With less than a week until Christmas day, you're probably bustling to finish up last minute gift shopping, gathering all the ingredients for your big Christmas dinner, and so on. But with these delicious recipes, it may be worth your while to pick up a just a few extra ingredients while at the grocery store....
Have you ever received a Christmas gift so beautifully wrapped that you almost didn’t want to open it, just to preserve the wrapping and ribbons? Well, here are a few tips that can take your own gift wrapping to the next level and maybe inspire someone else to linger a little longer before ripping that paper to shreds in pursuit of what’s inside!
One of the easiest ways to customize your gift giving with a more personal feel is to incorporate the initial(s) of the person whom the gift is for. Nothing gives off the warm and fuzzy feelings more that knowing that not only was a gift selected just for you, but it was wrapped for you too!
While this may challenge your time and creativity a little more than adding lettering, silhouettes are overall fairly simple to accomplish (just find a picture and trace the outline!). They not only customize the gift to a specific person, but it can also become a fun game as people try to figure out whose silhouette is whose!
Rather than sticking with typical gift tags this season, think about customizing the gifts with actual photos that would be significant or meaningful to each person that is receiving a gift from you! Not only does this dress up the packaging, but your family or friend will get to hang on to the picture as a keepsake.
We know that gift wrapping and ribbons can add up quickly when you have a heap of presents to wrap. We love the simplicity of going to your local craft store and getting a giant roll of solid colored paper (try white or cream!) and a ball of twine. Combining these will give a simple, rustic feel to the gifts under the tree and will also save you a little extra money!
