DIY holiday gift wrap & favorites

Get a jump on that holiday gift wrapping!

There is nothing like the daunting task of wrapping all your gifts at one time. 

I combat this by wrapping the gifts as they arrive {if bought online} or after each shopping trip.

It makes things so much easier and I find I put more time into the presentation of each gift this way as well..

I want to show you some of my favorite gift wrap I have bought this year, and show you a couple ways that you can make your own gift wrap! 




STORE BOUGHT GIFT WRAP

This gift wrap is one of my favorites this year. It comes in a 3 pack and they coordinate beautifully together. 

I also picked up this ribbon, because I love the richness of velvet.

Minted is also a great source for gift wrap. They always have a good selection for different styles, and I love the option where you can add your own photo and text. So clever! 
And don't just look at their holiday wrapping paper. Some of my favorite holiday wrapping papers are not from the holiday section at all!

Here are the ones I purchased this year to use:




Minted also has a great selection of ribbons right here. 
This one is my all time favorite. 

HANDMADE GIFT WRAP

If you want to create truly custom gift wrap, and do a fun craft project, these options are just for you!

Get your favorite photos printed on engineering size paper at your local Staples. Order online and pick up the same day. This is a great option for wrapping Grandparent gifts with photos of their grandkids, print a picture of your pet, or your home even. I chose black and white but you can also do color prints too for a bit more money.






You can also make your own gift wrap by stamping rolls of craft paper! This is a fun project to do with your kids, or by yourself. Crank up those holiday tunes, or put a classic holiday movie on and stamp away. Perfect project for a rainy day. I chose black craft paper as well as natural, white and black ink pads and this stamp for the star paper. 




The combination of the store bought and the handmade paper looks so good together!
