A friend’s birthday was this week and I wanted to wrap his present, not just put it in a bag, but when I was at the store I couldn’t find anything that was appropriate for him. All the wrapping paper was for children or it was a little more feminine than I wanted for him. So I got some plain brown wrapping paper and wrapped his presents in that. The plan was to decorate the paper myself but when I couldn’t find the markers I wanted I just wrote “Happy Birthday” in large, pretty font on the presents. The bright side about plain paper is that you can decorate it however; you can write “Happy Birthday” multiple times on it, you can draw dinosaurs, you can personalize it with a message, you can do almost anything with it.
