How to Wrap your Gifts this Christmas...

9 Dec 2018

Hello everyone,

Today I finally wrapped my Christmas gifts and I was so excited to finally do so, after days of searching for some gold tags to go with my wrapping paper. I absolutely love wrapping and always want to make my presents for my family look really special. I searched around Homesense, Tk Max, Wilko's and Poundland to find some pieces to go onto my gifts. I managed to find some amazing bits and for such an affordable price too. 

Now you are probably wondering where this gorgeous Nutcracker wrapping paper is from, and I actually found it in TK Max. It was the only one I could see and I just new I had to get it because the colours are just beautiful. This cost £3.99, which for wrapping paper is more on the pricey side but I just could not resist because it is so beautiful. I then got some gold ribbon and bows from Wilko's, which only cost £1 for 3 rolls and 6 ribbons. And to add a little special something to make the gifts look evening more sparkly and special, I found these little mini gold baubles also from Wilko's.  I then searched around for ages trying to find some gold tags and got these ones from WH Smith for just £1.50. There are so many amazing gift accessories out there, you just need to ave a little look around...

1. Find an eye catching wrapping paper...

As soon as I saw this wrapping paper I just new it would be perfect for my gifts. This one was pretty strong and proved a little more difficult to work with as it was so stiff, so a thin paper is always better if you struggle a little with wrapping, especially awkward shaped gifts.

2. Co ordinate with marching ribbon and bows

I always love to match the bows and ribbon to the coloured sparkle on the wrapping paper. I find gold always compliments pink so well so decided this would look best. If you struggle with the ribbon around the gift, just secure it into place with some tape and it will be less likely to move about. I also love to add a little more ribbon through and curl with the scissors. 

3. Add some little accessories

Adding a little accessory such as a small bauble to a gift makes it that more special. Wilkinson's do amazing bits like this and you could probably find some things at your local Christmas market. Even going to the Range and having a look at the tree decorations they have to offer, as they would look great on the gifts too. I also made some hand made pom poms. I think hand made accessorise always look so nice added onto a gift as it gives it that hand made feel. Please let me know if you would like to see a blog post all about how I made these cute little Christmas pompoms. I also think its great to co ordinate the name tags to your colour scheme also. 

4.  Add a little treat inside your Christmas card

Everyone loves a bit of chocolate around Christmas time, so what better way to surprise someone, than putting a little chocolate coin inside their Christmas card. I got these for just 50p in Wilkinsons and they just add a little something to your Christmas cards. 

I really hope you enjoyed this post, see you next time for some more festivities...
