It’s all in the wrapping! I love giving gifts. It is actually one of my love languages. I am excited to share 10 great gift wrap ideas that can be used all year round! I love to set aside an evening during the holidays JUST for wrapping gifts, making tags and being creative. It could be argued that there is never enough time but I would disagree. Make the time to do the things you love. It is so worth it. Okay here we go!
Let’s start with gift tags. Using your craft stash, whip up some darling tags to turn a wrapped gift into a crafty masterpiece.
It is super fun to paint a can and hide a gift inside. Empty and clean paint cans are sold at the hardware store.
This one is a favorite. I used shirts that my boys wore in our family blending ceremony to make pocket snowman ornaments. They hang on the tree and are the place I tuck a gift card to a favorite store or restaurant. You can grab the pattern and directions here on the blog.
Sometime gifts are awkward and weirdly sized. This method of making bags with Oly*Fun works for all the gifts!
Giant gift tags can turn any gift into something super special. These reindeer tags are adorable and super easy to make!
Using a jar for a gift container is always a great idea. The jar then becomes part of the gift. I love that jars come in all shapes and sizes so work for many items.

Do it! Get creative when you wrap your gifts. Do it for the person you are gifting to AND do it for yourself. It is fun and it feels good.
Cheers and Love,
