Christmas is the season of giving. I love watching people’s faces as they open their gifts and you’ve given them something that they truly wanted and wished for. And when a gift is beautifully wrapped, it just makes it even better. It shows that the person truly took the time to make them feel special. Below I’m sharing 4 easy gift wrapping ideas. Scroll down for some inspiration and I’ve linked everything too so you can recreate it!

4 Easy Gift Wrapping Ideas

I like to use kraft paper. I think it’s so simple, neutral and there are so many different ways you can style and decorate it.

1.) Use dried orange slices and natural elements.

I make dried orange slices every year! They’re great for gift toppers, ornaments and garlands. Here I used some twine and strung a citrus slice and bell and tied it around the package. Then I stuck in a sprig of rosemary. Fresh greens from tree clippings works too and most places will give you the clippings for free.

2.) Top with puffy loop yarn and a candy cane.

This puffy loop yarn gives it a little more of a whimsical flair. You can use this to string around your tree like garland too!

And then I added a little candy cane.

3.) Make a reindeer

I love this idea from my friend Lynn @snapsbylynn. She drew some eyes and antlers and added a little pom pom for the nose.

4.) Draw a gingerbread house.

My friend Lana at The Whitewood Cottage used a white marker to draw some cute gingerbread houses on her package. It came out super cute!
