Selfmade gifts or gifts with something selfmade extra are always a great idea instead of just
buying something 'special'. Origami is great for making gifts more special and the options are
countless :) Below are some examples / ideas for making nice gifts in Origami style.

Origami Flowers

A bouquet of Origami flowers is a real nice gift to give.
This bouquet of white Calla Lilies for example, is a great as wedding gift.
Colorful flowers are great as birthday gift and Origami roses for someone....

Origami Lavender Flowers                Tissue paper flowers    Tissue paper flowers
Origami / paper flowers are also nice as decoration for a gift, these are two examples:
A piece of lavender soap with a small bunch of Origami Lavender flowers. And towels / bath towels with
a small bouquet of paper napkin flowers, real cute :) You can also use washclothes instead of paper tissues.

Perfume with Origami Flowers

(Floral) Perfume is a nice gift and you can make it something special by adding
small selfmade Origami flowers. You can add them as single flowers, make a small
floral bouquet out of them or glue the single flowers to the perfume box. Be creative!

for ages until you find a nice gift bag ;) Really.

Origami style can be real nice as a gift. Here I used large
photo frames for two posters with Origami animals.
