Holiday Wrap Ideas
After spending endless hours shopping for the perfect gift for the special people on your list, don't overlook the way you wrap the gift. You can make a great impression by giving a beautifully wrapped gift for Christmas. From simple wrappings in traditional Christmas colors to elaborate gift wrap adorned with bows and embellishments, there are many ways to wrap a gift and have it look fabulous.
Simple Yet Festive
Gift bags make wrapping a gift a breeze. There are a wide variety of bags on the market to fit any size gift. You can find gift bags in festive colors, such as red or green, as well as in a number of seasonal patterns. To complete your gift wrap, use matching tissue paper as a filler and a metallic ribbon.
You can keep your gift wrap simple and be kind to the environment in the process. Find eco-friendly gift wrap in a natural color that coordinates perfectly with twine. This is an ideal option for giving gifts to people on your list who try to stay green, even during the holidays.
Fun for Kids
Kids will love waking up to gifts on Christmas morning that are wrapped in a fun wrapping paper. Instead of the traditional red and green paper, opt for a bold, bright color adorned with fun prints such as snowmen, candy canes, or your child's favorite character.
A bow is the traditional accent for Christmas packages, but there is plenty of room for creativity in this area. Pinecones, candy canes, jingle bells, and small Christmas tree ornaments are just a few of the items you can use for unique gift accents. Many accents can be made by hand out of materials such as felt, construction paper, or even old Christmas cards. You can also find a variety at any discount store during the Christmas season.
Many gifts can be placed in a beautiful box that can be reused for another purpose. You can often find hat boxes, stacking boxes, and specialty boxes in a range of sizes and in fun and festive patterns. Boxes come in holiday shapes as well, like stars or trees, that are sure to make an impression on the person receiving the gift.
Turn an ordinary gift bag into a luxurious gift by choosing one adorned with fur and sparkle. This type of wrapping is stunning and will be appreciated just as much as what is inside.
Elegant gift wrap makes a statement all its own. Give a package wrapped in beautiful paper and adorned with an elegant bow. Wrapping like this is beautiful to look at and will make the recipient feel special.
Stacks of Presents
Surprise that someone special with a stack of wrapped gifts. Presents can be placed in multiple boxes and tied together with a ribbon and Christmas accents such as ornaments. Use coordinating or matching paper to create a unified look for all the gifts.
With the variety of packaging options on the market, you can find something to use for any gift you purchase. When you have an unusually shaped gift, it's important to find wrap that covers the item. Large gift sacks, burlap bags, and fabric can cover these gifts without the fuss of dealing with stiff paper. Dress up your choice with a bright bow and creative tag to complete the look.
Make Your Own
You can make your own one-of-a-kind gift wrap. All you need is a brown paper bag or a large sheet of craft paper. Hand stamp your favorite design and allow to dry. Kids of all ages will enjoy getting involved in this project as well. Wrap the gift in the paper and use a matching ribbon to complete your wrapping. It couldn't be easier!
Keep With Tradition
A gift wrapped in a traditional paper of green or red can look classic. Keep with tradition and place a large bow, as well as card, to whatever Christmas present you are giving.
