By this point, you’ve gotten most of your Christmas gifts for all of your loved ones (or if you haven’t, you can visit our last-minute gift guide!) While finding the perfect gift is hard enough, wrapping is a whole different beast. Is it fold, tuck, pinch, and tape? Or does tuck come first? The humanity! In any event, we found some of the cutest gift-wrapping ideas that are so sweet, the recipients might be hesitant to tear in!:
Create a custom chalkboard-like gift wrap with black (non-shiny) paper and white pens or crayons. This style would be especially perfect for the teacher in your life.
Brown paper packages tied up with string…and your very own paper designs and gift tags. Don’t have the crafting gene? No problem–craft stores like Michaels sell pre-made cut-out shapes and gift tags for you to tie on, glue, or tape however you please.
Go to tie string around a package as you normally would (crossing in the back, flipping over to the front), but instead of tying a bow, bring the strings together as if you were going to tie a bow, but leave them sitting as is. Arrange some springs of evergreen through the string so that it forms a circle. Take all four strings and bring them back and behind the gift and tie a bow on the opposite side. This way, the string will hold on to the sprigs of evergreen like displayed in the image above. Voila! An adorable mini wreath.
Take an old sweater and cut the sleeves off for these cozy wine bags. If you’re not a sewer, you can use some fabric glue to hold the cut ends together (just be sure it’s super sturdy so the wine doesn’t slip out!)
This custom snowman is cute as a button. Bonus points if you can find some two-hole buttons, which make for perfect eyes and the snowman’s own buttons.
These sweaters are far from “ugly”. Tie them onto your gift with ribbon or use them as gift tags–you really can’t go wrong. The best part? They’re available for download, free of cost here!
