I joke with people that wrapping gifts is my hobby. That’s how much I love gift wrapping. I have an mobile wrapping station in my home that I permanently set up over Christmas. And, I have just as much fun planning out my Christmas gift wrapping as I do picking out everyone’s gifts. It is a creative outlet and an extension of our holiday decor.
And, this year, might be my favorite wrapping theme yet. Neutral Christmas wrapping.
Our neutral Christmas decor is mostly shades of white, gold, champagne, and silver. With of course, greenery thrown in. So, this year I took that color theme and ran with it. I found the sweetest wrapping paper with asymmetrical dots in a soft metallic gray. I went with ribbons in velvet and satin in shades of green, metallics, and threw in some black for a fun contrast. Using high quality products make your wrapping feel luxurious.
Then, of course you need embellishments. In the past I have used pom-poms, giant fantastical bows, and red berries. This year, I wanted to use bells, greenery but in shades of gold, and sweet wooden ornaments. A trick I have learned over the years is to break up your embellishments. Instead of finding individual pieces of greenery that fit each of your presents, it is much easier to buy bunches, and then use wire cutters to break off into smaller pieces that work perfectly for gifts.
I love the combination for this year’s neutral Christmas wrapping and almost wish that we weren’t unwrapping the gifts soon, so they could stay out to look at all year. They are really part of the decor this time of year. So, I always try to get gifts and wrap them as early as possible to enjoy them for as long as possible.
