Unique Christmas Wrapping How-To's and Tips!
Everybody knows the tried and true methods of gift wrapping. You can go to the store and get your standard gift wrap, through the gift in a box and wrap it up easy-peasy! Or you can get a festive gift bag, some nice tissue paper and wrap the gift up in there. But why not use the holiday season as an excuse to get your creative juices flowing? Check out some fun and unique Christmas wrapping how-tos!
Sweet and Simple
One of the worst parts about wrapping presents is underestimating how much wrapping paper you are going to need. You get halfway through the pile of presents and suddenly the wrapping paper roll is empty. Luckily, if you’re anything like my mother, you have some paper grocery bags stashed somewhere in the kitchen. If you do, you just found the solution to your problem. All you need now is some twine and a sprig of pine!
Fun and Games
When wrapping gifts for kids we usually tend to pick the more fun and exciting wrapping papers. The ones with cute critters in Santa hats, the wrapping paper with their favorite characters, or the ones with their favorite toys. But why settle for wrapping paper that looks fun? Why not give your kiddos gifts with wrapping paper that is fun? Creating interactive wrapping paper is easier than you think!
Empty and Reuse
Do you think gift bags are overused and overrated? Or are you addicted to coffee and feel like your drowning in empty coffee canisters? Why not create your own gift basket using an old coffee canister? It’s super easy, super fun, and 100% customizable! Not only is it a creative way to make a gift, but it’s also a creative way to re-use your old cans!
Unwrap and Wear
Have you ever heard of the saying, killing two birds with one stone? A fun way to wrap a gift for your loved one is in another gift! Using re-usable fabric wrap is an eco-friendly and fun alternative to traditional wrapping paper. However, if you don’t have time to order a bunch of re-usable wraps, you can easily make your own!
Letters and Laughs
Another alternative to traditional wrapping paper is any other kind of paper! The best part? You can make it as unique and personal as the other fun options! Use the comics from an old newspaper and watch your loved one’s face light up as they reminisce spending Sunday mornings reading them. Or use pages from an old book that they love and see their joy at re-reading the words again!
Wrapping presents is crazy and chaotic, but it doesn’t have to be boring! Whenever you get tired of using the same wrapping paper over and over again, or if you run out of wrapping paper you can always mix it up! Give your loved ones a small extra gift by using fun and personalized wrapping paper! Remember, the most important part is to relax, have fun, and let your creativity take control. The holidays are about enjoying time with loved ones and sharing stories of times past, and with these simple and fun gift wrapping ideas that the happy holidays are just around the corner!
