Blogmas Day 8: Pinterest Perfect Presents

Last year, my Christmas gift wrapping theme was copper, this year, I’ve gone slightly more traditional with reds. I love wrapping Christmas presents and making them look beautiful and I tend to spend a fortune on paper, toppers, tags, twine… the works. This year I’ve tried to do it relatively cheaply, so here are the deets (details).

Red/Patterned Paper – The Card Factory – £1.99 for 3 rolls

Brown Paper – The Card Factory – 99p a roll

Twine – The Works – £2 for 3 balls

Tags – Sainsbury’s – £3 per pack, 3 for 2 offer on

Bits and bobs – rosemary (few quid from a supermarket), tape (4 rolls for about £1 in Home Bargains), scissors (who doesn’t already own a pair?), fineliner pen.

My top gift wrapping tips would have to be:

  1. just put everything that’s awkwardly shaped in a box; it’ll make your life 10x easier
  2. pre-cut your tape and stick it halfway down on something e.g. a table, so you aren’t faffing around cutting tape and trying to keep your paper in place
  3. always cut too much paper/ribbon then trim the excess, better to trim it down since you can’t stick it back on

Here’s how my gifts are looking this year, not too shabby if I do say so myself.

  1. They look amazing! I wish I could wrap presents like that, I used ribbon for the first time this year – it’s such a confusing thing because you have to turn the present upside down first?!? I really need to up my wrapping game!

  2. These look amazing! Love the style you’ve chosen, which is completely different to mine. I’m going for black and gold this year 🙂 xx
