With her brilliant sense of style, designer and bestselling author Carolyne Roehm makes the case in Presentations that there’s just as much pleasure in wrapping gifts as in receiving them—and that beautiful packages guarantee memorable celebrations.
For everyone who loved At Home with Carolyne Roehm, one of America’s premier style-setters now offers her ideas for creating breathtaking gift wrappings using readily available paper, tags, rubber stamps, ribbons, artificial flowers, and other inexpensive materials. Arranged seasonally, and taking inspiration from Roehm’s love of nature, travel and collecting, and fine art, the book focuses on holidays as well as on ways to make children’s gifts look unique and adorable. As Roehm shows, with creativity and care any present can be made an exquisite offering.
More than two hundred dazzling photographs provide inspiration, and a clear and detailed how-to section gives readers the step-by-step tools they need to create beautiful gifts. And for those who would like to create stunning packages but have little time, the book also offers wonderfully distinctive—yet simple—gift-bagging ideas. To coordinate with these eye-popping wrappings, there are the author’s original theme-party ideas and distinctive table settings.
With Carolyne Roehm’s advice, anyone can elevate a special occasion to the realm of the unforgettable.

When does a crafts book become a coffee-table one? In the hands of designer Roehm, author of At Home with Carolyne Roehm (2001) and A Passion for Flowers (1997), among others, that's when. She combines luscious in-your-face color photographs, minimal text, and a back-of-the-book section featuring supply basics and step-by-step photographic instructions on how to wrap the perfect gift, all of which provides all the right information. Ideas are divided into seasons: spring devoted to sorbets; summer, color and geometry; autumn, rich reds, oranges, and browns; and winter, with its panoply of brocades and paeans to Valentine's Day. An instant classic that emphasizes the author's definition of gift-wrapping as a wondrous form of self-expression. Barbara Jacobs
