered where we get them from, read on to discover everything you need to know.

Presentation is everything when it comes to gift-giving

We truly believe that presentation is everything when it comes to gift-giving! You’re giving a gift to someone you care about to show you love them, it has to be perfect right? Seeing something that is packaged beautifully, with excellent attention to detail, makes a massive difference. It increases the excitement that you feel when opening the present, building the anticipation for what is beneath the packaging. That is why we consider everything carefully, from the custom stickers we use to the stunning packaging materials. It all adds to the overall feel. When you spend your money on something, you want the supplier to go the extra mile, and that is what we always do at Fig & Bloom.

Where did gift wrapping come from?

No doubt, you have wrapped gifts for as long as you can remember, right? We know we have! But, have you ever wondered where this gift wrapping tradition comes from? Well, this is something that dates back to the Three Kingdoms Period. Those who practised conventional Korean folk religions during this time believed that wrapped gifts symbolised good luck and protection. Therefore, wrapping presents was a way of bestowing fortune and protection on the recipient. Interestingly, though, a fabric was used to wrap presents then. Furoshiki, which is the Japanese art of wrapping gifts in cloth fabric, was another early present wrapping tradition that has been around since the 1600s during the Tokugawa period. 

It was not until the 1800s that people started to wrap their gifts in the wrapping paper that we have become accustomed to today. However, paper gift wrap in the true sense, with beautiful designs, is something that Hallmark can take credit for. The Hall brothers had a stationery store in Kansas City. They printed tissue paper and cards in their store. When they ran out of tissue paper, they decided to start printing big rolls of patterned wrapping paper.
