DIY Christmas Gift Wrapping Inspiration

One of my favourite things about gift giving is wrapping them. Don’t get me wrong I do feel giving and receiving presents from loved ones is heart warming and a wonderful tradition of the Christmas holidays – but since I was young I’ve always enjoyed the process: choosing my favourite wrapping papers, laying out my scissors, tape and various colored ribbons and figuring out which would be the best way to wrap that weird looking teddy bear I bought for my sister… Maybe it’s the paper and packaging enthusiast in me or the lover of beautiful things but I thoroughly enjoy it. How about you? Do you use the in-store wrapping service or make the most fun out of it and do it yourself?

If you happen to share my enthusiasm for the art of wrapping, check out these ten gift wrapping ideas I collected. Some require a bit more effort, most can be done in a matter of minutes. All equally beautiful.
