Think outside the box! Get your boots on and go foraging about for what will become stylish gift decorations. Consider items like twine, Christmas tree branches, pine cones and so on. You want to pick up elements that won’t deteriorate too easily, so no leaves or flowers (unless they’re artificial).
Next, stock up on rolls of wrapping paper, tags and ribbon!
Have a look online to get an idea for what you like, sites like Cox & Cox have a variety of stunning options to choose from, or you can do it the old-fashioned way and drop by the closest stationery shop.
Get crazy, the more the merrier and you will always be able to use what’s left next year.
Now that you’re all set, let’s start!
The Gorgeous Gift Wrapping Ideas:
If you’ve got kids to gift, make it fun and transform the package into an animal. Create a reindeer, by using brown wrap paper, cutting a red nose to stick in the middle, dark brown horns for the head and a couple of fake eyes will do the trick. You’ll get a big smile before the presents’ opening!
2. Remember To Create A Gift Tag!
Very important, for you as well as the receivers, personalize each gift with a tag! Whether it be a kind word or just a name, it gives it that little extra touch. It also means that you won’t stress about forgetting who the gifts are for (crucial if you’ve got a big family).
