Wrap with Ribbons

Bundled Up in Brown
Brown postal wrapping paper is simple but versatile.
Bundle your presents in these earthy wrappers and finish them off with mini-wreaths, pine cones and holly berries that take you back to the roots of giving.
Decorate with Doilies
Lace up your gifts with doilies for a delicate snowflake touch!
Incredibly easy to find at the grocery store, and you’ll add a sweetness to your presents without breaking the bank. You can mix it up with colored wrapping paper for a nostalgic feel or go natural with brown.
Brighten Up with Washi Tape
Washi tape is a life saver for when all you’ve got left at home is plain paper.
Go crazy with color by alternating stripes, or fancy yourself a crafty minimalist by dotting cut outs onto the paper. Unleash the artist in you because the possibilities are endless.
Go modern with a geometric gift design, such as this magnificent marble look from Handmade Charlotte.
Arrange angular shapes in striking patterns like this, and you’ll have the most handsomely wrapped gifts under the tree.
Make It Monochrome
Monochrome; black and white, or varying tones of just one color. Dressing your gifts in these delicate shades of one color gives them an instantly sophisticated look.
From dark hues to pastel shades, you’ll be making an effortlessly chic statement with your presents. Here’s to a classy Christmas.
