What You’ll Need:
I can’t explain when and why I developed a hatred for tacky Christmas wrapping paper, but for the past three years I have wrapped all of my Christmas gifts in a simple, plain Kraft paper and styled it up with some ribbon and trinkets.
This year, I of course stuck with my Kraft paper tradition but got a little more personal. I ditched the name tags and added a sentimental touch with polaroid prints. You can get polaroid style prints from hundreds of online printing companies, but these came from Inkifi. I was very happy with the quality, price, and experience. They were delivered in less than a week. For a truly sentimental approach, you could also use real polaroids or old photos.
This look turned out great and was pretty simple. Here's the rundown:
1. Wrap your gift/gift box in Kraft paper
2. Tie up the box with twine or ribbon
3. Clip a clothes pin onto the twin/ribbon
4. Clip in the polaroid photo
5. Add any extra trinkets
I’m also gifting a couple bottles of wine. For those, I threw on a ribbon and one of my homemade cork Christmas tree ornaments. What are your gift wrapping tricks, trips, and ideas? Drop them in a comment below!
