How To Find Your Gift Wrap Style

So many fun packages tied up with string…

I love wrapping gifts and I every year make a whole “thing” of it. I mark a night in the calendar, pull out ALL of my supplies (how cool is this?!), turn on my favorite Christmas movie, make hot cocoa (I always use this recipe), put my cozy pjs on… and get to work!

This all turns what often feels like a holiday task into a holiday treat and I truly look forward to it all year. It’s like one giant craft night!

Besides making a whole night of it, I also really enjoy choose a wrapping paper theme/color-way for the year ahead of time… this truly brings me so much joy! Finding the prettiest ribbon (this velvet is so good), bows, tags, boxes, and paper is half the fun.

So below I’m sharing a handful of wrapping styles! I like to mix and match patterns, but all keeping in the same theme. Think about what “feel” you want when glancing under the tree at the pile of packages, and what sort of wrapping look brings you the most joy. ‘Tis the season after all!

P.S. And if you’re on the hunt for items to wrap, here’s my Black Friday shopping guide and all of the holiday gift guides so far!


A Few Favorites From The Nostalgic Finds:

If you want to make it really easy on yourself, use gift bags! Totally allowed.

This nativity angel pattern is so sweet and beautiful.

I just adore this vintage Santa pattern and his rosy cheeks!

We’re headed to NYC next week (!!!) and this paper is giving me all the Christmas in the city feels!


A Few Favorites From The Pastel Finds:

How gorgeous are these pastel trees! Love it with gold ribbon and these gift tags.

This sweet and festive 4-pack of gift wrap is already perfectly themed together.

This sage bow print feels very me! Sophisticated and sweet.

It would be such a sweet touch to thread one of these tiny ornaments onto the ribbon around a gift, yes?!


A Few Favorites From The Colorful Finds:

Pink poinsettia pattern! Yes, please!

Love the simple script and message on this one.

This pink with the trees is such a fun combo! Would be so cute with this ribbon.

Boxes like this one, this one, and these make the job super easy!


A Few Favorites From The Minimal Finds:

Skiers! How clever and cute!

Sometimes a simple stripe is all you need, and with this matching ribbon.

Love this sweet candy cane pattern with this ribbon.

This Merry Christmas script says it all.

This would be so fun to tie onto the ribbon (or use a letter for the recipient… so sweet!).


A Few Favorites From The Sophisticated Finds:

This marigold wrapping is just too beautiful! Like a work of art. This mistletoe is also really pretty.

I’m kind of into this red floral… it’s different, but I really like it.

This butterfly pattern and the fruit pattern are also unexpected but so good!

Or how about brown pinstripe? Simple and sophisticated.

And top them all off with a jingle bell!
