If you are looking for a clever new take on gift wrapping this holiday season, I have a few ideas for you! When we are spending, on average, 60% less on gifts this year, it is important that they are wrapped beautifully!
- Make it personal by adding your logo, monogram, or even photo on to wrapping paper at www.picturepaper.com. It is $16.95 per roll and it is so unique! You don’t even need a gift tag!
- Wrap up a few gifts for the same person with brown craft paper and tie them together with string. Attach a note saying “Brown paper packages tied up with string…These are a few of your favorite things!”
- For a small token or trinket, place your gift in a cool box that can always be displayed. I like these from West Elm. Tie them closed with a red or green ribbon and attach a simple tag. At $12.00 you can add a unique and everlasting wrapping to the gift.
- Help your friends go green by wrapping their gift in a re-usable grocery tote. I like these Chico Bags because they are avaliable in a lot of colors and can be wrapped up and carried with you later. The are $4.95 and, stuffed with tissue and tied with a ribbon, make a great wrap!
Another tip for family celebrations: Assign each member of the family a color and wrap each family member’s gifts in that color. It makes sorting the gifts a lot more fun!
