30 Clever Christmas Present Wrapping Ideas
Christmas is almost here!
I’ve always loved to wrap presents and make them look pretty. I think I get that from my mom…she always makes gifts look special!
These holiday gift wrapping ideas were sent to me by readers, as well as spotted on Pinterest. It was so hard to pick my favorites…I want to share them all!
What Supplies Do I Need To Wrap Presents?
The awesome thing about these ideas is that they all use simple supplies:
- Cardboard boxes
- Wrapping paper
- Construction paper
- Paper towel rolls
- Cotton balls
- Ribbons and bows
- Markers, scissors, glue, and tape
No need to buy anything fancy!
Some readers used a photo of each child on their stack of presents, as a snowman face for example. Other readers added twinkling Christmas lights. But really you can create some fantastic decorated gifts with craft and wrapping supplies you already have on hand at home!
