The brief for this project was to create a suite of coordinating gifts for a man and a woman — they had to look good together, but the man's gifts should be different from the woman's.
For both I used a linen-textured cloud-grey paper, and changed the ribbons and toppers depending on whether the gift was for the man or the woman. The woman's gifts have a softer look, with layered satin and organza ribbons in lilac, and faux flowers for toppers. The man's gifts feature black grosgrain ribbon tied in a triple bow, with dried greenery as an embellishment.
