The Gift Wrapping Guide.

wrapping guide 1

I absolutely love wrapping gifts. I love the whole process of choosing a theme, going to loads of shops and picking out my favourite bits. Finding the perfect wrapping paper, and spending an afternoon in my room, with a hot chocolate and making everyones gifts look really cute.

This year I’ve gone for the classic gold and red theme, and I’m decked out in ribbons, bows and glitter.

My gorgeous wrapping paper is only Β£1 from Home Bargains, and I’ve collected a variety of ribbons and bow from Wilko and Home Sense.

I love to take my time on each present, making sure it looks perfect to me, and I love making every present slightly different.

For this particular present, as I was posting it to a friend I used a box. This box is super cute from Home Sense, and I’ve added red shredded paper to keep everything safe in there, but to also add to the theme. I also love including gifts within my wrapping. I always add a candy cane to presents, and this year I’ve also bought chocolate coins, and bells to attach to the ribbons.

For the rest I’ve used a variety of ribbons and bows, and I’ve layered them up to add different textures. I’ve again added candy canes and bells to some to add an extra little gift. the huge bow is from Home Sense and I think it looks absolutely gorgeous!
