Homemade Treasures: Christmas Gift Wrapping

Homemade Treasures: Christmas Gift Wrapping

Christmas is a time for giving, and by now most of us have bought (or at least planned) our gifts to our loved ones – the next step is to get them wrapped! From patterned paper and ribbons tied in bows, to gift bags stuffed to the brim with tissue paper, there are many ways we can conceal our gifts, ready for the 25th!

This year, why not present your gifts with a personal touch? In this week’s blog post, we aim to get your creative mind whirring with inspiration.

Santa’s Sack Gift Bags

These charming material gift bags are an elegant solution to wrapping the smallest of gifts, without making them feel as such. Made from a sweater arm sewn at one end, they are easy to create, and are a delightful alternative to the typical paper bags. To craft your own, find the full instructions here.

‘Save the Date’ Wrapping Paper

This quick trick is a lovely way to personalise some otherwise plain white paper, and is perfect for your Secret Santa. The beautiful checked pattern created above with a Christmas Day dated stamp, is simple yet contemporary, and looks professional tied with co-ordinating candy cane ribbon. Play around with patterns and designs to mix and match looks.

Make your presents extra special by personalising with this bespoke detail, and create a keepsake in addition to what’s inside. These monochrome name beads are easier to read, and the colours work well with almost every theme.

Doily Details

Doily’s make a delicate embellishment, and the best thing is that there are no rules on how to make them, and each one is unique! Add a pop of colour with festive red, green, or gold paper, or use classic white to create a snowflake. Tie the doily to your gift with a thin piece of string that helps to show off the unique designs.

We hope this post has sparked your crafty side and inspired you to get personal with your Christmas gift wrapping.
