Christmas is right around the corner and we can practically smell the gingerbread, warm apple cider, and honey coated ham. For many of us, Christmas is a holiday celebration that brings warm feelings, parties, religious celebrations, and family get-togethers. The one thing many of these activities have in common is the exchange of gifts to and from one another. While Christmas is not all about the gifts, it is still an excellent time of the year to express your love for those around you with a thoughtful present or two. As we all know, no present is complete without wrapping. With this article in hand, you will effectively be able to wrap Christmas presents like a professional.
Top off your gift with a mini wreath tie-on
Nothing quite encompasses Christmas like a good old-fashioned Christmas wreath. Of course, we are used to seeing them on doors and in other decorative spots, however, adding a mini version to your gift wrapping can be quite lovely. If you are looking for a fun way to add a little something to your gift presentation, why not use mini wreaths as a creative little tie-on. You can do the same with other holiday-related items such as cookie cutters. Simply tie a string to each end of your tie-on, then secure it around the present, and voila!
Use brown Kraft paper
If you are a fan of minimalism, this is the option for you. Try wrapping your presents in the Brown Kraft paper and accentuating the gift with a strip or two of colorful Christmas wrapping paper. You can also add ribbons and bows for a hint of sophistication and unique design.
Add homemade snowflakes
Depending on how crafty you are, homemade snowflakes can add a beautiful aesthetic to your wrapped gifts. With different colored and designed paper available at almost any supermarket or major store, you can really have fun with the designs you create. You might try large snowflakes to top off your gifts, or numerous smaller snowflakes to create a lovely pattern.
Employ a theme/color scheme
While Christmas is the obvious theme here, the theme I am referring to includes the colors you choose for accessories such as ribbons and bows. For instance, you might try purchasing one color of accessory in different styles and sizes. Let’s say you decide to go with red. Purchasing red ribbon in different sizes, styles, and widths will give your gifts a cohesive yet unique look.
Build a snowman gift tower
One of the more unique and creative ideas we found in regard to wrapping presents is this snowman gift tower. When we finish our shopping and begin wrapping and sorting, we ultimately end up with gifts of all different sizes. For the snowman gift tower all you need is to wrap three in white paper and stack them large to small. Next, you can add a face, a scarf, a hat and/or any other creative characteristic your holiday mind comes up with!
Wrapping with Love
Whether you are a Christmas wrapping ninja or a simple novice, it does not take rocket science to successfully wrap a beautiful gift that will stand out from the rest. While these are all useful, stylish ideas, the possibilities are truly endless. With these new and interesting ways to decorate your gifts, your friends and family will not even want to unwrap them!
