Four Ways to Wrap Your Gifts & Three Curated Gift Guides

Hello, design enthusiasts! Today is all about Holiday Gifting! I’m thrilled to share four delightful ways to wrap your presents beautifully this festive season. Let’s dive into these fabulous gift-wrapping ideas and take a look at our curated gift guides.

1. Adding Elements to your Ribbon

The first idea draws inspiration from the charm of orange slices often used in holiday decor. Using a gorgeous matte brown paper and brown ribbon, I crafted bows and added orange slices, cinnamon sticks, and sprigs of Cedar for an easy, affordable, and elegant touch.

Pro tip: maintain a themed but varied look under the tree by using consistent colors and ribbons of different sizes.

2. Jingle Bells

Next up, the second idea is inspired by the festive jingle of bells. Embracing a monochromatic look with beautiful art paper and a silk beige ribbon, I added cascading bells with twine for a touch of rustic elegance.

The brown and rust patina of the bells complements the overall holiday decor theme seamlessly.

3. Vintage Cards

For the third idea, I took an unconventional route, using vintage Christmas cards as gift toppers.

Pairing them with a petite stripe wrapping paper and a lovely olive velvet ribbon created a unique and nostalgic aesthetic, adding a distinctive charm to your holiday gifts.

4. Hand Crafted Gingerbread House Gift Wrap

And for the grand finale, I tried my hand at crafting gingerbread house-themed gift wraps.

Using brown lunch sacks or small boxes and fabric paint, I freehanded gingerbread houses, topped with red velvet bows and sprigs of Cedar. It’s a bit more time-consuming but undoubtedly a fun and crafty project, especially if you involve the kids.

Gift Guides

Now that your gifts are beautifully wrapped, let’s shift our focus to the holiday gifting fun. We’ve curated three fantastic gift guides.

The first for The Garden Lover, featuring copper watering cans and stylish garden boots. Another for The Homemaker, showcasing champagne coups and elegant scents for the home. Lastly, a Self-Care Guide with shearling slippers, self-heating mugs, and infrared sauna blankets. You can find the links to these guides below.
