The gifts are slowly trickling in, and it’s already time to start wrapping them for under the tree! Maybe you already have your presents, or maybe you are the last-minute shopper type (like me). Either way, Christmas, parties and gift exchanges are all quickly approaching, and the gift-wrapping deserves to be just as amazing as the thoughtful present inside. While I’m sure you don’t have the time to browse endless wrapping options, a little inspiration to wrap your gifts outside the ordinary can’t hurt! And I promise, these are all easy, very affordable, and time-friendly.

Utilize Affordable Ornaments

Using inexpensive ornaments in your gift ribbon is a unique way to really make your presents pop. Additionally, snag a unique ornament, like the recipient’s initial! It turns into a part of the gift itself, and as the label tag. Win-win. Old Time Pottery had so many ornament options, from unique priced under $4, to classic vintage ball ornaments that were $5 for an entire package of them.

Bring Out the Textures

This style really brings out different textures into your gift-wrapping! I like to use twine and craft paper to wrap presents, and add pops of color with greenery or name tags. The possibilities are really endless with this look, so have some fun with it and make it your own. If you have fun Christmas stamps, use plain paper like this to create your own wrapping paper look!

Pops of Color

For the kids, classic colored paper just doesn’t go out of style. Plus, it’s just more fun to open. Elevate the look with something layered on top that calms it down a bit so ribbon can stand out! Classic wrapping paper for kids

Florals and Garland

Let’s have some fun with foliage and berry bunches! OTP has all the staples, and there are endless bushels of florals for $2 that can easily be split for multiple present looks. I love that this can be styled different ways, and with different paper to still look amazing. I grabbed some pretty pinecones to really bring out the rustic look!

Keep it Simple

For the small gifts and gift exchanges, keep it simple! Snag some craft paper, sharpies, easy ribbon, and go to town! simple wrapping paper with nice lettering via a sharpie

Unique Gift Boxes

At Old Time Pottery, different Christmas container options were so affordable, and I love to incorporate a few of these under my tree every year. They are so fun, and people enjoy using them again next year! I like knowing they’ll be used for years to come. a Christmas container with seasons greetings Tissue paper for holiday gifts These unique looks don’t break the bank, and take a matter of minutes to pull together.
