Gift Wrap Inspiration

I have a problem when it comes to gift wrap. I’m completely obsessed.

I mean, seriously. If you run yourself ragged for the whole holiday season searching high and low for the perfect gifts for all of the people on your gift list, why phone it in and do a shitty wrapping job? And if you didn’t drive yourself mad in your hunt for gifts, well, that’s an even bigger reason why you should go the extra yard with your gift wrap.

Usually I’m a wrapping paper junkie. I love pretty prints and whimsical colors. But I’ve grown kind of annoyed by how little of it you get for your buck (did that last roll even wrap around the tube twice? Jeeez).

This year I’ve decided to turn to brown craft paper and other wrapping alternatives. You can be more creative and spend less–which sounds like a double win to me!

Check out some of the pretty inspiration I’ve collected:

What do you think? Are you planning on getting creative with your gift wrap or are you saying “Screw it, who has the time?”?

Usually I would be one of the latter (although I’d swear up and down until the very last second that I was going to be creative), but my bud and I have an eagerly anticipated gift wrapping party every year–and by party I mean she comes to my house and we stuff our faces with deliciously unhealthy foods while listening to Christmas music and wrapping our little hearts out. It’s amazing.

Do you have any wrapping traditions?

  1. YAY!! I can’t get enough of gift wrap inspiration!

  2. so many great ideas. I surprisingly like the simplicity of the newspaper one the best. Eco-friendly too.

    found you at the IHOD link up. 🙂

  3. Hi! I’m over from IHOD! I LOVE the colored yarn – so cute! Happy Holidays!

  4. Loving the second pic with the rainbow yarn so awesome! And yes, I too am a gift wrap snob, not afraid to admit it. You take so much time to pick out a gift why wrap in a half assed way. Even if you don’t have much time at least pick out pretty paper. Feels good to get that out! Ha Ha. Found you through the link party.

  5. How cute is that first picture?! I have to remember that one for next year…I love “easy with a big impact” wrapping!
