Gift-Wrapping Ideas

Done with the shopping? Now let’s move on to gift-wrapping! There are people who just take gift-wrapping for granted. Gift wraps would just be teared, crumpled, and trashed upon opening the gift anyway, so why bother? But there are also people who are meticulous with wrapping gifts. For who would not want beautifully wrapped presents under their Christmas tree, right? This would bring a more Christmasy feeling in the atmosphere!

In this regard, I invited a friend, Divine Grace “Irish” Ebale to help me with some gift-wrapping ideas.  She had experience in this field and she just has an eye for details.  The number one thing she shared to me was to be creative.  So, read on for her gift-wrapping ideas wherein we also made use of some recyclable materials in order to save good ol’ Mother Earth.

Irish’s Gift-Wrapping Idea #1  Cloth Gift Wrap

Scrap cloth, old scarves, and worn-out table cloth or picnic blankets can be used as gift wraps.  Just simply wrap your present with it and tie it into a knot then into a bow.  That’s just so easy and unique that your recipient would surely love!

Irish’s Gift-Wrapping Idea #4  Stamped Brown Paper Gift Wrap

Brown paper is made from recycled paper and it costs very low in the bookstore.  Had it stamped with the name of your recipient so you can have it personalized.  Take note, personalized gifts are much more appreciated for they symbolize your thoughtfulness!

Got a pine leaf fallen from your Christmas tree?  Don’t throw it!  Use it.  I know you’ve also got a lot of other broken things in your accessories box – broken fashion bracelets, earrings without pair, buttons, etc.  Use them to accentuate your presents!
