I used to put more thought into giftwrapping – using various embellishments and textures. That seemed to have shifted a bit ever since I’ve been gifting more handmade items. They are usually irregularly shaped so I use tissue paper to wrap them, then put in a gift bag. Recent gifts have been less exciting than they used to be in regards to the presentation. However, I’m happy that I get to give more DIY gifts.
I have been pondering: crafting makes me happy, but why? I like making things, but I am more excited with the final outcome – the gifting part. So does it make the satisfaction and fulfilment predominantly intrinsic or extrinsic?
