12 Creative Gift Wrapping Ideas

12 creative gift wrapping ideas

While I don’t necessarily spend a lot of money on Christmas presents, I do like to wrap them in creative ways whenever I can. I love seeing the look on people’s faces when I hand them over their pretty parcels and I like to think they appreciate the personal touch and extra effort that went into them. Also, there’s nothing that pleases my little Christmas loving heart more than to see a bunch of pretty presents underneath a tree so I guess this is like a gift to myself also ;) If you’re looking for fun and unique ways to present your gifts this year, here are twelve gorgeous gift wrapping ideas below.

And don’t worry if you’re not really crafty, most of them are really easy to do!
