The 10 Most Gorgeous Christmas Gift-Wrapping Ideas on Pinterest
Get creative this holiday season
You’ve scoured the shelves, loaded up your shopping carts and spun the racks to assemble the perfect array of gifts. Now it’s time to wrap them. We headed to Pinterest to find beautiful new ways to present your presents, which you can steal for yourself below. Or go to PureWow’s Gift Guide board for even more inspiration.
Pair kraft Paper With Fresh Herbs
The natural sprigs, minimalist tags and striped baker’s twine take this basic paper to the next level.
Use a Silk Scarf to Go Paperless
We’re obsessed with this paper-free wrapping style. All you need is a colorful scarf or furoshiki (Japanese wrapping cloth) to create this eco-friendly presentation. (Also, two presents in one!)
Glue on Embellishments
Branch out of the usual printed paper and choose a sparkly neutral instead. Then glue some mini pom-poms to a twig and you’ve got a delightfully unexpected package.
Opt for Printed Ribbon
Mini pinecones, gingham ribbon, washi tape and greenery elevate this simple box to vintage-cool status.
Create a Darling Diorama
Relive your childhood and break out the toy cars and trucks to make an adorable wintry scene atop your gift. Chances are it will get a place of honor under the tree.
A fun party idea: Gather your best girls for an evening of wine and gift-wrapping. The theme: Bring your own pom-poms.
Top With a Tiny Tree
This is a fun one for kids. Help them draw a car onto kraft paper and finish it off with a faux snow-dusted Christmas tree.
Gifting a crowd? Shake things up by finishing each package with an initial. Not only will this help you stay organized; it also proves you are the queen of thoughtfulness. (Hint: The letters could also serve as ornaments. Gifts on gifts on gifts.)
Go Glam With Silk Flowers and Feathers
Elegant and unexpected: Pair florals with feathers, a spray of gold berries and twine.
Pick Out Pretty Postcards
Find some beautiful winterscapes and affix them to kraft paper with satin ribbon and glue for an archival feel.
