Putting a little glamour in your holiday decor and gift wrap always makes everything feel more festive. A sparkle here, some gold there, or an unexpected color is so beautiful.

Need to gussy up a plain white box? Punch out some glitter and foil paper circles and stick ‘em on, just like confetti! Or add a piece of costume jewelry to finish out the ribbon instead of a traditional bow.

A piece of fabric is great for wrapping gifts, especially when the recipient can use it to wrap a gift the following year. And have you ever seen bright colored fishnet stockings used as wrap?! We haven’t…and are totally loving it. For the DIY-er that has some more time..make crayon shavings in different colors and put them in between two sheets of wax paper, then iron them to create an artistic masterpiece!

  3. Lovely!!!!
    This year my wrapping is mailing paper, red or green tissue paper (a strip in the centre), twine, a mail tag and a bell!

  4. I love this post!!! I have learned new things from this article and I am excited to incorporate them in my own decorating and gift wrapping. I am fond of using fresh flowers for decorating cakes and I love using paper meant for scrap booking for wrapping gifts. My take on cake decorating is tasteful elegance and I tend to go on overdrive with my gift wrapping. Yep, my gifts come in loud and colorful packages- to offset the uneven cuttings and misshaped ribbons used to complete the package.

  5. This year I’m not buying any new wrapping stuff. I’m taking all the paper grocery and shopping bags I’ve saved cutting them, turning them inside out and then stamping them with a snowflake stamp. I got ribbon crazy last year and so I have so much left over. I hope this looks sweet and crafty.

  6. I love all the gold! Wrapping presents is one of my favorite things about the holidays. Last year, I made a silhouette of the gift recipient and used that as the tag. It’s my favorite wrapping I’ve ever done.

  7. What a gorgeous roundup. I write a blog about gift wrapping and spend my days scouting ideas – and many of these are new to me! Thanks for sharing the inspiration…my fave is the giant gold bauble against black paper in the 3rd image.

  8. I love This Suit
