Creative Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

One of the things we get excited for most during the holiday season is brainstorming (and Pinteresting!) ways we are going to creatively wrap our gifts this year. We like to pick one night and sip hot chocolate, turn on our favorite Christmas movies, reflect on the year that we’ve had, and knock out all of our wrapping. Whether it be dressing up plain craft paper, or mixing and matching prints, we’ve gathered our favorite creative holiday gift wrap ideas for every DIY’er!

Minimal Clay Gift Tags

These tags are so simple yet add the most special touch to your gifts – you can even have the kids join in! Due to the fact that you can stamp anything you want, these make for the perfect gift toppers all year round. We tend to lean towards how simple and minimal they are, but feel free to paint or decorate them as well!

We all know that gift wrapping typically gets ripped open within seconds and thrown into the recycle bin, which is why some of us like to keep our wrapping a bit more practical. All you need for these adorable packages is craft paper, a small paint brush, and black paint. I don’t think it could get any easier!

Mini Boxwood Wreaths

A Burst of Beautiful

Christmas gifts that match your holiday decor? Always a yes in our book! Incorporating mini boxwood wreaths on your gifts will make your presents act as chic decor under the tree. Insider tip: make sure you don’t add the wreaths too early as they will dry out.

We first started seeing stars at NYC’s Bridal Fashion Week and we knew it was a trend that we wanted to hang on to. This star garland is modern and gives you the ability to keep a monochromatic color palette or even go wild with color if it fits your fancy!

Almost Makes Perfect

We love anything that has to do with hand lettering, especially during the holidays! We especially love how easy these downloadable and printable tags are. Just print, trim and punch a hole for your ribbon! We’re also thinking of using twine to add to any baked goods we may be delivering to neighbors this year 😉

Wrapping paper can often be picked over as we head into mid-December and we can’t always find exxxactly what we’re looking for. Why not create your own? All you need to create multiple different designs is scissors, gold tape, black and white twine, a white paint marker and greenery (evergreen and eucalyptus work great!).
