3 Nifty Ways to Wrap a Gift

Ever since Thanksgiving, I’ve been caught up in a present-buying, gift-wrapping frenzy. Whether you’re giving Christmas gifts to your family, Secret Santa gifts to your classmates, or just a regular old “You’re a Great Pal” gift, use these photos to guide you toward a creative way to wrap your little treasures.

My personal motto is: When in doubt, use more glitter. My photo doesn’t do this fancy foil wrapping paper justice. It looks silver, but when the light hits it, you can see rainbow shimmer. I cut out some hearts out of glitter paper, which is a perfect way to dress up a plainer wrapping paper.

If you want to go a little bit more rustic with your gift wrapping, try adding a big lacy doily! I just taped this down over my adorable red and white toadstool paper. For an extra touch, I arranged some little pine branches on top of the present.

My personal favorite way to wrap a gift is with an old map. Fancy maps can be found at any craft store, but I found this Oregon map in my mom’s car. Then, I tied a big bow with some antique lace to give this box the perfect vintage vibe.

Good luck on your present-wrapping endeavors!
