Not only do I have almost all of my Christmas gifts bought, but, I have them wrapped too!
Every year I try to make my presents look different. Sometimes, I will use a theme, such as snowmen. Sometimes, I will use a color theme. Sometimes I put on big fancy bows.
This year I went with a red and apple green theme. I also, thought I would try to do different ways to make the bows pretty. Like this one. It's in the shape of a rose.
Some are just simple bows with an ornament tied to it. That way, the wrapping serves as double duty. It's cute and another little gift.
I love this one. It could even serve as the tag if you only have one person with the initial you use. It also makes a fun sound when the person shakes the gift and helps to disguise what is inside.
While this one is wrapped with the ribbon and an ornament, the way it is placed together makes it look like a fancy ribbon.
Of course some of my presents will have just the normal big bows.
Using little stuffed toys is always cute too.
I like using just two or three colors for my wrapping and then making them all look different by switching up the ribbons and adding the little extras to show the person you care enough to put in the extra effort for them.
Of course, these few presents are just a drop in the bucket from what I have wrapped and ready to go, but I didn't want to give away the surprise on all of them. I know some people in my family read my blog and I want them to have a little surprise when they see their packages.
What about you? What do you do to make your packages special? Do you wrap with a theme or color?
