Gift Wrapping Ideas

I'm done with most of my Christmas shopping so it's time to start wrapping!  I love wrapping presents!  I think my appreciation for a beautifully wrapped present comes from my mom and older sisters who have always wrapped presents so perfectly.  I love finding new cute and creative ways to wrap presents, whether it's using different embellishments or even unexpected things from around the house.

  4. I needed these ideas! I was just telling my friend that I'm naturally a crafty person, but for some reason I find it hard to put so much energy into something that's going to be ripped to shreds! Lovely photos- thanks for the holiday inspiration!

  15. These are adorable. I very often buy a bag, add some tissue paper and call it a day. I am so not creative with wrapping paper and bows and such. I do admit, we often make our own tags and that's always fun.
