This month has just flown by, has it not?! I can’t believe that Christmas morning is a mere two sleeps away. If you are anything like me, you will be wrapping gifts for the next two nights once your littles have gone to sleep. I’ve been loving all the gift wrap ideas on my Instagram feed this week, and so I’ve rounded-up my absolute favourites in case you’re still busy wrapping (like me!).
Lots of adorable ways to package your gifts below, with links to the creative mamas behind the prettiness!
#HappySunday Sharing the scented gift tags Oli and I made together 🌿 ✴ enjoy your day !!! for some of you it might be a brunch or simply breakfast at home … for this family here in the cold , its our Christmas special at church , then Olivia's Piano concert ! ✴ ✴ ✴ For this easy craft ▶ You need Pine branches , pine cones , oranges ( 3 hours at 200) sprinkled with cinnamon ! We also used Rosemary 🌿
I can only imagine how delicious the above packages would smell… mmmmm…
And this next one is just too good. Gift toppers you can eat?! Don’t mind if I do…
Alright alright, those gingerbread tags were technically part of an advent calendar, but they could totally be used for gift tags as well.
And now another topper – I’m obsessed with these whimsical gift toppers below 😍 So sparkly, I can only imagine how excited my kids would be to open a present adorned with one of these. So magical.
Some happy wrappings.. how sweet are these wee present toppers?! ✨. I'm almost done, just faffing about with some parcels for my mum.. This is the most organised I've ever been!! . . . . #myflatlaysandfinds #floralfridaycompetition #floralfriday #botanicalpickmeup #stilllifegallery #natureonthepage #botanicalcreativity_ #sunday_sundries #inspiredbynature #inspiredbypetals #caughtflowerhanded #inspiredbynature_ #shared_joy #capturingcolour #natureflatlays #cherishandrelish_december #savouringtheseasons #snap_ish #petalsandprops #mymomentsofjoy #tv_neatly #flatlayforever #botanicaldreamers #aloveofnaturesbest #gatherandcurate #writeyouonmyheart #aquietstyle_gather #littlestoriesofmylife #makelightadvent ✨#2016Christmasmix
These next two I picked out because they remind me a bit of my childhood Christmases. Traditional reds and greens, and timeless tartan… I just love the old-Christmassy vibes I get from these ones.
I am so excited for Emma to open her gifts on Christmas. Living in a small apartment this year has made me more mindful about what gifts to give, since we don't have much space in our home. Underneath our tree, Emma has four quality toys (total) from each set of her grandparents in Tennessee, two books, and a couple clothing items. ✨
My wrapping is complete 📦🌲well almost – but usually I'm wrapping on Christmas Eve so…💪🏻 I also got a blog post up about the advent calendar I made this year (only 21 days into December 🙈so sorry) but so many asked about the ideas I used so I thought I would share, just click the link in my bio ☕️⛄️🍪#fourmoresleeps
And for a more modern feel, I’m loving the gift wrap idea below! And WAY to repurpose an old calendar! Fantastic!
three more sleeps guys! i can't wait to watch my littles open up their gifts 🎁🌲✨. . . . #slowhandmadechristmas #thatsdarling #pursuepretty #habitandhome #folkgood #folkgreen #folkchristmas #aquietstyle #abmholidayspirit #folkcreative #postitfortheaesthetic #seekthesimplicity #flatlayforever #cherishandrelish_december #embracingtheseasons #natureinthehome
Foliage is defintely a reoccurring theme in the gift wrap of Instagram. And it’s no wonder. Not only does it pretty-up the simplest of packaging, but to me, that simple added detail just shows that love and care was put into the packaging. 😊 It’s totally a lost art (which is slowly being found again apparently)! It’s not too late to add a twig or two to your own presents. I used some snips from the cedars outside my front porch for my own.
Well, that’s pretty much a wrap. Pun intended. 😝 I’ll finish off by sharing my own presents.
I printed off some photos of the kids to use as gift tags! These adorable square prints are from Social Print Studio.
This post was SO FUN to put together, and I hope it has provided some inspiration! Thanks goes out to all the lovely mamas who allowed me to share their lovely gift wrapping ideas!
Merry Christmas everyone!
