Christmas is on our doorstep which for many families is a time to relax and enjoy quality time with family, reflect on lessons from 2020 and, of course, share Christmas gifts. This year, there’s a trend for gifts to be more meaningful and sentimental so it’s important to make sure that your wrapping matches the mood. Where do you begin though?
Here are five easy tips that will transform the wrapping of your gifts into something beautiful and exciting.
Choose a colour scheme
The traditional colours of Christmas are red, green and white but you can choose any colour scheme that you want to - just try to stick to it. Whether you choose golds and silvers or sustainable brown paper, keep the wrapping uniform and you’ll see how effective it can be.
Get creative with packaging
Some gifts are a pleasure to wrap because they are neatly packaged in a rectangular box. Other gifts are more tricky to put together and it helps to think out of the box (literally). For example, gift boxes and baskets are equally as exciting to open and a lot easier to wrap!
Add a splash of festivity
This is the fun part of wrapping your Christmas gifts. Add a ribbon, bow, twine or even a decorative scent such as rosemary to your gifts for extra cheer. Try to stick to your colour scheme or choose to make your decorative layers pop with colour.
Personalise your labels
The final touch is a personalised gift tag that tells the person exactly who put the effort into wrapping their gift. You can get really creative with these gift tags and make it an entire craft activity.
Keep them a surprise
After you’ve put so much effort into wrapping your gifts, it’s time to hide them until the actual morning. Make sure that the surprise stays exciting by carefully picking your hiding spot. One of the best places to keep your beautifully-wrapped Christmas gifts is a storage unit. You can be certain that your gifts are safe and secure and that no one will find them.
