Wrapped And Ready!

If you’re like me, you are always looking for ways to make your gift stand out and radiate just how well you know your gift receiver. This year, I wanted to wrap my gifts a little differently than years previous — I’m tired of the same old Happy Birthday paper and cheapo ribbon! I’ve poked around the internet and come up with a few variations that will suit the wide range of personalities among my friends & family.

There’s something very appealing for me about this simplistic style of wrapping gifts. The design is very classy and would make a wonderful presentation for the more mature grown-ups in our lives!

I really like how this wrapping paper looks; it would make for a very rustic presentation! Great for earthy friends or the nature-lovers in your life. 🙂

Cloth Wrapping

The idea of using cloth instead of paper for wrapping gifts is a pretty great one; a lot less mess, and a lot more re-useable! I’m not entirely convinced I could make a present look appealing with cloth; it might take some practice to get the folds and knots just so. But the best part about this gift is that the wrapping goes with it! Great idea for scarves in particular.

There are a lot of variations of newspaper wrapping, but this one was particularly striking to me.  I really like the idea of dressing up the newspaper into little ribbons and bows, then adding a dash of color.

This is another idea that has about a million variations, only limited by your imagination.  These could make for a very colorful (and very fancy!) surprise.

A great dressed-up can idea! I don’t know exactly what kind of wrapping paper this is, but it looks amazing. There are a lot of other awesome ideas on the Inspiration For Home website, too!

    Thanks for sharing these amazing new idea’s that would be very impressive when the customer receives their order. I’ll definitely have to work on the fabric one though; a lovely scarf would look great!

    Those are some very creative ideas for gift wrapping. I might just have to get out of the box and create some original gift wrapping myself.
