Holiday Gift Wrapping Inspiration

In the past week, I have shared four holiday gift guides filled with thoughtful ideas to get the loved ones in your life.  Now that we’ve gotten all our holiday shopping done, let’s get to gift wrapping!

Today, I’m going to share with you ten creative gift wrap ideas from around the web. Tomorrow, I will reveal how I am wrapping my personal gifts. For now, here are some inspiring concepts for holiday wrapping:christmas_wrapping_ideasThis idea of handwriting on kraft paper by Annabelle Mintz is simple and elegant.  Stumped on what to write? How about writing the lyrics to your favorite Christmas carols? Or lines from The Night Before Christmas?christmas_wrapping_ideas_9Chalkboard everything is a huge trend right now, so why not take advantage of it with chalkboard-inspired wrapping paper? This is a simple DIY. All you need is matte black wrapping paper and a white GEL pen.christmas_wrapping_ideas_8Tap into your innner Jackson Pollock with this DIY splatter paint wrapping by Go Forth Creative.christmas_wrapping_ideas_6I love the simplicity of this pennant banner from Kitiya Palaskas and it could be easily recreated to fit any holiday or gift giving occasion. christmas_wrapping_ideas_4I love the chic quality this leather gift tag from Whimsey Box adds to a gift.  This gift tag is so gorgeous, I would even reuse it as a luggage tag!christmas_wrapping_ideas_5I’m not sure how this would manage underneath my tree, but this 3D tree and stamped falling snow wrapped gift by Ladies Home Journal would be the talk of any gift exchange, no matter what’s wrapped inside.christmas_wrapping_ideas_3It doesn’t get any more quaint than this hand-stamped ribbon from Paloma’s Nest.  Sure, this would take a decent amount of time to recreate for all your gifts, but it would certainly be memorable and if you have school-aged children, you might even be able to get them to help out with this one!christmas_wrapping_ideas_7I love the idea of adding a little fresh greenery to a gift.  I usually trim the bottom branches of my Christmas tree off to make room for more presents, so there would be plenty left over to dress up a few gifts.christmas_wrapping_ideas_2Purchase a gift from Anthropologie and you can add in this DIY wrap kit for only $2 or have them wrap it up and send the gift straight to the recipient for only $4.christmas_wrap_ideas_1For small gifts, I love all six of these ideas from the Stampin’ Up Holiday catalog.
