Original gift wrapping ideas

Are you looking for creative ways to wrap your Christmas presents this year? Here are some great ideas to inspire you!

Nature

What better way to save some time, money and the environment than to decorate your gifts using things you find in nature? Cinnamon sticks, pinecones, branches or leaves and sea shells: so many options to help you offer unique presents!

Santa’s gift bag

Why don’t you just skip the wrapping entirely and make a replica of Santa’s gift bag? It’s convenient and it has the advantage of adding to the magic and mystery of Christmas!

Kraft paper

Kraft paper is super versatile! You can keep it simple and dress it up with beautiful multicolored ribbons or turn it into a work of art by letting your kids express their creativity with some paint or crayons!

Personalized message

White wrapping paper, colored markers, a touching message of your own, and voila! A super fun personalized gift!

Flowers

These flowers made of fabric are an irresistible addition to any Christmas gift and can replace the traditional ribbons for a touch of luxury on your gift-wrapping!

Jewelry and hair pins

Instead of wrapping your presents with ribbons, use necklaces or hair pins to fasten the bag. It’s a nice little additional gift, and it provides a really trendy and festive look to your present!

Homemade ribbons

To be different and original, create your own ribbons that can't be found in stores! You can use anything from a skipping rope, colored tape, belts, etc… Look around, you never know what might inspire you!

Homemade labels

Are you a fan of scrapbooking? Here is your opportunity to use your talents to create beautiful custom labels for your Christmas gifts.

Recycle clothes

You have a dress you no longer wear? Why not recycle it to wrap a present this year? Tie it all up with a bow on top or use buttons or safety pins.
