Get these free printable Christmas gift tags to add a custom touch to your gift wrapping!
Welcome to my favorite Christmas post of the year…all about gift wrapping. Call me crazy, but I really do love to wrap gifts, especially at Christmas. I’ve developed a system that makes it super easy and when everything is wrapped, it all looks pretty and coordinated. I talked about this in last year’s gift wrap post, but I’ll go over everything again so you can see how simple this is. Plus I’ve got some cute free printable Christmas gift tags to add a custom touch to your presents.
For several years now I’ve wrapped our Christmas presents in brown kraft paper and one other pattern. Last year that pattern was red plaid, this year it’s this cute merry and bright typewriter font paper. (All sources will be listed at the end.)
By sticking to just two wrapping paper patterns, you won’t have a bunch of random rolls leftover, plus everything will look cohesive. Next is the ribbon. I try to find two or three ribbon patterns that coordinate and have the same color theme. Like last year, this year that color is red. I was going to branch out and maybe go with a different color. Green or perhaps navy blue. When I went to look at ribbon, there was nothing that interested me at all. I searched online and at all my local stores with no luck. So red won out again! Honestly, you can’t go wrong with red and there is always a huge selection.
Another little touch that is easy and inexpensive is a gift tie-on. I like to use natural elements like pine twigs or cinnamon sticks. Other ideas are small ornaments, cookie cutters, or tiny wreaths. If your gift is for someone who likes to cook or bake, tie together a few Christmas Recipe Cards and attach them to the present.
Here’s a little collection of handmade items you can put together for your family and friends. Links to all the posts detailing each gift are below. The easiest way to package a gift like this is to bundle it up in a gift bag. White tissue paper adds a fresh element and a few fun tie-ons finish the presentation.
