Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

For me, the gift wrap is half the gift…but for many,  gift wrapping is such a chore.  Here are a few very clever ideas to break you out of the gift wrapping rut this Christmas.

Christmas gift wrapping with Dollar Tree itemsFirst stop, Ellinée. Those ladies know how to work a dollar…check out how they made fabulous gift attire with Dollar Tree finds!

Christmas gift wrapping food giftsIt’s so easy to package sweet treats…check out how Glorious Treats shared her goodness over on The Twinery.  I love paper loaf pans,  you can bake right in them and wrap them right up.  You can find them and baker’s twine at Packaging Specialties.

Christmas gift wrapping with washi tape ornamentsMake and turn a few of these fun washi tape ornaments from The Southern Institute into pretty gift tags.

Christmas gift wrapping with paper strawsI know it’s hard to part with your paper straws, but how cute are they as these gift toppers from Centsational Girl? If you don’t have any, check out Packaging Specialties, Paper Source, and if you are lucky, Michael’s.  I found a pack of green and red ones there.

Christmas gift wrapping with washi tapeI’m so addicted to washi tape and I never get tired of Pure Joy Events’ holiday shoot, complete with oh-so-easy decorating with free printables.

Christmas gift wrapping with washi tape and stickersIt doesn’t get easier than pretty tape and stickers! Check out Our Workshop’s fun ideas.

Christmas gift wrapping with newspaperKeep it recycled with newspaper wrapping from Allora Handmade.

Christmas gift wrapping with duct tapeHow about using duct tape? Studio DIY has some fun with it and black masking tape.
