8. Splatter Wrapping
A typographic gift topper is a great way to personalise your gift for your design savvy friend – create and decorate cardboard letters with glitter and colour. Spell out their name or a cute Christmas message or just use one letter (right). It’s so impressive that the present won’t even matter!
