Need creative yet simple gift wrapping ideas? 🎁
If you’ll be gifting items and truly want to package it up in a unique way, here are a few EASY and cute holiday ideas to get inspired! Wrapping even the simplest items in a thoughtful way, can make an ordinary item extra exciting and fun to receive as a gift!
1.) Simple Reindeer Wrapping
Get this super cute looking reindeer by gluing a red craft pom pom to a gift and using a Sharpie marker to draw simple reindeer details to the top. I re-purposed my kids’ roll of drawing paper as wrapping paper for these gifts. If you have a roll of Kraft paper on hand that could work also!
2.) Gifts in a Jar
Jumbo storage jars make excellent gift wrapping because you can fill them with whatever you’d like just like a gift basket. They look so pretty, are fairly inexpensive, and super functional to use after Christmas. To create, simply place cotton village snow or white tissue paper on the bottom of jars, and fill with desired gift-able items.
My favorite jar is this this 2 gallon jumbo glass jar I found at Walmart for around $11, and I also found a similar smaller one at TjMaxx for $7.
Tip: You can always use this same idea for small gift items in dollar store mason jars. Check out how to create a DIY Gift Card Snow Globe in this previous post.
I was able to create a holiday baking themed gift with lots of goodies, and then one for my daughter’s teacher with a cute little sign and bath & beauty items. So fun!
3.) Starbucks Cup Gift Card Holder
Love giving Starbucks gift cards? Fill a frappuccino cup with candy and stuff a gift card inside. Then, top it with some white tissue paper, secure lid back on, and finish with a bow around the straw. Such a cute way to give a gift card!
Tip: I used Hershey’s Almond Chocolate Kisses because the packaging was more of a coffee color, but you can definitely use whatever candy you’d like!
4.) Candy Gift Toppers
Know a candy fan? Top a gift with their favorite candy for a sweet and easy gift topper! Simply wrap gift with ribbon and tie a piece of candy at the top. Holiday related candy would be fun too!
Tip: I’m awful at tying gift wrapping ribbons, so I’ll often use curling ribbon and run scissors at the ends to “curl’. Looks festive and is super easy!
5.) Paint Can Gift
Your local hardware store has a unique gift wrapping option to consider – a paint can with paint chip gift tag! I found my empty can for around $4 at Home Depot.
Simply decorate it with wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, ribbon, or any materials you may have on hand for an adorable way to present a gift! Cut the paint chip card into a tree shape for a fun tag idea.
I filled my bucket with a couple cute mugs and hot cocoa supplies as a special gift for a friend. Get the Merry & Bright free printable image HERE. I just love how this gift idea turned out! So cute, easy and festive!
BONUS IDEA! Zip Ties Gag Gift Wrapping 😂
Need a funny/silly gift wrapping idea? How about wrapping and then tying your gift with a ton of plastic zip ties!? LOL 😁 That’s one way to draw out the suspense of what’s inside! Ha!
