I hate wrapping.....ugghhhh.....BUT I am going to *try* really hard this year to make all packages as gorgeous as possible!!! Wish me some serious luck!

Kim @ keller-creative said...

Gorgeous. I love all of these but I think I'd get all mad when it came time to open the presents because I wouldn't want people to "ruin the pretty"

Hilliary@ Happily Ever Healthy said...

Beautiful ideas for wrapping! I am terrible at wrapping presents! I usually revert to the good old bag and tissue paper!

rachel @ Just a Touch of Gray said...

I'm the worst at wrapping! I just want it to be over! However, I wish I had the patience to make my packages looks beautiful! I've been obsessed with that second image and those yarn balls are adorable!

Leslie said...

The fanciest I get is adding a bit of ribbon or an ornament. All of these are lovely though!

Ange said...

Confession time, my hubby does the wrapping. I wish I could wrap like Martha but I can't. Hubby is very precise in his measuring of paper (Hello math geek) and has nice crisp edges. If I could wrap maybe I'd be more inspired to make the packages pretty. Also we are mostly wrapping for four kids, lets be real, all they care about is the gift. Maybe when I'm older I'll wrap pretty gifts. I love the pics, especially the musical paper with bells. So fun! If anyone wants to wrap me a pretty gift, I'd love it! ;)

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

LOVE the musical ones . . . and the poms. I am sort of addicted to wrapping.

natasha {schue love} said...

Such cute ideas! I really need to quit my day job and just spend my days crafting, wrapping and baking! Sounds good right?!

A Delightful Design said...

I love a beautiful package, but despise spending money on the wrapping. This year I bought craft paper on the cheap and i'm just going with that. Some day!

Amanda Hill said...

Ummm I need to step up my wrapping game. Sad to admit I sometimes shop at places I know provide wrapping....sad!

Kelly @ JAX does design said...

I especially like the sheet music paper with the big silky bow. If I had the time and the patience, I'd try all these wrapping ideas! I'm lucky if I manage to get the paper on half-straight and a bow on top ;-)

Daily Cup of Couture said...

I'm actually digging the brown paper bag and the newspaper ideas! With festive ribbons.

bridechic said...

So glad you covered this. Wrapping is one of those great pleasure of Xmas and almost any holiday! Love the first pic . . .

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

Uggh wrapping :), I haven't even started shopping yet...I know, I am running out of time. I am planning on going natural this year. I love wrapping with natural brown paper and adding a pretty ribbon and sprig of greenery.

Cam | Bibs and Baubles said...

Oh! My gifts are never that beautifully wrapped. I need to step my game up!

adventuresindinner said...

Love, love the aqua!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Few things excite me more than goregous wrapping! No joke. Pathetic I know but I can't help it! :) xoxo

Lonely Wife Project said...

I leave it to my husband because I'm lazy!

I have never heard of A slip shop, will be checking out pronto. I was thinking I would have to get rid of a few dresses casue there a smidge to short, one of their slips could save them.

Natalie {Designer Bags and Dirty Diapers} said...

Now I just feel sad about all the gifts ghetto wrapped under my tree. There's always next year, right??

Punctuation Mark said...

i need to get my wrapping going... yikes!

Baby Shopaholic said...

I cant stand wrapping gifts. These looks so pretty but I dont have it in me!

Tish said...

I WISH I could wrap like that!

Anne said...

these are all so pretty. I have resorted to gift bags this year. Boring, right? But easy, and quick. And I had a ton leftover from last Christmas so FREE! Woo hoo :)

designstiles said...

I'd like to get more creative with my Christmas wrapping, but my hands start hurting after the fifth attempt at a pretty bow. I'm uncreative in the wrapping department. Unwrapping though, now that's where my skills are.

Lisa - A Room with A View said...

This wrapping is so inspirational and fun - so many great ideas - thank you!

emily said...

What neat ideas! But I am generally too much in a hurry to make my gifts look super pretty!

Bud and Leo said...

Love all of these! We actually did a post on bows today! I love love love wrapping :)

birdie to be said...

Love all these great ideas! Im trying to diy my own tags. So thank you for the inspiration!

nancy @ {COZAMIA} said...

wow these are all gorgeous and special in their own way, i totally suck at wrapping though!

Haley @ Cardigan Junkie said...

I can't cut a straight line to save my life, which means striped paper (to use as a guide) or solids are my best options. I love the look of brown paper with big bows for a uniform scheme under the tree. However, we are currently showcasing the hodgepodge style of gift wrapping at casa de Cardigan Junkie :)

hi-d said...

I love beautifully wrapped packages. I saw a video a while back that suggested using aluminum foil for wrapping a present. That might be an interesting idea...

Merry Christmas!

Last year I was all about rustic wrapping, like the one in the 3rd image. This year I love the idea of simple and elegant. I found a luxurious black paper with a velvety black print and I will use white ribbon for this. I will also go for all-white and white with grey. :)

I saw the confetti idea on Pinterest, but my only thought is that it would come off and gooo EVERYWHERE! That and glitter always works too!

Megan {Splendid Design} said...

I love gift wrapping the only part it can be very time consuming. As much as I like the holiday paper from the stores I love the regular old brown paper.

Drew {Coral Cafe} said...

I'm really loving that wrapping with the gold tassel!
