Wrapping gifts for the holidays is a great opportunity to get creative. There are many different ways to wrap or decorate your gifts that can help add a unique touch. You can make your own custom gift tags or designs for wrapping paper. Read below for holiday gift wrapping ideas that will help inspire you.
One way to add a festive touch to your wrapped gift is to top it off with a DIY gift tag. Get creative and make your own using good-quality, heavy paper, such as Hammermill®Premium Color Copy Cover 80 lb. printer paper. You can cut out fun shapes like a star or snowmen and add glitter for some extra pizazz. Don’t forget to write who it’s to and from on the back of your DIY gift tag.
Attaching a small decoration to the outside of your gift is a great way to help make it look extra special. Small ornaments you usually use for the tree can be attached to the top of your gift. If the recipient of the gift has a sweet tooth, then attach candy canes, a package of hot chocolate, or both. Make sure you have a well-wrapped gift before you decide to add extras to it.
