Pretty Packaging

I am a giant sucker for packaging. Pretty packaging can sway me to buy just about anything! Just last week, I bought a hand soap that smelled awful but the packaging was sooo pretty. It's now in our bathroom to Clint's dismay :) 

Despite my love for packaging, I am a horrible present wrapper. Seriously- I'm just awful at it. I always run out of paper half way through or can't figure out how to properly wrap an odd shaped gift... my family cracks up at my skills every year at Christmas. So now it's kind of my trademark thing: "Holly- The Epic Gift Wrapper." 

So I am determined to perfect my skills and that's where Knot & Bow comes in. Knot & Bow is an adorable Etsy Store that I stumbled across this weekend and I think I almost bought out the entire shop. I mean, how could I resist! 

Gold Heart Stickers? Check! 
Adorable Pencils? Got 'Em! 
Fab Confetti! Yep! 

Here are a few of my favorite items from the shop.


  1. These are amazing! I am in love with cute packaging too. Our fist X-Mas together, my husband wrapped all of my favorite colors to wrap my gifts, even down to the tissue paper...apparently he's a sucker for great wrapping too!

  6. This stuff is adorable! I am in the middle of deciding what colors I will use this Christmas/holiday season. Maybe I'll find motivation at Knot & Bow. Thanks for sharing!

  7. All of this stuff is so pretty! I love gorgeous packaging too and actually LOVE gift wrapping, to the point where anyone who gives me a gift wraps it SO horribly just to annoy me lol


  8. Their branding is fantastic! Really loving those pencils. I have faith in you! If all else fails, buy pretty boxes, tie 'em up with a string and call it a day!


  9. I'm with you. Pretty packaging gets me every time. Definitely going to have to check out this store!

  10. So fun! I'm such a sucker for packaging too!

  13. Great stuff. Love the personalized pencils!!!!!!


  14. I love Knot & Bow! They make the prettiest things, and I also am a huge fan of their packaging :) I might have to get some of that pretty confetti soon! xx

  15. I'm a total sucker for packaging and I literally judge books by their covers (if it's pretty, it's in my cart). I'll have to check out Knot & Bow.

  16. I am totally the same way! Especially during Christmas season, when all the packaging is so cute for gifts!! I am a total sucker and I end up hoarding some of it just because it's cute!

    I adore those pencils! & I don't even like pencils!

  19. Ahhh I've got a few of their hearts in my favorite lists myself! I've been restraining myself until I can find a valid reason to buy them LOL. And "But they're so pretty" is not one! I also can't wrap for my life. I used to be fabulous at it but after working at Swarovski over Christmas a few years ago I lost my mojo and now I totally suck :o(

    Which is crap because I LOVE wrapping gifts.

  20. I adore knot and bow! Their office is by my house!

  21. I love cute stuff like that. I feel that it hides my bad wrapping skills too. :D
