Are you ready for tons of gift wrapping inspiration? I’m teaming up with some of my favorite blogger friends to share 13 gift wrapping ideas for the holidays.
Now I am by no means a gift wrapping pro. I love me a giant gift bag as much as the next person, especially when I’m running late to a birthday party. And in our house, Santa usually wraps the boy’s gifts in some kind of dinosaur or character wrapping paper so we can distinguish who’s is who. But when it comes to giving gifts to family members or friends at Christmas time, it’s more special when you give a gift that shows you took the time to wrap.
Here are some tips and ideas to make your gifts look more creative and festive this holiday season!
I love to use kraft paper, there’s so many options and ways you can decorate it, from stamping, or painting, or adding various toppers. I love how neutral it is.
I think my favorite way is to add some twine, dried citrus slices, and a sprig of greens to tie it all together. It makes it look a little more elevated.
Or if you love a more whimsical flair, you can draw a gingerbread or make a reindeer.
Scented salt dough ornaments also are another cute DIY topper idea. Click here to see how to make them!
