Ahh Christmas. It’s the most wonderful time of the year (or so Andy Williams would have us believe). What’s not so wonderful though is the prospect of gift wrapping mountains of gifts – especially when the only presents you’ve wrapped during the year have been hastily wrapped in tinfoil.
If you’re a gift-wrapping novice but you still want your gifts to look fantastic, this blog post is for you. These creative (and easy) Christmas gift-wrapping tips are ideal for beginners. Happy wrapping!
1. Add an extra-special gift tag
No gift would be complete without a gift tag. But why settle for a plain and impersonal gift tag when you can go all out and make your gift tag a gift in itself?
These incredibly cute and tiny Kiko frames are perfect for adding to your wrapped gifts. What you choose to include in the frame is up to you, but they are perfect for displaying messages or amusing illustrations. This set of three frames is available in brass, zinc or copper.
Who says gift tags have to be boring? Certainly not us! These charming bell decorations come in a set of three and have a beautiful antique silver finish. When attached to the ribbon bow or tie of a gift, they’ll make a wonderful tinkling noise as the present is moved that’s guaranteed to make the recipient of your present smile. Attach a small gift tag, like the ones below, and add a name in a metallic silver marker for an eye-catching finish.
We love these super-simple yet super-stylish Scandinavian gift tag designs. Use in combination with the bell decorations above or alone for an understated look.
2. Include a special note
Part of the pleasure of receiving a Christmas present is in reading the note or card accompanying the gift. What will you write in yours? We love including poems, quotes and even photos taking during the year. It’s a great way to show how much you care (and also distract from your wrapping skills if you had to resort to tinfoil again!).
If you would like to send a loved one a special message with their gift this year, these vintage-themed glittered folded note cards from Cavallini & Co will make the perfect addition to any present.
3. Make your gift stand out
If you want your present to stand out, here are a few cute additions you can make to guarantee your gift will be the first to be picked from underneath the tree on Christmas morning.

Vintage Santa Wrapping Paper
A little goes a long way with this vintage Santa wrapping paper. The images can be cut out and used for decoupage or made into gift tags by adding a cardboard backing. There’s no limits to how creative you can get with this design.
