Why not add a gift tag with a message? If you are giving mittens or gloves, for example, it is an opportunity to give credit to the Creator for the work of his hands. Here are some verses that say just that:
The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:5
In the beginning [God] laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of [his] hands. Psalm 102:25
The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy. Psalm 111:7
Don't forget to add some bling to the tags. This is a celebration!
