20 Awesome Christmas Wrapping Ideas

Val Curtis

Do you have all of your packages beautifully wrapped under your tree already? I don’t and I needed a little inspiration. Needless to say, writing a post about Christmas wrapping 2 days before Christmas may not be my best use of time; however, I figured these sweet ideas might inspire you, too!! 

I am really moving toward the brown paper bag ideas since we can’t recycle traditional wrapping paper. Is that a weird thing right there? Which one is traditional? Paper bags or wrapping paper? Thoughts to ponder. That is about all of the time I can commit to that!

If you need to keep the kids busy while you are wrapping, bust out the Christmas Charades.

If you need a little liquid pick-me-up, peruse our Christmas Cocktails

If you just need some creative bow tying tips (these are REALLY cool!), check out how to tie a perfect bow.

Finally, if these ideas aren’t enough for you, we have 8 more creative gift wrapping ideas just in case.

Before you head over there check out these wonderfully inspiring Christmas wrapping ideas!
