When you buy your loved one a luxury silk scarf, you don’t want the magic of opening your carefully chosen present to be dampened by shoddy wrapping. You definitely don’t want to wrap their silk scarf in a way which means they open it creased and misshapen. To help you avoid a nightmare before Christmas, we’ve made this guide to wrapping a silk scarf.
What You'll Need
Before you begin, gather the following materials:
- A Shaku silk scarf
- Tissue paper
- Ribbon or twine
- A gift box
Find A Box
First impressions matter so pick out a beautiful box in a festive colour or pattern to place your silk scarf in. If you’re buying your silk scarf from Shaku, we’ll place it in our luxury classic coral box which looks perfect under the Christmas tree.
Avoid wrapping your silk scarf in wrapping paper as the scarf will move around and won’t be neatly folded by the time your loved one opens it.
Use tissue paper
We always use tissue paper when wrapping our silk scarves because it’s a fabulous touch to a luxury gift. Plus, it gives your silk scarf that extra protection the delicate material needs. You can also protect your scarf by placing it in a cotton bag but, personally, we think that tissue paper is prettier. Place the scarf at one end of your paper and fold into the middle so that tissue paper is completely covering your scarf.
Ribbons, ribbons, ribbons!
Is there anything more exciting than someone handing you a ribboned box? Look for a ribbon that matches your chosen box and tissue paper for a more luxurious look. You can find ribbon in most card shops. If you’re a beginner ribbon-tier, here’s a handy guide we found to help you.
At Shaku, we love giving gift in ribbon. That’s why our scarf boxes are tied with our signature blue ribbon.
Put it under the Christmas tree
Ta-da! Now your gift box looks just a gorgeous as the luxury silk scarf inside. Still haven’t chosen your silk scarf? Look at our collection where we have luxury scarves to suit any loved one. Plus, you won’t have to worry about wrapping.
