Wrapping Up Christmas

I love seeing gifts wrapped under the tree. I can’t wrap so I’m more of a gift bag kinda girl, it’s sad & ugly when I try to wrap. I think this is where my present wrapping envy comes from. My family is really creative and there’s never 2 gifts wrapped exactly the same.

It’s sad that when I have kids I’m going to have to sweet talk their grandmother into wrapping all the gifts so I don’t get attacked by the little one & a gift bag or I’m going to have to sit down with a glass of wine and figure it out.

I’ve found a few of my favorite wrappings. Not only are they fully function as wrapped gifts but they are also really pretty to look at. If your thinking of trying new wrapping ways this Christmas maybe you’d fancy one of these ideas. How do your gifts turn out wrapped? Is there a science to it all, I’m not good with science or math… So if that’s the case in doomed to gift bags for life.

    My wrapping skills vary based on how patient I’m feeling. From the front they all turn out much the same but on the back you can tell if I tried or not. I never measure though. I love brown paper for wrapping when it’s paired with gold but I haven’t used it for years. All of my favourites from your wrapping ideas are the brown paper ones – I’m going to have to get back into using it I think.

    I’m terrible at wrapping gifts too. They always look like a child did them!

  3. I usually just go for cute wrapping paper, but I don’t really do much else unless I stick a bow on it. I really love the simple brown wrapped gifts with peoples name in gold in them in the first photo you show.

    I’m okay at wrapping presents, I just don’t like doing all of them at once though. Some years I’d have all my presents in plain gift bags and either decorate them or just write the person’s name on the bag (depending on how lazy I felt that day). One thing I like about the bag idea is that you can reuse them.

    Beautiful ideas! I love presents under the tree too. Unfortunately, I think this year will be a very last minute wrap up.
