Gifts are usually wrapped in gift wrap or cellophane paper, decorated with bows or even lovingly decorated with flowers. Is that too unspectacular for you? You don’t want to just give someone a gift, but rather inspire them? How about a gift – wrapped in a balloon yourself? Follow the big trend and give your surprise packed in a balloon. This will put a smile on everyone’s face!
Why wrap a gift in a balloon yourself?

What gifts fit in a balloon?
For large and elaborate gifts, there are of course special stores that have all the means to fit your gift into a balloon. However, we are all about creating something big and beautiful out of small and simple things!
Of course, you have limited space to put a gift through the neck of the balloon and into the balloon. That’s why we’ve made a list of small surprises that work:
make-up (e.g. mascara)
small pieces of jewelry (e.g. earrings or small necklaces)
Vouchers (of course best written or made by yourself)
Sweets (e.g. the favorite sweets of the person who is to receive the gift)
What you should definitely add to any gift is confetti or glitter! This just looks incredibly beautiful in a transparent balloon and also highlights any content again.
How can I wrap a gift in a balloon?
To wrap a gift in a balloon yourself, you can basically take any balloon. However, we always recommend transparent balloons, because there the content can be staged more beautifully and also confetti and Co achieve a greater effect.
And the bigger the balloon, the more space your gift has! To give you a small overview of the things you should consider for the gift in the balloon, we have a small step-by-step guide for you:
Get ready what you need: Balloon, gift, confetti. Depending on what your balloon is for, you can have helium or an air pump ready.
We recommend that you inflate the balloon first so that it stretches. This can be done with your mouth or an air pump. The air is then let out again.
Now fill your balloon with confetti or glitter.
Next, maneuver your gift into the balloon. Money & coupons should be rolled up and can be held together with nice ribbon.
Finally, you can fill the balloon with air or helium (if you want the balloon to fly). After that, it is closed with a knot. If you want the balloon to float, please keep in mind that the gifts in the balloon are not too heavy or the balloon is big enough, otherwise it will sink to the ground.
The engagement ring in a balloon
Our absolute pro tip! Planning to ask your sweetheart if you want to spend the rest of your lives together? Such an engagement does not always have to be planned fastidiously. A question that comes from the heart should convey just that. How about an engagement ring in a transparent balloon? Plus, of course, some gold confetti to give the proposal a certain glamour factor!
If you want to give the whole event an extra personal touch, you can of course also use our number balloons and, for example, visualize the date on which you got together with the help of the balloons.
You can then write “Will you marry me?” on the balloons with a glittery gold permanent marker. This will warm any heart, whether it’s a man or a woman. No matter the place or time of day. Ask the one question!
