Meet Your Instructor

I'm Shiho Masuda, but call me Shiho!

I've dedicated more than 15 years to the art of gift wrapping, performing hands-on services for individuals and businesses, as well as conducting hands-on workshops and demonstrations.

My deepest wish is to help everyone learn the skills of gift wrapping, so that together we can refine our gift giving traditions.

As a professional gift wrapping artist I believe that we, as humans, are an expression of all the experiences we go through since we are born. Every experience, every relationship (frugal or lifelong) carve our identity and perception of this world.

We all have this beautiful tradition of offering gifts to each others on various occasions, to mark special events or milestones. But without expressing the feelings that determined us to give those gifts, they are mere then objects.

It's the way we present them that makes them into a present. 

The overall experience built around the receiver and the event is what creates something more meaningful and long-lasting for all those involved.

I've witnessed first hand how the art of gift wrapping changed people's gift giving occasions to emotional moments, charged with awe and admiration for the receiver and the giver.

My previous clients and students often came back to tell me how their perception of gift giving has completely changed after learning how express their their wishes for the receiver through gift wrapping. It's so fulfilling to be able to make someone feel special by personally wrapping the present you've prepared for them!

I hope that my courses will help you learn everything you need to become confidents and be the one to proudly say:

"Here, I've got something for you!"
