I had the perfect morning yesterday, wrapping presents to the sound of Christmas songs under the tree with all of the fairy lights lit (this seems such a luxurious thing to do when there is only me in the house). I’ve really tried to buy less this year and wrap a little more sparingly but I still enjoy gift giving and making sure those gifts look beautiful when presented to their recipients. I’ve used brown paper, twine, stamps & jute bows to create a natural & most importantly sustainable look. The preserved flowers were left over from my Christmas table decorations and make the perfect plastic free embellishment. For smaller gifts, I’ve used a more colourful recycled gift wrap in these lovely scandi prints, my personal favourite is the woodland animals.
To create a fun look for kids gifts I used brown paper or kraft boxes & added eyes, glittery antlers & a giant red pom pom to create a cute Rudolph (my little boy loved getting involved with this too).
Here are how my Christmas gift wrapping is looking so far:
The coloured gift wrap & tags are from Curlicue a new online store with some beautiful recycled gift wrap designs at affordable prices.
The brown paper, tags, twine, Rudolph bits & stamp kit were from Hobbycraft and if you’d like some more inspo they are hosting an instore gift wrapping drop in workshop on December 21st, click here for more details.
The jute bows were from Flying Tiger.
