For my present 

I created a custom candle using some adorable tree images designed by Moon Cookie Gallery which can be found over in the Whimsy Stamp store, This is the front of my candle 

Back of candle using another Moon Cookie Gallery image 
Added a bit of sparkle with Stickles on both trees, add a velum border and red silk ribbon and bow 

I then wrapped it up in a plastic gift bag and added a matching tag 

I then created a it's own box using a template " What's Your Angle" from My Time Made Easy
Sentiment from Raindrop Echo and Stickles to add some bling 

Side view of the box - all ready to put in a shipping box to send out to a sweet someone!
