The cherry on top of the fancy wrapping paper and the hours spent figuring out whether it was tuck then fold or fold then tuck has always been that bright bow sitting on top. From a retail standpoint, the aesthetic catch of packaged goods is critical for the appeal to the functional and artistic needs of buyers.
