Take inspiration from our gift wrapping tips and make sure your presents look perfectly presentable under the tree this year.
We know it’s what’s inside that counts, but we also think what’s on the outside is pretty important too. That’s why we’ve come up with seven creative ways to wrap your presents this Christmas. They’ll almost look too good to open. (Almost).
If you’ve still got nothing to wrap, take a look at our photo products and create a gift that you’ll be excited to give.
Use a photo print of the person receiving the gift instead of a traditional gift tag. It’s a lovely way to personalise the present and is much more fun than boring old paper and pen.
Natural elements like pinecones and flowers make wonderful accents. Use them instead of traditional ribbons and bows for a rustic finish.
What you’ll need: wrapping paper, pinecones or flowers
An old map from a place you have visited together is perfect for creating decoration on your gift. Create a bow from it for a thoughtful touch. Even better if you’re wrapping up a photo book from your trip.
What you’ll need: an old map, ribbons
Invest in some chalk board wrapping paper for a fun and unique way to wrap your gifts. You can customise it with personal messages, doodles and whatever else you fancy.
What you’ll need: chalk board paper, chalk
Create origami bows and decorations to give your presents a thrifty finish. You can also create origami gift boxes which is surprisingly simple.
What you’ll need: coloured paper, wrapping paper
Create a pouch out of wrapping paper to go on the front of your gift and put something small inside. We love hiding candy canes in them for a sweet little extra.
What you’ll need: wrapping paper, candy canes or another small gift
Use little stamps to write a personal message on your present. This works best on non-glossy wrapping paper – like the tan paper shown above.
What you’ll need: letter stamps & ink, matte wrapping paper, extra paper for cut-outs, ribbons
