The Art of Gift Wrapping

There’s something so special about a beautifully wrapped gift. I grew up with a mother who made every wrapped gift a work of art — you would never get a gift from her with tacky little stick-on bows to go on top. She to this day uses the most beautiful paper and ribbon, and always adds an extra element on top, whether it be an ornament or simple clippings from outside. She has always thought outside the box, literally.

It's not that the paper or ribbon has to be the most expensive in the world. Sometimes my favorite wrapped gifts are simple and use natural materials you can find in your own backyard. For example, I love the example below wrapped in natural kraft paper with Christmas tree trimmings and pinecones secured by natural raffia ribbon.


Happy gift wrapping. The truth is anyone can do this, it just takes a little extra creativity to add some personality to your gift wrapping.
