Do you love a well wrapped Christmas gift? Here are more than 15 Christmas gift wrapping ideas to help you get creative.

Have you ever received a gift and you don’t want to open it because the wrapping feels like the gift itself? A beautifully wrapped Christmas gift shows someone you really care. Your gifts don’t need to look boring this year! Rather than using generic Christmas wrapping, add your own personal and creative DIY touches with paper, ribbon, tags and other decorations.  

Do you add a special touch to your gift wrapping?

I have put together these inexpensive Christmas Gift Wrapping ideas that will surely blow Santa off his sleigh this year!

PERSONALISED ORNAMENT WRAPPING  Add a letter sticker to the ornament and it becomes a personalised gift tag. After the recipient opens the gift they are sure to keep the sweet personalised mini ornament. 

BELLS, SNOWFLAKES & CANDY CANES – This creative gift wrapping idea can give an added festive flair to your gifts and make the unwrapping and unboxing experience a lot more fun. Cut out your own snowflakes, glue to your snowflake and attach a candy cane and ornament with some ribbon.  Simple but so effective! Original image credit unknown

FANNED CHRISTMAS TREE – Fan some green paper, add some ric-rac ribbon, a star on top and you’ve made yourself a super quick and easy christmas tree! Original image source unknown. 

WORD SEARCH WRAPPING PAPER – This is a fabulous + free, editable design that you can print at home! It’s a custom word search gift wrap and there are literally so many different ways you can use the design. The best part is that EVERY SINGLE LETTER of the free PDF is editable – so the sky is the limit on how you choose to customize your design. Found via Something Turquoise.

MIX TAPE WRAPPING – Dress up Kraft paper with festive masking tape, alternating horizontal and vertical strips to mimic ribbon. A snowflake fashioned from frayed candy cane coloured paper straws becomes the crowning glory. Found via CountryLiving

REINDEER GIFT TAGS – These are so easy to make and make such a difference to generic gift tags.  Found via Babyccino 

COLOUR ME WRAPPING PAPER – Wrap your gift in simple white paper. Stamp the words “colour me” on a corner of the box, and attach crayons instead of a bow. Make sure the gift inside isn’t too breakable or delicate, and let the child tear off the crayons and colour all over the box, decorating it in any way he or she wants. Image credit unknwon.
