I consider myself to be artsy in many different ways. The majority of Christmas gifts I give consist of some sort of DIY element - including the wrapping! This year I was inspired by an idea I saw on Pinterest (here). Picture brown paper wrapping, names written in gold sharpie, and a nice red bow to tie it all together! Genius!
I went for a red and gold theme for all of my wrapping this year. I'm not finished shopping or wrapping all of my gifts, but I'll give you a sneak peak of the finished presents I have so far this year! (right)
My favourite feature of this year's gift wrapping is the eco-friendliness! I re-used the brown paper that served as stuffing from a package shipped to me. Not only am I re-using (and it looks great), but this paper can be recycled after the gifts are opened! Bonus!
I know the wrapping isn't the most important part of the gift itself, but I think the effort and thought can make any present become even more special!
Also, if you're looking for a last minute gift-exchange item for any upcoming parties, I found some really cool treasures at Winners this year! I got a mug that's shaped like a pig, a pug poncho and a festive-scented Yankee Candle! Pair those things up with some Christmas chocolate and you've got a hit!
Are you almost done your Christmas shopping!?
