Gift Wrapping Ideas

I don’t know about you, but I love wrapping Christmas presents (even though I’m not the queen of DIY). I’m no expert gift wrapper, but I love doing it and I find my taste changes just a bit every year. Using simple ideas, you can have a pile of prettily wrapped packages in no time. These are just some of the ideas I found on Pinterest.

Here are some things to help you out with the process:

Choose a nice, maybe a bit different wrapping paper. Give inexpensive Kraft or butcher paper an artistic update with a woodblock stamp and white ink.
Don’t forget about some fancy ribbon, rope or twine.
Pick up some sentimental and gift specific ornaments.
Pick some fresh flowers and greenery.
Following a gift wrapping theme can make things a lot easier. Layer gift wrap and toppers in various patterns featuring the same color family, mix and match ribbons/strings, ornaments and greenery to create the perfect look for each gift.
A handmade tag makes a beautifully wrapped gift even more special.

Simple trick: Wrap the entire package in strands of ribbon or twine. It’s easy, simple and it immediately dresses up the box.
