As it’s drawing closer to Christmas I thought I’d share with you a collection of my favourite present-wrapping themes.
This year, I went with a rose gold and white theme but my usual go-to is plain brown paper, jazzed up with red and white raffia. What’s your favourite theme?
I found all these themes on Pinterest so be sure to go check out some more on our Christmas Board for other ideas.
It’s also worth bearing in mind the style of your tree because when you leave your presents underneath, it’s a good idea to have the colours/theme co-ordinating.
I’ve called this the ‘Woodland’ theme because I think it’s quite nature-y and reminds me of the forest with the combination of the brown paper, string, branches, leaves, and pinecones. I also like the addition of the little bells as it brings a little more colour in.
I absolutely love the idea of the little brown bags and think this would be suitable for smaller gifts you give to work colleagues or for a Secret Santa gift.
The plainer brown paper also lends itself well to being written on which I think looks lovely. I’m really into script and calligraphy at the moment and also think it’s a really nice personal touch.
I’ve seen quite a lot of sparkly wrapping papers in the shops this year which makes me think it’s going to be a trend for 2017 Christmas wrapping. I love the combination of both lighter and darker colours with the gold glitter. I think this one from WH Smith is my favourite (you can also see it below).
I also like the combination of plainer paper and glittery or shiny ribbon, bows, baubles, and labels. I think it’s very classy and works well with a mixture of textures.
This isn’t something I see very much of but is a style that I think can be really effective. I love the combination of busier paper and plainer decoration.
You really could use anything from sheet music, book pages, blueprints, sewing patterns, and even pieces of fabric.
So there we are! I hope this has given you some inspiration on how to wrap your Christmas gifts this year. Like I said before, head over to our Pinterest Christmas Board for more.
We’ll see you again next week, thanks for reading!
