Ok. If you are like me, you were not blessed with the gift wrapping gene. The gene that allows you to be super creative & talented in the gift wrapping department. I envy people who show up to the party with the pretty wrapped packages while I’m holding a gift wrapped in paper that looks like it went through a paper shredder. Alas, I turned to some amazing inspiration to help me learn how to bring my presents from drab to fab & I couldn’t just keep the knowledge I found to myself, so I decided to put this little post together for all of you who need some inspiration to help wrap your gifts all lovely for any occasion. No, but really… let’s try this. I vow to try to make some gifts pretty this year & not just buy gift bags & ask my husband to wrap them. He was born with the gift wrapping gene thankfully, but for me it’s going to take some practice. I hope you enjoy these easy & creative gift wrapping ideas!

Oh man. I’m so inspired by all of these gifts & I hope you are too. Perfect timing for this post since none of our Christmas gifts are wrapped yet. I’m off to wrap some gifts now! Let me know what your favorite gift wrapping inspiration is in the comments below & be sure to find me on Facebook & Instagram! xx

I’m wrapping ALL DAY today, hopefully mine will be somewhat pretty! I always use brown or white craft paper, and plan to add some aztec painted designs to them this year! Have fun, Liz!! ~Kim
Really love your blog but the number of ads are crazy. The are distracting–too many.

I LOVE so many of these thanks for sharing!!!!
Hi! Thank you so much for the sweet comment & I am so sorry for our mess at the moment. We are in the middle of re-doing the blog & it’s taking/going to take longer than anticipated. We are trying to get everything figured out & lots of changes are being made. Hoping to get things figured out soon! xx
My favourite is the Postcard and Monogram wrap – took my breath away! I call them new old-fashioned style of wrap … there is none which I don’t like!

I loved the doily idea and tried it myself! Since my box was a little smallish to do things exactly the same way, I modified it a little bit. You can see it here on my blog: https://letswrapoutsidethebox.com/?p=168
Thanks for the inspiration!

This post totally inspired me to use brown paper, doilies, and pine on my gifts! I even think I saw some embossed paper, too…
Going to wrap right now–thank you!!!

Liz, your gifts are beautiful. And I know that when wrapping gifts it all begins with getting the paper right.
I spent thirty years on the living room floor cutting giftwrap with scissors and became frustrated enough to develop a better way. It’s the WrapMaster. Check it out at http://www.giftwraptools.com. If you think it has value ,I’ll send you one. My gift to you!
