If you are like us, sometimes you want your gift wrapping to look extra special. We have found some creative and inexpensive ways to decorate your packages. It is so much more fun to wrap gifts when you know they will look really pretty once you are finished. We have some great gift wrapping ideas to help you take your gift wrapping to a whole new level.
I know, you are thinking that these gift wrapping ideas will cost so much extra! This can be very inexpensive if you follow this one rule. Always buy your gift wrapping supplies right after Christmas or during clearances! This will save you a ton of money and who doesn’t want to save money?
You want to start with coordinating wrapping paper and cute bows & ribbons. We chose red, white and some brown for a rustic touch. Little goodies to tie on can really take a package from dull to awesome! Sometimes it is the little extras that can really add a lot!
Some buffalo plaid paper, rustic red ribbon and a simple candy cane really gave this package a cute presentation. Not to mention the candy cane added a little something extra for the person receiving this gift to enjoy. These gift wrapping ideas sometimes make you hungry. 🙂
Brown craft paper has become very popular for gift wrapping over the past few years. If you enjoy a country themed idea then pair the brown craft paper with some red berries. Tie it off with some red and white string. Very simplistic and yet very beautiful in a rustic kind of way.
If you enjoy a more traditional look but want something a little different, use a couple strips of super narrow ribbon and place the ribbon at the top of the package. This is a completely different look from the wide ribbon tied in the center of the package. Still very traditional, yet with a modern flair.
Wire Rimmed Ribbon
Tie a couple of coordinating wrapped packages with a wide ribbon made into a bow at the top. The fact that the packages don’t match but are coordinating gives a different look. Tying them together with a very wide ribbon and a bow top off this really cute package set. Some young girl would be very excited to receive this beautiful set!
Tie Packages Together
Plain twine tying packages together can give a very simplistic rustic look. Gift wrapping ideas are truly endless with whatever style you prefer!
Buffalo Plaid Ribbon
Flannel ribbon in the buffalo plaid print is very popular this year. Some brown craft paper and twine completes this earthy look.
A cute curly bow marries perfectly with this brown craft paper gift wrap.
Cute Gift Tags
Once again you can join a glamorous shiny gift tag with some natural twine in perfect harmony. A little old world meets modern today.
These all blend together perfectly. A little country meets some city. It just seems to work!
Remember, shop during great sales and clearances! Buy coordinating wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, gift tags and other adornments during this bargain-buying time. Having exactly what you need when you need it is half the battle. Don’t wait until the night before you need to wrap to try and find cute and coordinating materials. Save money, time and frustration by shopping a year ahead and always being prepared! Then you will be able to put these gift wrapping ideas to use next year.
The recipients of your gifts will be even more touched when they see the extra effort you went to on their behalf. You will also enjoy the giving part even more because your gifts look extra nice!
Gift wrapping doesn’t have to be hard at all. The important thing is having everything on hand when you are ready to wrap that special gift for that special person!
Also, check out this tradition we do at Christmas! We got so tired of the classic grab bag exchange…so now, we do it with a twist!
Have a great day and if you haven’t started your Christmas wrapping yet, you may want to get started on it very soon! 🙂
