Lucky Plant Gift: Wish someone an auspicious new year with a jade plant, Crassula ovata. This easy-care succulent is said to bring prosperity. To wrap the pot, place it on a square sheet of decorative paper. Bring up two opposite corners, and secure to the pot with double-sided tape. Fold the other two flaps as shown; tape. Tie gold cord around the pot, and add a tag with a message.
If you ever receive a gift from my sister Kathleen *, it would look like this at a very minimum. She makes all her packages pieces of art -- the gift can almost be secondary at times. Seasonal finds, like this, or original art on paper, or unique things to tie together (chop sticks, birds' nets, old coins). She's a Wrap Artist.
