Christmas is coming up, way too fast if you ask us, but if you celebrate this holiday then you fully understand that gift-wrapping is a whole art form. Gone are the days of paying a charity a few bucks to wrap gifts for you at the mall; now it’s all about how creative you can get with the way you wrap. If you feel like the ideas just aren’t coming to you, we’ve got some inspiration for you! Let’s get started.
Even if you don’t fancy yourself an artist, we have no doubt you can create a killer winter scene. To get this gift look, you’ll be on the hunt for a wrapping paper that creates a pretty base, then collect all of your favorite miniature winter scene accessories to create small, perfect moments in 3-D right on your box. Finish these gifts off with wide velvet bows, and you’re all set! Good luck topping this gift-wrapping idea, we think it’s pretty precious! (image via: lovely indeed)
This is a great option for those of us that aren’t super great at wrapping gifts but want to go the extra mile; we’re totally capable of making a tower and gluing some accessories on it! Plus if you have a pretty good-sized family, it would be super fun to tailor each snowman to its respective family member. (image via: smart school house)
This gift wrapping idea is so easy we can’t believe we didn’t come up with it first. Okay, we actually can. But let’s get real, how perfect is this gift-wrapping idea for those friends or family members that are always on the go? (image via: ramshacked glam)
If you have a music lover in your friend group or family, then you should consider starting to scour thrift stores for sheet music (you can usually snag it for mere pennies!) to wrap their gifts in! To make it a bit more Christmas-y, we love the idea of using red or green velvet ribbon to make bows, and if you really want to give friends and family the old razzle-dazzle, then skip the bows and attach some shiny antique pieces to the middle of your gifts.

Newspaper is a super cool option for gift wrapping this holiday season! (And really for any time!) Not only do we love it because it’s a great way to recycle newspapers, but it’s super easy to dress up! If you want your newspaper to look a little aged, you can soak it in coffee; we also love the simplicity of wrapping thin ribbon around gifts, even accented with some greenery, be it real or artificial.
