Creative Ways To Wrap Your Christmas Gifts

I did a post a few years back on wrapping Christmas gifts but I thought it was about time I did another one.

But this time instead of showing you how to wrap your gifts in the traditional, albeit beautiful way, I thought I’d share some creatively different ways to wrap your gifts.  I hope you enjoy.


Use fabric to wrap your gift for an eco-friendly way to impress the receiver.  Image source: 


Use sections of the newspaper to personalise your gift.  Use the comic section for kids, maybe the financials for the economist in the family or the social and personal section for the celebrity addict. Image source: Frugal Living Now

Almost every teenager I know would be very happy with the one gift they don’t have to return…… cash!!


So how about this for a cool alternative to just stuffing money in an envelope! Simply insert an empty toilet roll holder into a jar, put the money inside and fill the outside with smarties or their favourite sweets.  Image source: Knick Knack Craft

I love this idea from Parenting Healthy Babies.
