It’s all in the presentation, right? Here are five high-impact ideas that’ll give your gifts a serious upgrade. It’s easy to get started – find some festive Christmas wrapping paper, dig out the scissors and tape and pick your favourite…
Hit the decs
A Christmas tree decoration makes a lovely little present once the gift’s been unwrapped – just look for a colour or style that complements your wrapping paper. Graphic shapes work best, and these moons and stars are perfect for glamorous gifting. Alternatively, try a cluster of mini baubles – the smaller, the better.
This Scandi-inspired idea is on-trend this Christmas, and really couldn’t be easier. Keep wrapping paper simple and tie on a small bunch of foliage - we love grey-green leaves set against a dark wrap. You could even twist and secure the foliage to make a mini-wreath. The glamorous update? Feathers, dipped in glitter.
Compare and contrast
These are some really clever ways to play with the paper itself. If you can’t choose between two beautiful papers, try adding a central panel of a second wrapping paper – we’d recommend keeping both fairly simple (that means only one print). For a nod to this idea, try triple layering your string or adding a bold striped ribbon.
There are tons of ways to do this perfectly personal idea. Add a polaroid of you and the giftee, a nostalgic snap from Christmases past or a picture of the kids for family to keep. You could try a postcard, too – a festive illustration or wintery landscape work so well with simple, rustic wrapping.
We don’t have to tell you that this one’s a winner. For the kids, bright and bold candy canes, lollies, or cellophane-wrapped Christmas biscuits are sure to be a hit, whilst the adults will appreciate slices of dried oranges and cinnamon sticks that can be popped in the mulled wine later.
