Packaging my Items

I'm always curious about how other Etsy shops package their products. I've seen a lot of cute and creative ideas. Unfortunately, I don't have tons of money to put into packaging (I would probably go all out otherwise!) but I know packaging is important to how a shop is perceived and could play a big role in customers returning.

Here's a little peek at an order to be shipped:

I've kept the packaging pretty simple. The item inside is tied with ribbon and then wrapped with white tissue paper - I got a big bundle of it at Costco. I tied the wrapped item with raffia (from Walmart) to finish it off. With my packages I include a handwritten thank you card, a printout of the receipt that gives all the details of the order (a must!), and a colorful card with extra info about my shop as well as a coupon code for next time.

Once my shop grows I'll be able to put more into the packaging. My next step is to get business cards made!

So what do you include in your packages?
