We can’t believe how quickly time is flying in December! Take a break from bustling around buying presents, stringing up garlands, and preparing for holiday parties to check out our 7 tips on how to make your gifts the most fabulously decorated under the tree! Warm up a cup of cocoa and settle in, we’re here to help take your presents from same old to Pinterest-worthy!
1. Fold Like a Pro
Let’s start with the basics. Before you can perfectly trim your presents, you need a solid foundation! Making sure your present is boxed or an easily wrap-able shape makes the process so much easier, and will give your wrapping professional, clean lines.
2. Get Creative With Your Paper
Here are some ideas we love for out of the ordinary wrapping paper!
3. Use Ribbon in Unexpected Ways
While presents wrapped up with a bow on top are pretty and traditional, there are plenty of fun ways to use ribbon to embellish your gifts. Try taking a length of ribbon and wrapping it around the whole present multiple times, then hang a tag or decoration from one strand for a fresh look.
4. Remind Them Not to Peek!
One of our favorite decorations this season are these adorable present stickers! From telling the recipient to “Save Until Last” to letting them know that “Hooray! It’s Not Socks”, these stickers are the easiest way to add some spirit to your gifts.
5. Stamp It On
Looking for more subtle decorations? Wrap your presents with a simple paper with no pattern and adorn your package with stamps in monochrome or metallic ink. We especially love this llama stamp from our Holiday Wrapping Party last year!
6. Add a Laser Cut Tag That Doubles as an Ornament
One of our favorite toys here at Jollity & Co is our laser! We can create almost anything out of acrylic, wood, or paper. Adding a custom laser cut tag to a gift is the perfect personalization that makes a great ornament after all the presents are opened!
7. Attend a Holiday Wrapping Party!
Our annual Holiday Wrapping Party is Sunday, December 17th at 1:30! Bring a friend and 2-3 boxed gifts and enjoy everything you need to wrap and decorate presents, drinks, sweet treats from local vendors, and an evening of crafting fun! Tickets are limited, get yours here and checkout our ticket giveaway here!
Party on! #partywithjollity
