Pretty Presents

Today we are going to share some tips on how to make your presents even prettier this holiday season with unique wrapping materials and accessories. 

Beautifully wrapped gifts are extra appealing and will make the gift recipient feel like you went that extra mile.   Although wrapping paper is in high supply this time of year, finding really good quality paper with exciting prints is sometimes hard to come by.  Below are a few stores that carry gift wrap with unique prints and are sure to make your presents sparkle and shine!

I personally love fabric and therefore tend to have scraps lying around the house.  Consider wrapping your gifts in some of your favourite fabric, which not only will be stunning, but also environmentally friendly since it can be reused.  If you don’t have fabric at your fingertips, go to your local Fabricland or take a trip to Queen Street West in Toronto.  

To make your presents extra pretty, I would suggest topping it off with an accessory like the ones we have outlined below.

You may not want to give away your Grandmother’s antique brooch, but costume jewelry brooches are easy to come by these days and are relatively inexpensive.  Instead of a traditional bow, add some ribbon fastened with a brooch and you have a gift with some sparkle and pizzazz.

A Christmas tree ornament is also a nice gift topper and later can be hung on the tree. 

For those of you that are crafty, top off your gift with a fabric flower or snowflake to make it extra fun and festive. 

 

Last but not least, if your gift is for a female purchase some pretty hair accessories such as elastic headbands like the ones below that have a bow or flower detail, and use those in place of a traditional bow.  It will make your gift extra gorgeous, and better yet your gift recipient can get some use out of it. 

 

Happy Wrapping!
