Wrapping Tips for the Holidays:

Gift tags are just one part of wrapping your gifts. Make your presents pop with these holiday wrapping tips:

  1. Wrap on a Hard Surface

Although it’s tempting to wrap your presents on a bed, on carpet, or on the couch, clear off your kitchen table and get wrapping! Hard surfaces make it easier to fold and cut the wrapping paper in straight lines.

  1. Use a Box to Wrap Odd Shapes

If you have a gift that is an odd shape, find an old shoe box and use that to make your present easier to wrap.

  1. Measure Wrapping Paper First, Then Cut

One of the biggest mistakes you can make when wrapping presents is to have too little paper to wrap your gift. That’s why you should measure your wrapping paper before cutting. It makes it even easier to tape one end of the paper onto the gift first, then measure and finally cut.

  1. Remove Unnecessary Paper

On the other hand, if you’ve measured your gift wrap and just have too much, cut off the unnecessary paper. You can save it and make a bow, or just wrap another (smaller) present later. Having too much paper can make your presents look bulky.

  1. Use Double Sided Tape

Limit the amount of tape you use to wrap your gifts by using double-sided tape!

  1. Use Washi Tape to Decorate Your Gift Wrap

SHOP HERE:

If your wrapping paper is plain, decorate it with some washi tape. Don’t be afraid to use washi tape to wrap your gift and give it an extra special design.

  1. Print Your Own Gift Tags

If you don’t have any gift tags left, print your own using our designs:

  1. Shop for Gift Wrap on December 26th

Finally, make sure to shop the gift wrap sales the day after Christmas to get great deals on wrapping paper and ribbon.

What to Use if You Don’t Have Wrapping Paper

In a bind without wrapping paper? Don’t worry! Here are a few things you can use instead:

  1. Newspaper or Magazines

Wrap your presents in newspaper if you don't have gift wrap.

Use the comic section of the newspaper or a particularly festive magazine page to wrap your gifts.

  1. Fabric

Wrap your presents in fabric if you don't have wrapping paper.

Do you have an old sweater or piece of fabric laying around? Tie up your present inside of it for a unique wrapping job. Even better; if you’re giving a scarf for part of the gift, use it as the wrapping paper.

  1. Jars

Wrap your presents in fabric if you don't have wrapping paper.

Mason jars are having a moment; they’re in décor, kitchenware, and light fixtures. They might as well be used to wrap your presents! You can check out our DIY neighbor gifts that use mason jars here.

  1. Paper Towel Tubes

Wrap your presents using toilet paper tubes if you don't have wrapping paper.

Reuse the cardboard tubes that are in your paper towels and toilet paper rolls. Paint them, put the gift in the middle, and bend the ends in to keep the presents inside.

  1. Old Shopping Bags

Use old shopping bags to wrap your presents.

If you shop places that package your purchases in a branded paper shopping bag, reuse it! Cover the logo with paper or stamps and make the gift bag your own. It’s an easy way to repurpose the bags instead of throwing them away.

Don’t forget to use our printable gift tags to make your gifts look great, no matter what you wrap them in.
