Beautiful Present Wrapping Ideas and Inspiration

December 22, 2014

I’m sure you all have all your presents wrapped pretty and set under the tree.  If you’re like me, however, you haven’t wrapped one. single. gift. yet.  I did however finally BUY all our gifts yesterday, so I’m feeling pretty good this morning!

Since I’ve been drooling over some of the wrapping ideas that have been linked up at our link parties this month, I thought I’d round up my favorites and share some inspiration with you.  You know … in case you’re also a procrastinator like me.

Here we go:

Brown paper wrapping seems to be a favorite trend (or, more likely it’s just a classic).  I love the neutral look of this embellished brown paper wrapping …

or you could take the brown paper look and go ultra-girly with tulle, twine, and glitter tape:

Or … see what you can create with some scrapbook paper, stamps, and other fun embellishments:

Wine is one of my favorite gifts to give.  To make it more festive, simply tie it up in a handmade bag:

Or hand stamp some pre made bags …

And finally, you’ll need some tags for that gift!

For a very unique look, try these leather gift tags:

Maybe something a bit more simple, but still glam?  How about these gold foiled tags:

Good luck with all your wrapping (or Good For You, if it’s all done)!  Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas week ahead!!
