My Christmas Gift Wrapping Inspiration

Now hopefully by this time, you’ve got the majority of your Christmas shopping done and it’s sitting in a pile waiting to be wrapped. As much as I enjoy buying the presents, I think my favourite bit is actually wrapping everything up and making it look pretty. I just find it so satisfying!

So I thought I would give you some wrapping inspiration if you’re like me and you enjoy gift wrapping.

Calligraphy

This is from Carrie at Wish Wish Wish. I envy her calligraphy skills! I totally want to try this out next year. I did something similar with stamps last year but it took forever! I think because I just stamped whole sheets of paper rather than cutting paper to fit the gift and then decorating it. These look simple to make and beautiful.

Downloadable

You can download and print this wrapping paper yourself! Great for the smaller gifts. Unless you happen to have a printer that prints in A3 I guess. Though I imagine if you made or bought a stamp then you could achieve the same look.

Christmas tag

This is a great idea if you donโ€™t have any Christmas paper lying around but you do have some generic paper like this. Just make some Christmas tags and youโ€™re ready to go.

Christmas string

Only have brown paper? I love this string and it looks pretty easy to make. I reckon that a larger version would look awesome as Christmas bunting too.

Tinsel Ribbon

I love this idea of using tinsel for string. It looks so festive even though the wrapping paper isnโ€™t traditionally Christmassy.

I’ll totally admit that I was completely boring this year and as I’m quite low on craft materials at the moment, I just bought gift wrap to save money. Next year though, I’m going all out! How about you? How are you wrapping your presents this year?
