Is there anything more tantalizing than a gift waiting for you under the tree? Just as presentation is half the taste, fun, out-of-the-box wrapping is half the fun of giving and receiving. Check out these unique ways to wrap holiday gifts, running the gamut from humorous to elegant.
The Three-Tiered Snowman
Something you need. Something you want. Something I want you to have. The three-tiered snowman makes it easy to stay true to that timeless rule of gift-giving.
Put some holly in your jolly. You can dress up a simple brown paper bag with this classy and easy-to-make paper and ribbon wreath.
Or, skip the gift tag altogether! Black wrapping paper with silver permanent marker is a sophisticated and personalized approach to gift wrapping.
Brown paper packages tied up with string really come to life when you incorporate elements of nature. Evergreen springs work great on smaller packages, while pinecones make excellent toppers for larger gifts.
Turn gift tags into a special treat. Slip a small cookie into a cellophane envelope along with the tag for a sweet bonus.
Sew Up The Softies
No box? No problem! This cute and cost-effective method is perfect for wrapping up soft gifts like clothes, hats, gloves, and scarves. All you need is some kraft paper, needle, and thread. Place the gift on the paper, cut a shape around it, and sew it up.
Easy, yet elegant, and a great way to add a little Christmas magic to kids’ gifts.
Black & White & Red All Over
Free and eco-friendly. What more could you want? Using old newspaper with festive ribbon is an environmentally conscious way to wrap gifts for any occasion.
Easy As (Cup)cake
Traveling for the holidays this year? Don’t get stuck with a smushed bow. This DIY present topper is made from cupcake tin liners and stands up to stacking.
Don’t Forget The Dog!
We all have a hardcore dog lover in our family, and it always means a lot to include the furbaby in the festivities. Use a Milkbone treat as a present topper and pamper the pooch!
Coils Are The New Curls
Forget curling ribbons. Use coiled twine in place of a bow for a rustic chic look.
So cute you almost don’t want to open them. These adorable packages are enjoyed by kids of all ages.
A fun and mess-free craft for the kids! Get creative with the washi tape and design your own Christmas tree.
Make Some Weaves
Ribbon latticework is a low-cost way to make any giftwrap look expensive and classy.
