I’m Corinna vanGerwen, a gift stylist whose expertly wrapped presents have appeared in film, online and in magazines such as Canadian Living and Food & Drink. I have demonstrated wrapping techniques in videos for GEICO, Indigo and Style at Home, among others, and have taught private and corporate classes in the art of gift styling. I’ve wrapped gifts for celebrities and CEOs, and have been featured as a gift-wrapping expert in top media outlets, including in Wired, House & Home, the Canadian Press and Ming Pao Daily News.
After graduating from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design with a bachelor of fine arts, I worked in magazine publishing as a writer and editor, and have held senior on-staff positions at Style at Home and Cottage Life. I spent a year handling operations for a boutique PR agency, then launched my gift styling business in 2010. I continue to write and style for leading magazines and websites.
