Wrapping Materials
  • Vintage or National Geographic maps
  • Brown craft paper
  • Vintage tea or cookie tins
  • A fancy silk scarf
  • Thin ornate wallpaper
  • A cute straw basket or picnic basket
  • A vintage scarf
  • Hand-made paper (with pressed flowers in it)!
  • Gingham print
  • Cath Kidson-esque floral paper
  • Sheet music
  • Pretty news print with lots of text
  • Layers of tissue paper
  • Plaid/tartan or make your own using paint or colored pencils

Tying Materials
  • Satin ribbons
  • Vintage Lace
  • Pop-pom strings 
  • Lace tape
  • Deco tape
  • Velvet ribbon
  • Soft yarn
  • Embroider a faux bow with thick yarn or ribbon 

  • Vintage hard candies
  • Brass or vintage buttons
  • Bright berry sprigs
  • Evergreen sprigs
  • Paper snowflakes
  • Candy canes
  • A giant bow!
  • A fantastic brooch
  • Stamps

If you are giving more than one present to someone at the same time, try coordinating all of the packages with a common color scheme or motif~

 Happy holidays everyone!
