This is my favorite DIY gift topper idea of all time! I have done it for the birthdays of all of my best friends. You simply print out photos of you and the giftee together, cherished memories or ones with sentimental value, and you glue them on top of the gift. You can easily just attach a single photo to the gift, but more is always better! A super cute suggestion would be to print out a lot of small photos and cut them out in different shapes like heart, stars, etc. Then glue them to the wrapping paper, and you have yourself a very heartwarming gift topper for Christmas 2023!
