Half the fun of receiving a gift is unwrapping it. And a beautifully wrapped gift just adds to the excitement.
At this time of year you’ve probably got loads of gifts to give. And no doubt, you want too wrap them in style. But because of the pressures of this hectic season, you may not have as much time as you’d like to dedicate a lot of effort into wrapping each of your presents. So here are some quick and easy gift wrap ideas for maximum impact but with the minimum amount of fuss.
Gifted Gift Bows
It doesn’t get much easier than Gifted Gift Bows. Simply slip one of these ribbon bands directly onto any object to turn it into an instant gift. They are also perfect for awkwardly shaped presents that are hard to wrap. Rather than struggling with the paper, and trying to fold it at odd angles, slip on a gift bow and you’re done!
Nature inspired gift wrap
A simple brown paper package tied up with string is totally transformed with the addition of this nature-inspired gift topper using pine cones, berries and leaves. And the rustic look echoes the season perfectly. You can also experiment with twigs, and different shades of leaves. So why not take a walk outside to see what you can find. And create your own take on gift wrapping with a touch of nature.
Newspaper gift wrap
Recycled your old newspapers and turn them into gift wrapping paper. The addition of a newspaper flower embellished with some curls of coloured ribbon create a great effect.
Pleated gift wrap
This plain purple gift wrap paper is totally transformed with the addition of three folded pleats and a couple of matching coloured ribbons. It’s easy to do, but creates such a wow effect.
Recycled sweater gift bags
These gorgeous looking gift bags are made from old sweaters. They are perfect for presenting all kinds of gifts. Just finish off with a ribbon tied around. They are a great way to recycle any unwearable jumpers you may have. And the gift recipient will probably love their cosy looking gift bag, just as much as their present!
