If I had to describe my life in one word it would be busy. A good busy though. Life is full and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Now that Christmas is in full swing, I’ve got Christmas gift ideas on my mind. I know that I’m only going to get busier so I’m making a plan to get through this busy time while making this a Christmas my family will always remember. Part of my plan is to make a list of everyone I need to buy a gift for. I know I’m bound to forget someone or a couple of someones so I’m also adding a couple of extra gifts to the list that I can give out for those forgotten occasions. Then if I need a last minute gift idea I’ll already have it on hand!
I’ve put together these quick tips to help anyone wrap their gifts like a pro!
Tip #1: Pick a theme- I am in love with “Let It Snow” selection. It looks like a perfect snowy Christmas day and really makes me happy. Pick your favorite theme and go with it! I saw delightful Santa themes and so much more. Just make sure that you pick something that you love and you will be inspired to create your own wrapped masterpiece!
Tip #2: Go for more than one color- The snow theme has silver, white, grey and blue colors and they all compliment each other. With this many colors, you can use lots of shades of each color and it adds depth and excitement.
Tip #3: Think outside the gift wrap aisle- I love going into the ornament aisle and adding sweet ornaments to my gifts. A little extra addition to a wrapped gift takes it from “I bought this and wrapped it” to “I picked this out especially for you because I care”… even if you really did just stop in and pick something up.
Tip #4: Let your imagination run wild- Mix and match different items to create the perfect gift. I love giving a bottle of wine with some gourmet chocolates decorating the neck of the bottle with a delicate bow. This takes two very basic items and turns them into an exceptional gift! Sometimes less is more when wrapping a gift. A special bow with something like the chocolates makes a bigger impact than huge ribbons and wrapping paper.
Tip #5: Let others do the heavy lifting- I love giving special gifts, but I sometimes get stuck and can’t think of that special present to buy. But that’s okay, you can take inspiration from seeing others ideas in magazines and on Pinterest.
Making each gift you give look special is easy with a little planning! There are so many options that you can choose from, even basic things like lip gloss added to the ribbon on your gift will make it more personalized!
