Wrapping Pinspirations

So, November is here. Do you know what that means? Time to get ready for Christmas! That is, if you haven't started already. As I starting thinking about/decorating for/celebrating Christmas, I thought we'd put together a little series for our our festive ideas! This won't be everyday, and it will be mixed in with some regular posts, but when you see this logo you'll know Christmas fun is coming! And if you have any ideas or suggestions, let me know. We have almost two months of Christmas preparation ahead of us!

Now without further ado, let's get started! I pretty much finished my Christmas shopping this weekend so I'm ready to get wrapping. I figure since Christmas only comes once a year I might as well make the most of it and get a little fancy with my wrapping. So I'm starting with a little Pinterest hunting. I love brown paper (and already bought a couple rolls at Dollar Tree) and I also like the idea of wrapping in print (like book pages or newspaper. So here are a few favorite ideas to inspire my wrapping.

Of course I'll let you know more specific details once I get started with the wrapping. So what's your wrapping philosophy? Do you prefer to keep it simple? Do you like bright colored paper? Or big bows? Or are you more of a gift-bagger?


  1. Looks like it's going to be a designer Christmas :-)

  2. Love the brown kraft paper. I used to go out front and get a fresh sprig of holly for my packages. Alas, we moved.

    In the interest of full disclosure, I'm not above a gift bag.

  3. This year I'll be using red and tan gingham kraft paper from the dollar store and twine bows.

    Great ideas, thanks for sharing!

  4. Whoa there, Nathan, let's not make any big promises. :)

    Rhetta, the holly sounds like it was wonderful! And I'm not above gift bags either. I keep a stash of them in the basement at all times. :)

    Dana, that sounds great! And you can't beat the price of the dollar store. :)
