6 Unique Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas to Spice Up Your Presents

Talking about Christmas gift wrapping ideas certainly bring to us an air of nostalgia as the cold winter air starts to sweep across our faces. It is that most special time for the year where we once again celebrate and begin the frenzy gift shopping and wrapping. In order to come up with unique holiday gift wrapping ideas, we have helped you brainstorm 6 splendid ways to make your presents dazzle and pop among the mundane standard outcome of typical gift wrap.

Idea 1: Use Gold and Red Color Theme

One of the holiday gift wrapping ideas will be adopting a red and gold color theme for your gifts, as this theme can unite décor and gifts well. This is especially useful if you are playing host to a Christmas party or dinner. One tip can be placing small gifts on the table setting for each of the guests. Wrap the gifts in authentic white wrapping, and top them with rich red velvet ribbons, lacquered gold lemon leaves. Before the guests are seated, you could have tucked in a hellebore (comes from winter-flowering Eurasian plant that contains large white, green, or purplish flowers) at the last moment.

Idea 2: Adopt Red and White Striped Gift Wrap

Naturally, when talking about Christmas celebrations, one is reminded of elements like snow man, snow flake, candies and white snow. Try incorporating some of these elements in the form of decorative ornaments as part of the wrap. Mix different widths of red and white striped ribbons with candy-striped papers. Then, add real candy canes and a fluffy white string to inject an element of fun.

Idea 3: Utilize Decorative Items with Lavish Red Bows

Gather or collect red textured papers or rich fabrics. Add them together with fruits, nuts, pinecones and DIY stamps. Experiment and explore what you can think of as unconventional, yet refreshing ideas in creative gift wrap. For example, for the festive mood, adopt a sprig of berries or a tulip-print postcard adornment and spice this up with a bright red lavish bow to instil that festive note. Alternatively, getting a trio of pinecones on gingham paper and stamping it with tiny fir trees serves to create a charming look. The desired result is made complete with a wide contrasting-color ribbon.

Idea 4: Go for Natural Greens and Wood Tones

For a change, instead of bright colors, one can adopt a more natural palette of soft greens and wood tones. This arrangement is appropriate if you want to create a calm and inviting atmosphere. So use an Italian marbleized paper wrap with brown satin ribbon and decorate with mixed nuts and greens. The other variation can be wrapping in marbleized paper with taffeta ribbons and dressing with preserved pinecones and oak leaves.

Idea 5: Customize Gingham Gift Bags

To carry these creative gift wrap ideas further, put presents in gift bags. Make red gingham by pinking and sewing it to become a gift bag. After inserting the gift inside, tie it with plaid ribbons. Next, attach a tag using a piece of tissue with white cardboard acting as a back support.

Idea 6: Combine Mixture of Golds and Silvers

The last of Christmas gift wrapping ideas could be suggested on mixing silver and gold colors. Do a metallic gold or silver wrap, add translucent flake-decorated silver ribbons. To bring down the tones of the garnish metallic, add spray-paint natural elements like leaves, nuts or dried flowers similarly in either gold or silver to complement the paper colors. Thus, combining a mix of different surfaces and textures in a restricted color palette can result in rich and sophisticated gifts.

As you may have observed, great ideas are not hard to come by if you take the trouble and effort to look around you, be resourceful and diligent enough to do a little bit research in materials gathering. Definitely, if you do that, those holiday gift wrapping ideas will come to your mind. You may get better ideas if you can discuss with your friends and loved ones to survey what kind of presents and format they are expecting. Who knows that during this process of finding, you may discover more ideas and surprises for even more unusual yet appealing ways of presenting these unique wrapping ideas?
