Jody Allen Founder/Chief Content Editor
Jody is the founder and essence of Stay at Home Mum. An insatiable appetite for reading from a very young age had Jody harbouring dreams of being a published author since primary school. That deep seeded need to write found its way to the public eye in 2011 with the launch of SAHM. Fast forward 4 years and a few thousand articles Jody has fulfilled her dream of being published in print. With the 2014 launch of Once a Month Cooking and 2015’s Live Well on Less, thanks to Penguin Random House, Jody shows no signs of slowing down. The master of true native content, Jody lives and experiences first hand every word of advertorial she pens.
Mum to two magnificent boys and wife to her beloved Brendan; Jody’s voice is a sure fire winner when you need to talk to Mums.
I don’t know about you but I’m tired of wrapping my gifts the old and boring way!
For some, the gift wrapper is just that piece of paper that covers the present. However, I have come to realise that, hey, gift wrappers are the initial impressions. They are the presentation — the same way a 5-star restaurant presents its dishes. And, wait, could they be actually part of the gift?
You certainly can blame Pinterest for these crazy cute epiphanies, but I’m sure once you see these gorgeous gift wrapping ideas for Christmas, I know you’ll be on board with me, too!
1. This kind of gift wrapping is perfect for children of all ages!
2. How rustic and charming are these doilies?
3. These handmade tags give a new meaning to “cute as a button.”
4. Let’s go back to doilies. Doilies + floral = la la la love!
5. What about a scion that your lucky recipient can plant?
