The Perfect Father’s Day Gift and DIY Leather Gift Tags

Father's Day Gift Idea and DIY Leather Gift Tag

Father’s Day is this Sunday and in case you’re still looking for that special gift,  I wanted to share a bit more about one of the products featured in my Father’s Day Gift Guide. And I’ve got some gift wrap inspiration to share with you today too!

Shopping for dad (and men in general) can be tough. Unique men’s gifts are hard to come by.  I was recently introduced to Harry’s, an online shop for men’s shaving and grooming products. The fine folks at Harry’s sent a few products for my husband to try and after using them he gave the products two-thumbs up.

Since my hubby is a member of the FMWH Club (aka–fine men without hair) and uses a razor to shave his head and his face, I decide to do a little Q & A with him to share why he love the Harry’s products.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products--Father's Day Gift Idea

 

Me:  How does the Harry’s razor compare to the drugstore razors you typically buy?

Him:  The first thing I noticed about the razor was the multiple blades on the razor head.  Multiple razors mean you’ll get a close, smooth shave.  I also liked the cushioned handle which felt good in my hand.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products--Father's Day Gift Idea

Me:  What did you think about the products included in the Winston Set?

Him:  I liked the combination of items in the set and that the packaging and graphics were simple and not fussy.

fyi–the Winston Set comes with a 4 oz. Foaming Shave Gel, Razor, 3 Blade Cartridges and a Blade Cover, all for $25.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products--Father's Day Gift Idea

Me:  I know you like a shave cream that lathers good, how did Harry’s Foaming Shave Gel and Shave Cream compare to other products you’ve use?

Him:  It only took a dime size amount of Harry’s shave gel to get a good lather.  The consistency of the gel was great for shaving my head and helped to prevent nicks from the blade.  I used the  Shave Cream on my face and liked how easy it was to move the blade around my face and neck.

note:  Harry’s blades were specifically designed for face shaving but they can be used on the head, especially for seasoned shavers like those in the FMWH Club.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Me:  You like to put aftershave on your face and head once you’ve shaved so what did you think of Harry’s Post Shave Balm?

Him:  Typically post shave products make my head sting when I put them.  There was a little sting with Harry’s shave balm but it had a cooling effect on my skin.  And it didn’t leave my head or face dried out and tight like other products.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Me:  The last product you tired was the Face Lotion?  What did you think of it?

Him:  I don’t like heavy products on my face so Harry’s was good because it wasn’t heavy or oily.

Harry's--Men's Shaving Products

Now that you know what my hubby thought of the Harry’s products, let me tell you something I loved about it. I loved the way the products smelled.  All of the items have a fresh, clean scent which lasted throughout the day.

Harry’s products are sold exclusively through their e-commerce site and their New York barber shop, Harry’s Corner Shop.  Selling online allows them to offer high-quality shaving products at prices well below their competition.  And Harry’s has a great subscription plan which will deliver blades and products directly to your door based on how often someone shaves.  This is a great service since most men don’t like shopping.

Now that we’ve got your Father’s Day gift covered, here’s how to make you own DIY Leather Gift Tag to use with your gift wrap.

DIY Leather Gift Tag by ConfettiStyle

I love paper gift tags but lately I’ve been making my own  fabric tags.

DIY Leather Gift Tag by ConfettiStyle--Father's Day Gift Wrap

Fabric gift tags are super easy to make and all you need to make your own is a few inexpensive supplies.

Supplies:

DIY Leather Gift Tag by ConfettiStyle

How to make fabric gift tags:

  1. Place fabric face side down and trace the outline of the paper tag on to the back of the fabric.
  2. Punch a hole in the fabric using the hole it the paper tag as a guide.
  3. Cut out the fabric tag.
  4. Cover the shipping tag with adhesive glue and attach the fabric to the tag.
  5. Attach the grommet in the tag hole.
  6. Write a message on the back of the tag and you’re ready to wrap your gift.

tip: You can leave the front of your tags plain or add an embellishment like an adhesive monogram that you can pick up at the craft store.

Gift Wrap Inspiration: Pleated Paper Valentines Wrap

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Whew!  We made it to Friday.  I have had a jammed packed week and I’m glad the weekend is upon us.  Even though I have some work to catch up on this weekend, I also plan to enjoy some down time and watch all the festivities surrounding the Super Bowl.  And yes I’ll be rooting on the Falcons!

I’ve got a fun and easy gift wrap inspiration post for your today, just in time for all your Valentine’s Day gift giving.

Because I wrap a lot of gifts during the year, I am always experimenting with different ways to manipulate the paper to give my gifts some flair.  For my Valentines wrap this year I decided to do a little pleat treatment with my paper.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

It’s really easy to pleat gift wrap.  To start, determine the amount of paper you’ll need to wrap your box and add about 8″.  The extra paper will allow you to create multiple pleats in your paper and still be able to wrap your box.  You’ll be creating your pleats horizontally across the width of the paper.

The first pleat I made was pretty deep (about 3 1/2″) and I’ll explain why in a minute.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Once you’ve made your first pleat, continue pleating your paper with small folds.  You want to create enough pleats so they stand out on your gift.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

Once all your pleats are made, turn your paper over and tape the pleats down on each edge of the paper.  This will hold the pleats in place.

And now all you have to do is wrap your gift.

Pleated Paper Valentine's Gift Wrap by ConfettiStyle

The reason I made the first pleat extra deep was to create a pocket that could hold a Valentine’s Day card.  Pretty clever, right?!

The pocket can also hold money, a photo or a sweet treat like a chocolate heart.

You can find the free printableValentine’s Day cards I designed here.

I added bows and ribbon to complete my Valentines wrap and just love the way the packages look.
