christmas gift wrapping ideas – from me to you

11th November 2022
Want to know how I'm planning on wrapping my presents this year? Read on...
There’s something so magical about shutting the door from prying eyes and spending an afternoon in front of the fire wrapping Christmas presents for loved ones.

Whether it’s the welcomed solitude that it brings in the midst of what can often be a hectic build up; the sense of accomplishment that comes hand-in-hand with knowing that another item’s ticked off of the ‘to do’ list; or the sheer joy that comes with any opportunity to be creative; wrapping Christmas presents is a ritual to be cherished in my eyes.

Which is why I start planning my Christmas wrapping in November!

With that in mind, I’ve shared some of my favourite ideas below in case you’re on the hunt for some Christmas wrapping ideas too.

The wrapping paper

Call me a traditionalist but nothing beats plain brown, recycled Kraft paper wrapped beautifully with a classic ribbon of your choice. Which is why I’ve stocked up on these rolls from Amazon this year (they work year-round for birthday presents too!) For me, it’s a design that never gets old and with the right ribbon, can be used for all ages too.

The ribbon

Which leads me on to these beauties! Last year I went for a plain moss green, velvet ribbon which I still love and will use as a contrasting element this year. That being said, in case you hadn’t already noticed (!) I’m going through a black watch tartan phase right now so I’ve stocked up on this beautiful range from Berisfords to steal the show. I tend to order the 25mm width so that I have suitably sized bows for presents of all shapes and sizes but there’s a few sizes to choose from so take your pick.

SHOP MOSS GREEN

SHOP BLACK WATCH

The jars

It’s not just Christmas wrapping paper and ribbon that deserve attention. Beautiful jars for homemade goods deserve a shout out too. I ordered these gingham glass jars for my homemade chutneys which I plan to gift along with Ali’s homemade honey this year.

The Printed Option

I’ve made no secret that I’m a recycled, Kraft brown paper girl myself but that’s not to say that I don’t adore the idea of beautiful printed wrapper too. Every year, Nancy and Betty offer beautifully thick, sustainable paper in classic designs that work year-on-year. I’m a huge fan of their oak leaf and mistletoe sheets this year – I’d love to hear which take your fancy though!

The Finishing Touches

For the presents that you want to make that bit more special, I always stock up on dried oranges and cinnamon sticks which I incorporate into my ribbon bows… And this year will be no different. That being said, as I mentioned in my opening to chapter eleven, I’ll be using dried thistles and birch twigs heavily in this year’s decorations so they might make a surprise appearance on my wrapping too! 

SHOP DRIED ORANGES 

SHOP CINNAMON STICKS  

The Scent

And finally, for that extra festive send off that is so simple yet effective, The White Company’s ‘Winter’ fragrance comes into its own year-on-year. One spritz of this on each present goes a long way and makes it that bit more special when it’s finally time to open! 

SHOP NOW

So there you have it! My favourite Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas for 2022.
Want to know what my favourite advent calendar is this year too? I’ll be revealing all in the coming days!

Everything feels a little more optimistic as March begins don’t you think?
It’s the start of spring in my book Evergreen shortly followed by the spring equinox so there’s ample time to prepare, nest and refresh. 
The light returns, hello March 🌱
There’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad weather attire 💧
A little indulgence from my comfort of my own home thanks to INCREDIBLE @kmp_skin and @freshbeauty Ad 
for the launch of the new Lotus Youth Preserve Resurfacing dream serum which is a gentle AHA serum with prickly pear flower extract said to boost radiance and it was so lovely to be treated to a first trial to get a very first impression of the serum thanks to KMP and her magic hands. I’ve literally never had a facial like it!
The plum tree in our garden is always the first blossom to erupt at this time of year narrowly beating the much loved aubretia that grows in abundance through our old garden wall. As soon as is acceptable I’m out with my secateurs ready to fill vases and prickly jars with its delicate confetti like blooms 🌸
Februarys carpet of Crocus blooms is always quite the spectacle. I find these little cheerful perennial flowers popping up in the most unlikely of places and what’s special is how they naturalise and multiply each year to create a carpet of flowers ready for the early Winter-Spring bees 🌱
