Chalkboard inspired wrapping is a great idea for an easy but fun gift wrap!
Use a Sharpie to get creative on some plain wrapping paper and create some gorgeous DIY designs
Download this gorgeous pineapple printable wrapping paper and give your presents a tropical look for Christmas! (Plus pineapples are totally on trend right now!)
Another beautiful printable wrapping paper is this gorgeous floral design!
Get creative with some washi tape to make simple kraft paper wrapping really pop.
This wrapping is simple but beautiful. I love the white screen printed tags, you could do something similar by either printing on brown kraft paper to make the labels or by using a white marker on kraft paper.
DIY your own pretty gift wrapping paper with some kraft paper and paint! I love this idea. Add some twine and a sprig of something green (I like rosemary!) to really take it to the next level.
Use some twine and felt to add a cute Christmas tree to your presents.
Or add a Christmas tree to your presents by using washi tape and some different sized hole punchers.
Add some gorgeous postcards to the top of your presents. Or, if you save your old Christmas cards cut the front side off the card and stick that on top of your present for a really Christmassy look.
Use a hole punch to cut out lots of tiny stars then use some clear sticky tape to create a stripe of stars across your present. This would look gorgeous with coloured stars as well!
Make your own polka dot wrapping paper using a stamp pad and eraser on a pencil! This would also work well in other colours if you can’t find a white stamp pad.
Get some red and green paint, some red pom-poms, some glue, a sharpie and some gorgeous kiddie fingers and make this DIY fingerprint reindeer wrapping paper. Super cute!!
More finger painting fun, this time to create some cute holiday lights on your wrapping paper! This one is super easy as you just need some paint and a sharpie.
Use some letter stamps and some pretty ribbon to make a simple but gorgeous wrapping for your presents.
Use some metallic pens (or metallic Sharpies) to freehand some fancy designs onto some kraft paper.
Go for a gorgeous monochrome colour scheme for something a bit different.
Use old books or newspapers to create some typographic gift wrapping.
Add a little Christmas tree to the top of your present!
Add some fresh rosemary sprigs to your present to make it smell amazing and look adorable.
I think this is my favourite!! Some blank paper and some crayons, perfect for kids presents.
Use some fabric to wrap the middle of your present for a lovely layered effect.
Or use a tea towel to wrap the whole present! I love this, my mother-in-law does it with my presents every year and I love the gorgeous tea towels she picks to wrap with. Plus it’s super practical!!
Use some pom-poms and hot glue them to some wrapping paper for these gorgeous spotty gifts!
Another pineapple to finish off the list for good measure! What a cute idea to wrap a bottle of wine or champagne with chocolates to make it look like a pineapple. Top marks to whoever gives this one a go!!
