That’s a Wrap: Holiday Gift Wrap with Personality

p_BHG134568[1]Whether you are making, baking, or buying your presents this year, wrap them in a way that truly shows you care. Here are a few affordable yet creative ways to personalize your gift wrap.

A Simple Statement
Kraft paper goes from blah to beautiful with some colorful ribbon and a few personal touches. Bonus—one roll will last you the entire season! Last year I wrapped all of my boxes in Kraft paper and used red or plaid colored ribbon from Michaels to spruce them up. Raffia and twine also work well for this simple and rustic look. Finish the package off with an adorable vintage gift tag from etsy.com. You can apply this idea to plain brown lunch bags too—just fold over the top and punch out two holes to thread the ribbon through. They are great for gifting coffee!

Express Yourself with Color
Don’t be afraid to ditch the traditional red and green and go for something bold! Purples, golds, blues, silvers, pinks—really any color—can work for the holiday. Start by choosing a color scheme that inspires you and buy a couple of different rolls of wrapping paper—one with a print and one solid to mix and match. Paper-Source and The Container Store have some great options for holiday gift wrap. Use double-stick tape to attach a cut-out strip of the patterned paper around a box wrapped in the solid paper, or vice-versa. To keep your gifts unified choose a solid colored ribbon that will work with all of the packages. If your color scheme doesn’t scream holiday, attach a jingle bell or a glass ball ornament in a complimentary color to the ribbon. Check out cb2.com for some unique colored glass ornaments.
