Gift Wrapping Ideas

🎄Day 9 of 12 days of RebeccaRose🎄

I love wrapping up presents especially when it involves watching Elf. I like to have specific themes for presents, this year I’ve gone for brown paper jazzed up with a load of decorations. Each year, I have a scroll through Pinterest for some ideas. I have tried to recreate a few of these and hopefully give you some inspiration. My favourite places to buy wrapping paper are Paperchase and M&S but so many shops have good wrapping paper! I normally leave my wrapping till last-minute(a.k.a. an hour before the person arrives). However, this year I was determined to wrap in advance and take my time wrapping. I like to put on a bit of vlogmas or a Christmas film and grab a festive snack.

Fun Wrapping Paper and Twine:

This look is very simple but effective. I like to wrap all the stocking fillers in this because it’s so quick and easy to do. All I did was take some festive wrapping paper and wrap the present with it. I then added some red and white twine to it and stuck on a gift tag. I like to play around with the colours of twine and sometimes add a bow.

Spruce Foliage:

I love adding bits of foliage to my presents as it gives a really chic rustic look. Although you can use real foliage, I decided to stick with fake because I wanted it to last. I actually ordered a kit from Amazon called the ‘rustic wrap kit’. It contained the gift tags, foliage and ribbon! I copied the picture on the website and I was so happy with how they looked. I will definitely be doing this again. I bought my kraft paper from a post office and I would definitely recommend doing that because it’s a lot cheaper. You also get loads of it so you won’t run out!

This one’s nice because you can give your wrapping a bit of a personal touch. I found a few photos of me and the person whose gift I was wrapping and stuck them on some Kraft paper. You can use stencils but I decided to freestyle! I doodled round the outside of the pictures and it surprisingly didn’t look to bad.

Christmas Cracker:

I always wrap my presents up like this if it’s an awkward shape and I don’t really know how to wrap it up! I roll the present up in my wrapping paper of choice and twist either end so it looks like a cracker. I then sellotape and tie twine round either end. You can finish it with a bow or gift tag.

Fun Wrapping Paper – Poundland

Hopefully this give you some inspiration for wrapping your presents! It’s nice to make a bit of an effort wrapping especially if it’s going under your tree. I found a sack from Poundland that I’ve put all my wrapped presents and I love the finished look. I can’t wait to start handing them out to people!
