Holiday Bags, Tote-able & Gift-able: Stripe Deux Soleils and a White Accent November 30, 2011

Our bags this season feature slightly off-beat holiday colors… they’ll be your secret weapon while carting gifts this season. Gifting them is easy because not only do they pass beautifully as ‘holiday’, but after the holidays they’re equally chic. Our trick is to wrap or stuff the gift bags with acid green, pink, or metallic tissue to emphasize the ‘holiday’ aspect of the gifts. Our standby for gift-wrapping, Nashville Wraps has Bright Lime, Cerise, and Gold/Silver Tissue Papers in a variety of sizes.”
