Even after shopping is done there’s still a bit more work to do. Get in the gift-wrap mood with some jolly music, then gather rolls of wrapping paper, bright bows and even greenery from the yard. Don’t forget the tape and scissors!
Or, turn the chore of wrapping into a festive event by hosting a Gift Wrapping Party. Ask each guest to bring an assortment of ribbon and paper to share. Everyone can mix-and-match for great looking gifts plus added holiday cheer – especially if you serve some La Crema Arroyo Seco Chardonnay.
For loads of inspiration, visit Corinna Wraps. We especially liked this sweet greenery topped box. Small pine cones, sprigs of rosemary or even delicate twigs would please a nature-lover. She also offers a helpful “Gift Wrapping Basics” guide – who knew there was a right and a wrong way to cut ribbon?
Jessica over at Two Shades of Pink gets crafty with simple brown paper and some yarn. You could also use this technique with white paper and bright silver thread for an elegant gift, or mix it up with the recipients favorite colors.
We also liked this sweet pom-pom tree.
