Looking for unique Christmas gift wrapping ideas? I'm sharing some awesome wrapped Christmas gifts that you can do with minimal supplies!
Can you honestly tell me you've seen a cuter wrapped Christmas gift? I made a few different versions, so I'll break it down for you. Spoiler alert, all the texture that was added was up-cycled and you can do it, too!
I wrote this post years ago and it was a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BlogHer for Walmart Photo. Since then though, I've updated it with even more great present ideas for you to use!
Unique Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas
- Pick your paper and use that as a baseline.
- Add some texture by looking through the house for fabric remnants (yep, that leather and gray piece are both small leftover remnants).
- Keep adding fabric, ribbon, or even photo ornaments (to use as gift tags) until you get the combo that you want.
- Once your trimmings are all picked out, start wrapping your presents.
Tip for wrapping Christmas presents:
When cutting your paper, cut face side up so that you can keep a straight line. The straighter the line, the nicer the wrapping will be. *Some paper rolls have cutting guidelines on the back, but if the one you pick doesn't... just flip it over and use the pattern as your guide. Also, that tidbit was courtesy of my years as a retail (gift-wrapping) queen at Cracker Barrel.
Another tip: I think simple Christmas wrapping ideas are best. You can make bows out of anything. They don't have to be fancy to look cute.
Instead of using gift tags, use photo ornaments as a "keepsake" Christmas present on top of the actual wrapped Christmas present.
I really love the idea of using photo ornaments as gift tags or in place of bows for Christmas presents. Plus, I know whoever receives them will have a huge smile on their face when they see them.
