Christmas Present Wrapping Ideas

As I know we have all been busy shopping, the next step is to wrap your presents!

Usually I just pick whatever paper I find in the store, but for several years now I have been wanting to wrap my presents up in a theme.

This year’s theme is “brown paper packages tied up with strings.” Which, of course, is from the song “My Favorite Things” in The Sound of Music.

I used various ribbons for the packages.  Some are also adorned with ornaments, bells, and candy.

I love the idea of attaching greenery to the presents, but I wrap mine in advance the greenery would long be dead before they would be given away!

Here are some great ideas to attach to the ribbons on your packages:


candy canes


cinnamon sticks


gift tag




Let’s look at some inspiration for wrapping paper themes…

Dear Lillie

Not all packages are for adults! How about these little snowmen for the kids, idea from Owe craft.

Or, if you are into printed paper, this is a pretty fun print!

If you want more prints, you could just choose printed paper and stick to a color theme.

Or you could stick to a theme, like all snowmen printed paper for instance.

I wrapped the presents for the kids in an Elf on the Shelf wrapping paper this year… thought they might find the brown “boring”!
