Have you ever received a gift that was so beautifully and personally wrapped you didn’t want to open it?
 
It was like being given two presents in one.
 
It’s truly giving from the heart; a joyous feeling for both the giver and the receiver.
 
Here are four ways that illustrate how you can wrap your gifts this holiday season to show how much you really care. Best of all, they’re simple, creative, and inexpensive.
 
NOTE: You’ll notice that in these photos, either inexpensive Butcher paper or white wrapping paper has been used. They serve as the perfect background. What makes them personal is how you wrap them.
 
INITIALS
Your computer can print letters in any size, color, or font. In these photos, matching colored ribbon or metallic gold thread was used for the wrapping. Further embellishment comes from small Christmas ornaments like the red ball or bells.
 
THE EXTRA GIFT
Add something that the person can use after the unwrapping.
 
The first photo is for someone who loves to bake. The cookie cutters will be used by the recipient long after they’ve opened the actual gift.

This is the perfect bonus gift for someone who loves to write and send letters via snail mail (no emails)! The monogrammed wax seal and wax sticks become part of the present wrapping.
 
PHOTOS

No need to have a gift tag when you do this. The photo quickly tells who the gift is for.

The photo can also be a place that is meaningful to the recipient and evokes happy memories.

In this photo, the giver used part of a road map placed on a Christmas tree-shaped tag that depicts a place that the giver and receiver visited together. More wonderful memories.
 

PERSONAL INTERESTS AND HOBBIES

For a musician or music lover, wrapping a present with vintage sheet music will surely evoke a warm smile. You get the idea. It can be anything that is of special interest to the recipient. It shows how much you care  and that you took the time to think of them and who they are as a person. Any gift given is so much sweeter and meaningful.
