holiday gift wrap ideas

It's getting to be that time! Wrapping presents until your thumb gets sore from the sharp edge of the scotch tape dispenser. Happens every time. We've been collecting ideas to start our own season of gift wrapping and wanted to share some of our inspiration with you. We have everything from rustic and sentimental to bold and graphic. Choose your style or mix and match. Most importantly, have fun wrapping gifts this year and make sure to incorporate your personality for a more meaningful gift.

This might only be me.. but sometimes the appearance of the beautifully wrapped presents under the tree is almost as exciting as opening the gifts. I love the first impression of Christmas morning as we come up the stairs and stare at the room. I hope I can create that same excitement for my loved ones this year. Here's a good start!

A simple, bright white can go along way. Starting with white gives you a blank canvas. Embellish with some wintery greens, warm linens, or whatever else you're feelin.

The many things you can do with kraft paper! Illustrate your own gift wrap with paint or metallic sharpies, or have fun splattering paint for a more graphic touch. Love this one!

Mmmmm. The polaroid pictures. This is seriously a perfect way to bring some sentiment into your gift giving. Attach an old memory or beautiful Christmas photography. We're loving the vintage black and white photography!

For a modern and playful collection under the tree, try some bold and graphic paper. The paper pom-pom is so fun here and can make any wrapped gift a winner. This website has a lot of fun gift-topper ideas as well!

Last but not least, we love the graphic patterns here paired with a simple but bold black ribbon. Simple and eye-catching. In love with the black bow tied perfectly for the topper.

We wish you luck as the season of giving starts to come to its close. We're going to try and make it last as long as we can! I truly love this time of year and the spirit it brings, especially when it's focused on giving and creating something special for others. Hope this roundup gives you a few fun ideas!
