Jewellery Boxes

If you buy second hand jewellery, it doesn’t always come in a box. You can rectify that buy purchasing jewellery boxes from Amazon. I always buy the 5 pack you can check out via the link. They are good quality and amazing value. SODIAL(R) 5PCS Paper Package Bowknot Jewelry Necklace Bracelet Earring Ring Gift Box Case, Style-4 Rectangle(8.5X5cm).

Organza Bags

Organza bags add a touch of prettiness to a gift, whether it be jewellery, trinkets, or even small toys. You can buy them in all sizes for great prices. Amazon offer a pack of 50 white organza bags that I buy regularly for gifting drop earrings. Sannysis Organza Bags, White, 13 x 16 cm.

Paper Bags and Stickers

Paper bags and stickers are a great way to spruce up a second hand gift. They come in all colours and sizes, and you can get stickers in many designs, even personalised if you wish. I have gifted candles from the charity shop in this way. I just popped the candle into the bag and sealed closed with a sticker. Here are the bags and stickers I used:

Bags: The Paper Bag Company Candy Stripe Paper Bags, 5 x 7 Inches – Pink, Pack of 100.

Stickers: Flybuild® 100pcs Round Thank You Kraft Paper Stickers Wedding Favours Letter Gift Self Adhesive Labels (Silver).

Hessian Style Bags

I think hessian style bags work best when gifting toiletries. Do you have any unopened body lotions or soaps you would like to gift? Pop them in a linen jute bag from Amazon. Snner Gift Bags, C-10pcs Linen Jute 1014cm.


I love using cellophane when re-gifting toys and trinkets etc. The following link is for one 20m roll that is amazing value and it will last you a good while. I secure mine with ribbon for added prettiness. 20m x 80cm Clear Cellophane Florist Wrap.
