The Gifted Blog

Inspired By: Kayte Terry

This Inspired By post is part of a mini-series on the things and people that inspire my gift wrapping. Inspiration can strike at any time!

I saw these charmingly wrapped jam jars on This is Love Forever and knew I had to share. Crafter, stylist and blogger Kayte Terry made jam with her husband as gifts, and this is the result!

It's all in the details for this gift wrapping project. Specifically, I love the stitched and typed labels, pinking-sheared edges of the brown paper toppers, and the ceramic spoons. The mushrooms are adorable, but I really love the idea of a gift decoration that is perfectly functional (and so well-suited to the gift!).

If you are familiar with Kayte's work (in her books or for Anthropologie), technically this should come as no surprise. I was still a little awed to come across gifts so thoughtfully done up!

See her full post here for more beautiful photos. Kayte, thank you for sharing!
