  1. Honestly.. This post cracked me up! The packaging is so amazing ! It’s a shame how these companies can fool us with a little gift wrapping !

    • If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, you definitely have to check out Peddy Mergui’s exhibition at the San Francisco Museum of Craft & Design in-person. It’s a funny way to look at product design and packaging.
