Christmas Wrapping Ideas.

Friday, 11 December 2015

As I am writing this we are almost two weeks into December! whaaaat?! The christmas decs are up, most of the presents have been bought and the baileys are flowing! Today I thought I would share a few of my tips to dress up your christmas wrapping.


The paper - The paper you use doesn't have to be christmas paper, I got this lovely blue and white print paper from Asda for just £1. It kinda looks christmasy but its not your traditional bright green and red vintage looking paper.

The string - I do not think a present is complete without a bow. I didn't want to use ribbon as you never really get much on a roll and it can be pricey in the end. This year I decided to go with garden twine, I picked up mine from HomeBase for like £2.

The details -  I love adding little details to the presents I have lovingly wrapped. Last year I went with little paper fawns and golden bells. This year I thought I would add these little clay disks I made agesss ago, just to add a chic touch.

(The best bit) Chocolateee - Everybody loves a bit of chocolate so I always like to add some in somewhere. For my nephews and nieces presents I placed some little pudding chocolates into individual bags and tided them onto their presents. Its a really cheap way to dress up a gift. I also added candy canes, obvs.

How do you dress up your christmas wrapping?

  4. What a post... I'm like a kid in a sweetshop at Christmas and STILL have all my wrapping to do. So what great ideas, you may have just inspired me!

    Starting up a new travel/lifestyle blog, there's not much there yet but if you could please leave a little comment and check out the content so far I'd be hugely appreciative. Thanks! :)

  5. We don't wrap our papers, we just put it in nice little bags everyone draws a present from when it is their turn That way we save some paper and I don't have to worry about wrapping. But I admit I´d love to get some candy cane on my presents...
