They say the best gifts come from the heart, but we say it's the best gift wrap that comes from the heart. And what's more beautiful and personal than your face plastered all over your presents? This holiday season, Gift Wrap My Face is allowing you to give your giftees the best give ever: the gift of you.
Miami locals Aryel Rivero and Vanessa Clavijo launched this innovative idea of a custom "selfie" wrapping paper last year after practicing it as a hobby for their family and friends. Now, it's available for all selfie lovers (and name tag haters). Plus, if you're a bigger fan of your baby or even your pet, you can customize the wrap with your tiny and furry friends.
To get your custom selfie wrapping paper, head to GiftWrapMyFace.com and follow three easy steps. First, select your design. Second, upload your awesome selfie. Finally, trace and snip out your head(s) onto your selected pattern. Half rolls sell for $7.99 and a full role is $14.99. As of now, they're only operating online (although here's a guide to brick-and-mortar stores to settle your holiday paper needs) but hope to expand to stores and pop-up shops in the future. 'Tis the season to gift yo' self.
