The lights are low, and everyone has sung "Happy Birthday," and the candles on the cake are spluttering. Suddenly you reveal your gift, the perfect present in the perfect box, with the perfect ribbon to finish it off. Going to the extra effort to wrap a gift beautifully is a lovely way to show how much you care, and it gives you a chance to show off your creativity too. The perfect choice for wrapping presents is grosgrain ribbon, a strong fabric with a distinctive ribbed finish that is available in many colors and styles. The same material is also perfect for scrapbooking, making greeting cards, or crafting with the kids. For something a bit more glamorous, you could choose satin ribbon instead, which has a gorgeous glossy finish that adds shimmer and luxury to any Christmas present or craft project. There is no need to tie yourself up in knots trying to find the best place to get the ribbon you need. The reliable sellers on eBay have a huge range of individual reels and bulk lots suitable for projects of any scale.
