Wrapping up the gift may be more fun than actually buying it!
As I dug around my basement storage bins, I could see how many options I have when gift wrapping this year. When wrapping for so many different personalities, I love to have these options!
Let's start with a simple gift.
Wrap it up with your favorite paper (store bought, kraft or newspaper!).
Have twine or ribbon on hand.
Now, let's personalize.
FOR THE NATURE LOVER.
A simple sprig will add a sweet touch to any package.
Go for something dried like this eucalyptus or seasonal like pine or holly.
Be sure to remove any thorns and avoid smashing the gentle leaves when traveling with this gift!
FOR THE THRIFTY.
Finding small holiday trinkets or vintage ornaments around the thrift stores? Put them to good use and decorate your gift wrap!
Feel free to deconstruct any of your finds to get just what you need & not overwhelm the package.
FOR THE CRAFTY.
Don't let your holiday cards from last year go to waste. Cut out your favorite part of the card and repurpose it as a gift tag this year!
Already recycled last year's cards? This also works with (holiday edition) magazine clippings.
FOR THE VINTAGE LOVER.
Hop online and Google your favorite vintage holiday images.
Best searches: "vintage holiday" & "old fashioned christmas". I also like the idea of using a still from a favorite calssic holiday movie.
Print, cut out & use as gift tag!
Happy holidays to you and yours!
