The halls are decked and the tree is trimmed, but what about the gifts under the tree? I’m the type that buys wrapping paper the day after Christmas, and, if I’m feeling extra festive, I’ll maybe throw a bow or ribbon on a couple boxes. I’ve put together a few ideas for easy and unique gift wrapping ideas that’ll look like you’ve gone the extra mile. Not only will the gifts look great under your tree, the recipients will feel like they’re getting something extra special.
First, let’s look at some ideas using kraft paper. For some reason, boxes wrapped in this simple brown paper look effortlessly chic and elegant. You could tie a simple ribbon around the package and leave it at that, or add some custom stamping. If you have kids, paint the bottom of their feet with brown paint and have them walk on a strip of the paper. Then, turn their footprints into cute reindeer. This would be a great option for gifts going to grandparents. Or, stamp the recipients’ names as a beautiful gift label.
Do you have a collection of maps that don’t have much use now because of smart phones? They would make striking and unique gift wrap! Just tie with a red string or ribbon to complete the look.
Another one of my favorites is using “upcycled” newspaper. I love this one using the crossword puzzles and adorned with an elegant looking gold ribbon.
Are there any unique ways you wrap your Christmas gifts?
