With the holiday season upon us, there is nothing better than seeing your loved ones opening their presents. If you are a working and busy mum looking for some easy and effective gift-wrapping ideas, this guide will equip you with all the necessary knowledge and tools.
Incorporate 3D Wrapping
Gifts often look flat offering only one dimension. Why not take things further by introducing an interactive element? You can glue in toys, building blocks or crayons shaped like animals. For example, try placing a strip of black paper on the side of the gift. Then, add some white paint strokes to make it seek like a road. Finish by taking a toy car for an impressive 3D element. Your kids will love seeing their favourite toys on their presents which will provide some fun and laughter for the whole family.
Utilise Christmas decorations
Another simple idea would be to make full use of your Christmas decorations. You could take a plain brown bag and use it as a canvas to transform your gift wrap into a festive decoration. Why not attach some mini wreaths, cut-out snowflakes, ribbons or paper trees. It may also be a good idea to tap into your creative side and draw some holiday lights. All of these will bring a joyful and festive atmosphere to your house in no time.
Choose personalised paper
If you would like to catch your family’s attention, why not consider adding a bit of a personal touch? Dom and Geri offers a unique approach to presents by allowing you to customise your greeting card and gift wrapping. You can upload a photo of your kids and select the occasion and age range to ensure you make the best choice. Including a personal message on a greeting card will always be appreciated and your kids may want to keep as a decoration in their room.
Recycle an old newspaper
If you are looking for ideas on how to wrap the presents for the rest of your family and friends, it may be worth considering using recycled paper. For instance, you can take an old newspaper and turn it into amazing gift wrapping. To add more individuality, you could try and find one from the year in which the person was born. Also, if you don’t have any newspapers around, you can use comics or magazines. This will impress your loved ones and make your present stand out.
Don’t forget gift toppers
One of the most important parts of wrapping your gift is the toppers you use. Surely, you can use a classic bow and make your present look great. However, for a more outstanding effect, consider using different items such as yarns, paper flowers, animal ornaments or tissue pom poms. This is a simple way to create something unique. You can pick and choose depending on the preferences and tastes of your recipient.
Hopefully, these tips have given you some inspiration on how you can create unique present wrapping during a busy schedule. Regardless of your experience, you will be able to wow your family this holiday season.
