Holiday Gift Wrap Ideas

Even though I use a mobile wrapping station, I still vacillate between using wrapping paper and gift bags each year. My mom is the Queen of Gift Wrap. Her gifts are so pretty it’s almost hard to unwrap them because you feel like they shouldn’t be “disturbed” ha ha. She’s gonna get me for saying that but it’s true.

As I shared yesterday, we celebrate the holidays in so many different places I try to keep at least one thing on the gift wrap consistent like the year we burned monograms on wooden ornaments…





or the year we added little embellishments on each package.



Last year I had a neutral theme and I wrapped a one set of faux presents in neutral papers and another set in bright red because I kept hearing, “You know Christmas is supposed to be red. I think it’s like a requirement for Santa.” Ok, I get it, you want some red up in here!


This year, I decided to wrap all of the gifts we were going to open at Loblolly in white and place a word search on the front of each present. One of my nephews is learning to read and I found out over Thanksgiving it’s a big deal when you can read cool words like Lego and Santa. They’re seriously so sweet.  I put a legend on the back. I can’t wait to see if they find them all.


I also wrapped a few presents in this snowflake paper.


This paper is my favorite this year. I picked it up at the Dollar Tree. I know. $1!


See you guys back here tomorrow. I’m sharing a hot chocolate recipe you can give your friends, neighbors or coworkers.

Many blessings,

  1. Hey CoCo – love the word search paper idea! That will be so much fun to see if they can find their names. The Dollar Tree has been our friend this season -that paper is so pretty. Hugs for a great day – can’t wait for the hot chocolate!

    1. I hope they like the word search paper idea too ladies. There is this bit of time between dinner and opening pressies that the littles get a little “excited” so I’m going to pull out their gifts and give them a reason to “settle down” ha ha! Hugs to you both, CoCo

  2. What sweet and beautiful ideas. I am in love with the word search paper, what a thoughtful aunt you are! Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. Thanks so much, Kimm! I can’t wait to see if they actually find them. I had to research what reading level a four year old should be at so I hope I’m good with HUG 🙂 Have an awesome weekend, CoCo
