A beautifully wrapped gift can really show someone you care. These clever do-it-yourself ideas are sure to impress everyone on your Christmas gift list without breaking the bank.
1. Adorn Your Gifts
Pretty up your presents by attaching bells or ornaments. Use the same color ribbon on all your packages under the Christmas tree to make a cohesive look with different patterned wrapping papers.
2. Match Gift Tags To Your Color Scheme
Pair pre-printed gift tags that reinforce your Christmas decorating scheme with boxes wrapped in chocolate and metallic to add character under the tree.
3. Wrap Gifts To Match Your Decor
Embellish gifts with Christmas ornaments that coordinate with your decor.
4. Make Your Own Gift Tags
Make your own gingerbread man gift tags out of playing cards. Use a cookie cutter to trace the shape onto a deck of cards. Cut out and punch a hole in the tops to string onto Christmas gifts and ribbons. Bright paper finishes the look.
5. Get Creative With Gift Tags
Save money by making your own gift tags. Use a color copier to make copies of tartan fabrics, and cut it into rectangles to create gift tags. Add bells as a finishing touch.
6. Give Goodie Bags
Let your decorations double as goodie bags. These faux cardinals roost on baskets of treats that can be gifts for departing guests or something extra on a Christmas morning.
7. Wrap Gifts in Burlap
Send your guests away with something thoughtful to mark the occasion by wrapping a simple gift in burlap. Display them by the gate or door so that friends can pick them up as they depart.
8. Choose a Gift Wrapping Style
Set the scene with beautifully packaged gifts under the tree. Try a traditional, natural, vintage or glitzy look for picture-perfect packages.
9. Wrap Luxuriously
Layer varying widths of ribbon on top of each other for a pretty presentation. Finish off packages with colored tags embellished with calligraphy.
10. Forget Red & Green
Give your gifts decor-worthy style with patterned papers, white satin ribbons, and clever tie-ons.
