How to Make Christmas Gift Wrap Beautiful and Easy
Gift giving is all in the details, but it doesn’t have to be hard! Read below for some easy AND pretty inspiration for Christmas gift wrap this year! I’ve rounded up several fun ideas for you along with an amazing group of bloggers!
Gift wrapping was a serious ordeal when I was growing up. This will date me, but I lived my childhood without internet orders and Amazon. I also lived my childhood years in a tiny, TINY town in Kansas.
If you wanted pretty gift wrap and ribbon, you drove a long way to get it and you most definitely didn’t waste it.
We carefully saved the ribbon in the aftermath of opening Christmas presents and would reuse what we could the next year.
I always loved all the pretty ribbon and how special our gifts looked.
Even more, and especially now that I’m a mom myself, I appreciate the care and thought and extra effort that went into the presentation of our gifts.
It’s something I realize that I am trying to do for my own family, and even though I can’t tie a really pretty bow for the life of me (trust me, my mom has tried to show me so many times!) I love to take what I can do and try to make it special.
My style looks a little different than the 90’s styles I grew up with, but I’d like to think that the intentionality and thoughtfulness behind our gifts is timeless.
Making gift wrap feel special can get really pricey, really fast. I hope that the budget friendly tips in my blog post below will give you some inspiration for beautifully wrapped packages that don’t increase your Christmas budget by very much!
It is also an honor to join with some amazing bloggers who are also sharing their gift wrap ideas!
My favorite thing is that you can take all of your favorite ideas, incorporate them with your own creative flair, and create your own gift wrap presentation that looks pretty under the tree but more importantly, shows your love to family and friends!
I hope you enjoy all of these Christmas gift wrap ideas! I’m off to actually try and finish wrapping a few more gifts over here!
