Personalize Your Holiday Gift Wrap

Dec 12, 2012

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!

Rubber Bands

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!

Snowflake

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!

What is your perfectly wrapped gift?

  • Just some paper and maybe a bow, nothing fancy.
  • Gold leaf paper with satin ribbon- only the finest!
  • Something fun and unique. Not the usual paper and ribbon, but wrapping that's a gift on it's own.
  • I don't like wrapping paper. It keeps me that much further from my present!

"Oh. Um, OK..." I closed my eyes, and jumped. I hoped that I'd land on something. ​(("Um, I did. It's today." Paps chuckled. "You have no idea how many people I had to enlist..."))

Error didn't answer, he just glanced up giving him a sort of look like 'are you really that clueless?' then went back to his game. Paperjam was visible on a floating rock down below, and he started jumping from rock to rock,. "come on!"  (PunMaster nodded. "If it's tiring, haven't you ever asked to get a break, have someone else do it for you for at least a day?")

"Kid! What the heck are you doing? And what am I supposed to do?" I said this last part to PJ's dad, who barely took notice of me, glued to his phone's screen. ​(("I've been delivering messages in-between cities of the Underground for my brother. It gets really tiring sometimes, but Iron says I've been helping a lot, so I do my best!" He sighed.))

Paperjam grinned. "Come on!" Paperjam grabbed Iron's hand, then ran along the path, until they came to an edge a little way away from where error had been... Only Error was there, sitting on the ground this time, still on his phone. Paperjam let go of Iron's hand, and looked out over the edge, waiting... then he suddenly jumped off the edge, plummeting. Error seemed to have little to no concern about what was occuring.  ("Hmm.. recently? I've been drawing, writing stories, roleplaying.. it's fun." PunMaster shrugged. "You?" )
