Simple Pleasures – Wrapping Gifts

December 20, 2013 by Boo

Hey folks,

Hope you’re all well and happy today. Any snow for anyone yet? I thought I saw a flake yesterday but when no more followed I figured it was just wishful thinking lol. I know some of you live in places where it hardly ever snows, if at all. How do you celebrate your festive season without the white stuff when all around us are images of roaring log fires, wooly jumpers and thick socks and warming hot chocolate? I always think it must feel a little strange though I suppose you get used to it in time?

Today I thought I’d share some awesome home made gift wrap ideas I found on my web travels. I am going to be trying a few of these out myself. Normally, gift wrapping is one of the simple pleasures I get at this time of year and I admit, I like all my gift wrap to coordinate with my decoration color theme ( I know, so sad haha) but since times are a bit tough we must make do with what we have right? How about some of these nifty ideas? Let me know how you like to gift wrap your Christmas goodies.

I adore this idea and have given Jay strict instructions that he is to snap everyone this year ready for adding pics to parcels next year.


Imagine the look of loved ones faces when they see their own photos on their gifts. I think its really neat.


How about these ideas for saving a few bob and yet making a statement?





Add a homemade tag to really make it feel special



I hope these few ideas have given you some food for thought, created a little spark of inspiration? I’d love to know if you decide to use any of them for your own gift wrapping this year. Let me know.
