Everyone loves the holiday season, especially all the different elements that make them festive and special.
The incredible decorations, the hearty meals, and of course the gifts, they’re what we all look forward to. However, some elements are slightly more important than the others with gifts being on top of the list.
Let’s face it, we all love giving and receiving gifts, especially from people close to us.
With so many incredible festive gift wrap options, our gifts don’t have to be simple and plain anymore! Any gift can be enhanced with good gift wrap and accessories.
If you’re looking to know more about this, we’ve got you covered. Our list of unique gift-wrapping ideas for 2021 can help you make your festive gifts even more special and exciting.
With this in mind, let’s get started!
1. DIY Accessories With Simple Wrapping Paper
For a simple and elegantly wrapped present, sticking to the basics and adding your personal touch through DIY accessories is a great idea.
From simple cardboard snowflakes and elf cutouts to more complicated origami art, you could make gift artistic accessories out of paper. Then, while wrapping the gift with the gift wrap, you could tie a thread or ribbon around the gift and at the centre add these accessories.
Whilst this is relatively simple, it is a classic and personal way of wrapping your gift to make it more thoughtful and special.
2. Layer With Ribbons
For those wishing to get a little more creative with their gift wrapping, consider layering your gift with different sized ribbons. Ribbons add a playful and creative touch to every gift and by layering them, you can make your presents even more artistic.
What you’ll need to do is get different sizes of ribbons and layer them accordingly so that each of them is visible. From smooth satin ones to glitter ribbons, don’t be afraid to experiment with different looks and styles for the gifts.
If you’re opting for multiple ribbons, keep the gift wrap as simple as you can so that the ribbons truly stand out.
3. Pastels And Faux Flowers
If florals are something right up your alley, pastels and faux flowers are the way to go. For this, you can get elegant pastel wrapping paper and faux flowers that match.
You could switch up the traditional gift wrap by opting for a stylish gift box too and artistically decorate it with different sized flowers. This accessory instantly adds colour and captivates everyone’s eyes.
Additionally, you can also make the faux flowers yourself and try different patterns as a personal touch to the gift.
4. Christmas Themed Elements
If you wish to incorporate Christmas-themed accessories and elements for your gift, you can personalise them to make them more festive.
From turning the present into a Santa or elf themed with decorations that resemble their outfits to adding a few additional elements, there’s a lot you can do. Additionally, you could also add in reindeer cutouts with the string or maybe even tiny wreaths to make them more special.
5. Watercolour Gift Wrapping
For something different from the traditional patterned wrapping paper, why not opt for something different like watercolour wrapping paper?
While you may easily be able to get this on the market, if you wish to DIY it, you can get plain white tissue paper; you can paint it yourself to be able to easily personalize it the way you want.
6. Chalkboard Wrap Paper
One of the newer ways to change your traditional paper is to go for chalkboard wrapping paper. While this may sound like something complex, it’s actually very simple.
All you need to do is find black wrapping paper and use chalk to customise it by adding your own unique designs or maybe even a special message based on who you’re gifting the present to.
7. Hand Written Paper
If you have good calligraphy skills and wish to make your gift a little more unique than the ordinary, you can use handwritten paper and test out your skills on brown craft paper.
Instead of writing something simple, you can write something specifically for the guest with a special message to make it even more special.
To Sum Up…
While these are only a few of our favourite gift wrapping ideas, there are so many more options you can choose from to make them special and unique.
With this, you can make all your celebrations even more unique, your guests are sure to love them!
