With Christmas less than one week away, it’s time to get crackin’ and get wrappin’. Wrapping presents is one of the things I look forward to most during the holiday season. You can basically slap anything festive on a box and it will look beautiful! I’ve shared a few ideas below for some fun and easy holiday gift wrap. We’ve got ombre tissue paper fringe gift bags. There’s reindeer pom pom wrapping paper. Clay gift tags. Jingle Bells & sequins even make an appearance. And there is even a download for you guys at the bottom of this lovely post! Downloadable gift tags are the gift that keep on giving the whole year long.

Take a peek:

To make your own tissue fringe gift bags you’ll need:

  • brown paper bags
  • tissue paper in neutral colors (I stole these from the Ikea checkout…)
  • fringe scissors (regular scissors are great too!)
  • hot glue gun & stick

Cut your tissue paper into 3″¬†tall strips that are the width of the bag. Hot glue them to the bag starting at the bottom with the darkest colored paper first. Layer the tissue paper towards the top as you go. Once the hot glue has dried, use your fringe scissors or regular scissors to cut fringe on each layer. It’s so pinata-like! Work your way to the top. Tie with a wooden gift tag, some baker’s twine, and give to yourself. Errr, I mean give to your loved ones?

This reindeer pom wrapping paper is a new spin on the popular pom paper this year. Get a reindeer stamp from Hobby Lobby, stamp it onto some brown kraft paper, and hot glue pom poms in any color to their noses. So easy! This one is definitely my fave. I’ve wrapped all of my presents to myself in this. :)

If you don’t want to venture out and get your DIY on, just buy some lovely wrapping paper from Anthropologie, Paper Source, or a cute boutique near you. The only tough thing with these beauties is that I feel bad bending the paper because it’s so pretty!

If you need to deliver some cookies or prints, roll everything up and stick it inside these silver mailing tubes. Embellish with neon twine from Home Depot and add a clay tag to make it magical (DIY for the tags here!).

      Right?!? I gave that to my sister and when she opened it I was like, “Let’s pull off all the poms now so I can save them.”

      Rachel, the Rudolph paper was definitely the best part of wrapping. Someone could give me an empty box wrapped in that and i would cry tears of joy.
