Christmas Gift Wrap Ideas

Think outside the box when wrapping Christmas gifts this holiday season. Here are some unique gift wrapping ideas that will give your gifts an added edge.

Beyond gift wrap

On some of our packages we used butcher’s paper, faux suede and tulle. You can also use felt, tea towels (dish towels), newspaper, magazine pages and brown paper bags.

Get rid of ribbon

Secure a wrapped bottle of wine with a ponytail holder or wrap a necktie around a box. You can also use twine, raffia, gold wire and upholstery trim. For a little girl’s gift, tie on a new skipping rope!

Easy embellishments

Dress up a gift with inexpensive pom-poms or feathers. Other finishing touches include pinecones, small bells and cinnamon sticks.

You can even add a little extra gift on the outside of the package. Tie on a silver key ring, a cookie cutter or a candy cane.
