Personalize Your Holiday Gift Wrap
Would you rather receive a gift with a slapped on bow or a gift wrapped with a little effort and love? Good gifts are about the thought and fun wrapping is another way to show the person your thinking about them.

Gift wrap is easy to overlook. You go to all the time and trouble of choosing the perfect gift or maybe you rush into the store just before and grab something off the shelf, either way, gift wrap is easy to forget. It doesn’t have to be forgettable though. In fact, a creatively wrapped gift can be a gift in and of itself.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking outside the box!
Instead of ribbon think about wrapping a box with paper and fastening the paper with multiple rubber bands! The bands can be multi-colored or red and green for Christmas, blue and yellow for Hanukkah, whatever the occasion a rubber band is a creative and unique way to celebrate.
Stamped Kraft Paper
This is the best way to get some personalized paper for your gifts. Kraft Paper is a thick brown paper that is fairly inexpensive. It’s what grocery bags are made of. You can always use inside-out grocery bags, or if you need bigger swaths of it, Dollar Stores or hardware stores carry big reams of the paper. So get some Kraft paper and decorate a big piece of it. Use stamps, paints, glitter, stickers, markers or pens. Best to do a repeating pattern and to keep it spaced close together.
Do a big batch and you’ll be ready to wrap all season long!
Paper snowflakes are usually found floating down a window or hanging from the ceiling, but why not put that paper to good use on a gift. Wrap the gift in paper and cover it with your snowflake. Double sided tape will keep it on or you can tie a ribbon over it, but the snowflake will surely make your gift unique!
