Holidays only happen once a year so make the most out of it!
This festive season is upon us, and it’s time to add a touch of creativity to the tradition of gift-giving. Beyond the excitement of the gift itself, the presentation plays a significant role in creating a memorable experience. This year, transform the art of gift wrapping into an unexpected expression of thoughtfulness.

So you picked the ornaments for the tree and chances are, you’ve got a color scheme going with all your decor. Tie in the gifts to your palette by going with a monochromatic look. This also looks super elegant!
Each year, your local general store offers the latest designs. It’s new styles every year, and you can usually find one you really like. These are perfect if you are short on time! Make things more cohesive by color coordinating or buy similar sets with the same pattern or by the same designer.

So simple but really gives you a nostalgic look and feel. If you cut down or bought a live tree this year or went with live garland, trim a few pieces and tie on to your gifts.

Your local craft store sells rolls of ribbon for pretty cheap. If you’re looking to ditch the traditional bow, go with some ribbon instead. Find any pattern, texture or color you can think of.
Go all out with nostalgic vibes! Newspaper is pretty cheap and the black and white paper will make any bright bow or pairing really pop.

In Charleston, they decorate their homes using oranges in the garland. Not only is this a traditional style, but it will smell good too! Go the eco friendly route and dehydrate some oranges.
So I guess this year is looking like it will have a nostalgic theme! You know those greeting cards they sell like…everywhere? Grab a set and attach to your gifts. How cute are those Christmas scenes of snowy towns and icy lakes? You can even use the cards as a name tag.

You can always find mini ornaments or tags at your local craft store. These are great as another layer on your gifts. For example, jingle bells!
This Christmas, let your creativity shine through the art of gift wrapping. The effort you put into the presentation will undoubtedly be appreciated by your loved ones. Unwrap joy and spread the holiday spirit with gifts that are not only thoughtful but also beautifully wrapped with love.
