A So-Simple Yet So-Sophisticated Way to Personalize a Gift


White Letters on White Wrap The next time you're in a rush to wrap something, or you can't be bothered to get all fancy (hey, even us wrapping obsessed get tired sometimes), go with this quick yet designer-look solution: create a monogram using stick-on letters.

Stock up on adhesive alphabets from the office supply store or the scrapbooking section of a crafts store, and you'll always have everyone's initials on hand. Wrap the present in paper, then attach the letters to the front. Use contrasting letters or try tone-on-tone like you see here, where a matte C and S stand out against glossy paper. Play with placement before sticking the letters in their final positions.
