Presents bought? Check. Presents wrapped? Err… While some love it and settle down in front of a festive film with their sticky tape and scissors, others dread the thought of wrapping their Christmas gifts. Whatever your feelings towards wrapping, it just can’t be avoided come December. But don’t worry, we’re here to help with our favourite Christmas gift wrapping ideas for 2017. For a pile of perfect presents under the tree, we’ve got everything all wrapped up.
Grown ups will love Katie Leamon’s luxury navy wrapping paper with gold foil stars. Pop on the matching tags with grosgrain ribbon and you have yourself a sophisticated gift for the most stylish of people. If you’re piling up the gifts, wrap some in Katie Leamon’s cream paper with copper stars for an effective contrasting look.
For kids’ wrapping paper, or simply paper for the young at heart, Nancy & Betty Studio’s cheerful robin design will be a favourite. Printed on 100% recycled matt paper, this thick paper will ensure there’s no peeking before the big day!
Sadly, not every gift comes in a box. Got something to wrap that’s an odd shape? Pop the present in one of our pretty and contemporary paper gift bags and job done. No faffing about trying to make something spherical look neat and ripping the paper in the process.
Tape It Up and Top It Off
Now for the fun part! You’ve chosen your paper, now it’s time to add the finishing touches to your gifts. That means cute toppers, washi tape, ribbons and twine. The gold glitter twine from Knot & Bow and glitter tape from Ohh Deer look particularly effective when matched with Katie Leamon’s star print papers. And for Nancy & Betty Studio’s robins, Ohh Deer’s striped candy cane-style tape will keep things under wraps.
Now you have a stack of beautifully wrapped presents, it’s time to add your cards. Most of us will get heaps of cards, including from those people we haven’t seen in years - it’s just what happens at Christmas time. To ensure yours really stands out among the rest, we’ve got some fabulous unusual Christmas cards for your loved ones to open. Some of them are almost a present in themselves!
Top of the list when it comes to quirky Christmas cards is our range from My Design Co. These creative minds have come up with cracker-shaped cards that go ‘bang’ when they’re opened, just like a real cracker! Inside each card is paper hat and joke and there’s even space for you to insert a gift card, for a novel way to give a voucher. There are also plenty of designs to choose from for all ages.
For easy and effective Christmas gift wrapping ideas, we’ve got everything you need to get this year all wrapped up. Our top tip? Put on some Christmas music, pour yourself a glass of mulled wine and make wrapping something to look forward to!
