When it comes to presents, we all know it’s what’s inside that counts. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have fun with what’s on the outside! I find my taste changes a bit every year but there’s just something so stylish about keeping it simple. Sometimes the lack of ostentation can say so much more than things that shine brighter or try harder. Using simple ideas, you can have a pile of prettily wrapped packages in no time. Let’s show the people we love how much we care before they even open the gift!
Here are some suggestions to help you out with the process:
Choose a nice, maybe a bit different wrapping paper. Give inexpensive Kraft or butcher paper an artistic update with a woodblock stamp and white ink.
Pick up some sentimental and gift specific ornaments.
Pick some fresh flowers and greenery.
Wrap the entire package in strands of ribbon or twine. It’s easy, simple and it immediately dresses up the box.
Following a gift wrapping theme can make things a lot easier. Layer gift wrap and toppers in various patterns featuring the same color family, mix and match ribbons/strings, ornaments and greenery to create the perfect look for each gift.
A handmade tag makes a beautifully wrapped gift even more special.
