If you’re on track with our suggestions to prepare for the festive season, then you may have started thinking about Christmas gift wrapping themes. For some this is the equivalent of a crafty activity to help unwind from work, but for others this can be yet another daunting “chore”. Who cares how gifts are wrapped anyway? Kids will enjoy the experience of ripping the paper to uncover the gift inside, regardless of what the wrapping looks like. However, nice wrapping isn’t as difficult to achieve as it may initially seem. Honestly. Are you still doubting? Let me share a few tips with you!

Hemp cord

An easy option is to go for some festive wrapping paper and finish it with hemp cord.

Animal cut outs

Eye-catching for the little ones (and the grown-ups too). If you’re feeling crafty just grab some buttons, or even felt protective pads and some left over paper to turn your wrapped gift into an animal cut out.

Effortlessly stylish! Pair a nice satin ribbon with craft paper and sit back. Less is more in this case.

Christmas themed ornaments

Why not just finish off your gifts with some Christmas themed ornaments. Jiggle bells, snowflakes, baubles, wooden cut outs. Let your imagination flow.

Stencil can be an easy option if you want to take a practical approach and wrapping paper in bulk. Different shaped stencils and colours can help you achieve a more grown-up or child-appropriate look.

There’s something about plain craft paper and some greenery. Evergreen sprigs, rosemary sprigs, holly… Get out to you back garden and pick whatever is available. That simple!

Either add a final cinnamon touch to those evergreen sprigs or simply secure a couple of cinnamon sticks with cooking twine.

Card cut outs

Colourful cooking twine is a great Christmas wrapping aid. Plain paper, cooking twine and some card cut outs with merry messages. As simple as that.

Pine cones

Do you have some old pot pourri bags you could “recycle” pinecones from? If not, check out for small pinecones if you’re out picking those evergreen sprigs. Natural elements never go wrong.
