There is nothing i love more about Christmas than wrapping presents! It definitely helps to add your own little personal touch and you can be as creative as you want to be regardless to how well you can wrap presents! Here are some of my ideas for wrapping presents:

Brown paper is definitely one of my staples for Christmas wrapping this year! I picked up a massive roll for a pound in you guessed it poundland haha and you may think brown is boring is boring but you can jazz it up any way you like! I've added different Christmas ribbons to mine that i have picked up from various places, the candy striped string was from ebay and i think it looks great! Other ideas are stamping your own designs onto the paper with ink or paint,adding stickers and by attaching little gifts to the string such as a candy cane or a tree chocolate, other ideas i have seen on pinterest that i love are sprigs of holly, sadly i don't know of any holly tree at university but my mum knitted the holly and berrys for me which you can see on the picture above, how amazing is that?!

Gift tags - I have never seen the point in buying gift tags when you can make them yourself with relatively no cost involved! I usually cut up last years Christmas cards or the card from Christmas crackers and recycle it as gift tags, they all end up looking different and better than anything you can buy!

Another little thing i love adding to presents is Christmas sequins! I put in some Christmas sequins to their cards and inside presents so they get a little extra surprise when they open their presents!

Some of my favourite places to buy wrapping paper and the little extras from are; Paper chase,eBay, pound land,Ikea,the works and hobby craft!

Here are some of my favourite wrapping inspiration ideas from Pinterest,enjoy!

  7. I saw the brown paper in Poundland the other day but I wasn't sure on whether it would wrap well without tearing easily and it looks like it does. Amazing, I'll buy it next time :)

  10. I love wrapping presents! For some people it's a real drag but for me wrapping the presents and making them look beautiful is one of the highlights of Christmas! I love all your wrapping ideas and I think I'm going to try out the brown paper idea and decorate my own wrapping- so much more creative! I went to try and pick up some brown paper in my local Poundland but unfortunately they didn't have any in there, so I'm not sure where else to try! I love how cute the knitted holly looks and the candy cane string looks adorable on your presents! Alice xx aliceinthelookingglass.wordpress.com
