Brown Paper Packages Tied Up with String



Sorry I missed a day guys. I got home at like midnight on Saturday and didn't have a post ready so I decided to skip Sunday and start back up today! So for today's Day 7 of Blogmas I'm sharing some fun ways to wrap all those Christmas presents! I love wrapping gifts, whether for Christmas or a birthday or any other special occasion. I love wrapping paper and finding cute ribbons and adornments and just being creative with it. But if you're needing a little help on how to wrap I've gotcha covered. I'm sharing some super cute ideas a la Pinterest! So let's get to them!



Go with a Theme
Have a theme for all your gifts and stick with it. Maybe it's sticking with a group of colors/patterns or a general look of how you want them to be. 



All Tied Up
Add a finishing touch or make it the centerpiece with ribbon. Use wide ribbons for big bows or bakers twine for a more minimalistic look. 


Chalk Out
Love the chalkboard look? Take black craft paper or matte wrapping paper and wrap all your gifts. Using a white Sharpie or paint pen decorate the packages with doodles and calligraphy. 



When in Doubt, Monogram It Out
Personalize the gifts with the recipients initial. You can get letters at any craft store and attach with ribbon or glue to the paper. 


Layered Up
Don't be afraid to layer! Who says you can't have bows, adornments and a tag? Layer them up! 


Go Au Naturale
Going for a woodsey feel? Use greenery, pine-cones, mistletoe, cinnamon sticks, cranberries, holly and any other woodsey/earthy Christmas adornments. 


All the Same
Or keep it simple and sophisticated and wrap all the gifts the same and personalize them with lettering. 



Be creative with wrapping! Accessorize using ornaments, figurines, bows, natural elements, ribbons, gift tags, lettering, bells, stickers, candy canes, flowers and pretty much whatever else you can attach on to the box. The sky is the limit! 

Great places to look for wrapping paper, ribbon, tags, etc., is Target and HomeGoods/Marshall's/TJ Maxx. All of their wrapping sections are on POINT this year! Like I've bought so much from Target. Their section is heaven.
