last year I shared with you how I wrapped my presents along with a little DIY and so this year I thought I'd share how I wrapped a hamper (Hamper Gift Guide HERE!) as well as some images I found on Pinterest to give inspiration for wrapping your presents...
Last week I posted my Gift Guide idea for a Christmas Hamper, so I thought I would show you what it looked like after I had wrapped it. It was really simple to do and I think it makes a lovely present. I lined the basket with tissue paper and filled it with the presents wrapped in two different types of paper. For cylindrical objects I tied twine into a bow at the top to make a half cracker like effect.
I then went searching on Pinterest for some wrapping inspiration for you...
This is such a sweet Idea... Instead of writing names on presents you could attach a photograph of the person or of yourself and the person the gift is for, so they know who it is from.
Leaves and Brown Paper:
You don't have to stick to shop brought gift tags, making your own can be lovely and why not decorate with some festive holly or foliage
This is definitely one for the creative, such an amazing alternative to using loads of paper. You could even make a scarf to wrap the present in, a two in one gift.
Have fun with your wrapping, getting a roll of cheap brown paper and decorating it with paint or pens is a unique way to stand out from the crowd. It would be especially cute if your children decorated it for other members of the family, so meaningful and a fun job for them to do also.
Unique Gift Tags:
A few sprigs and twigs from a tree attached to a name tag can be really beautiful and simple ways to tag and decorate a present. Especially if it is from a Christmas tree (they smell amazing also), watch out for the pines though... ouch!
Last but not least is using tree ornaments as tags you could even write the year and the persons name on the ornament to be re-used and something to remind them of you next year when it gets hung on the tree!
How will you be wrapping your presents this year?
