wrapping your gifts:

December 15, 2010

One of my absolute favorite things to do is package + wrap gifts. A pretty package is just as exciting as the product itself, in my own opinion. What do you think? Does a pretty wrapped package make you super happy or could you care less? :) Anyway, I collected a little round up of ideas for wrapping your holiday gifts!

Check the Giver's Log - a pretty packaging inspiration board!

Wonderful packaging ideas + inspiration from nice package

A nice little metallics kit from knot and bow

Always pretty packaging finds at The Gilded Bee

Nice packaging article from Birch and Bird

Love this idea of using a vintage brooch from Tea for Joy

Ruby's lovely "wrap it up" series at my cakies!

I love that Anthropologie has a little section on wrapping ideas & they link you to where you can purchase the wrap on their site!

  9. The packaging of a gift is almost as important as the gift itself! I believe cute packing is a must! The fun thing is that one can usually make a gift unique just by adding a few inexpensive details that can be easily found around the house (like the book page slips on the image in the post). :)

  10. I don't think there is anything sweeter than just a gift wrapped in plain brown paper with a colorful bow. Thanks for posting these...such lovely inspiration!

  11. I agree, the wrapping makes it that much more special. I used to go all out, not so much anymore though.

  23. Making your own wrapping paper, and special wrapped gifts are nice to give and to receive. I like to use fabric with lovely prints on them when i ship items

  25. I love planning how I'm going to wrap presents, and I try to go with a different theme every year. That becomes a bit difficult after a while but it can be so much fun making everything looked as thought out as the presents themselves.

    Love the last two designs especially!
