Just a couple of reminders for all of us:

  • Don’t be too hard on yourself when wrapping presents.  They are given in an act of love, and that’s what really matters!
  • Keep wrapping choices simple.  The more you choose, the more decisions you have to make.
  • Set up a designated time – just for wrapping gifts.  Maybe 2 or 3 evenings (then you can add wine)!

Tip #1:  Choose 5 Coordinating Wrapping Paper Rolls

The first thing you will want to do is choose your wrapping paper colors and/or theme.  

  • My color palette this year is neutral (silver & gold) + emerald green (tree color/theme).

I am using 5 different wrapping paper choices to give you an idea of how to mix and match colors and patterns.

Here are the 5 that I chose this year: 

  • Basically, it will be 3  core + 2 accents.
  • 3 Core (Pinecone, Silver Shimmer, Plaid) + 2 Accents (Gold Stripe, Taupe Abstract)

Let’s break it down to make it easier!

3 Core:   1 solid, 1 pattern, 1 neutral.  

  • 1  solid color (silver shimmer)
  • 1 neutral (plaid)
  • 1 pattern (pinecone)

With 3 choices:  Simple & Classic

Helpful recommendations:

  • have at least 1-2 darker colors (either gold or taupe) to add some contrast
  • use at least 1 medium/larger print (pinecone) to create a focal point
  • choose smaller patterns that look similar – dots, trees, plaids, stripes, etc.
  • *You can also use these tips with other colors:  reds, greens, purples, black and whites, metallic shades, etc.

 


Tip #2:  Pick 1-2 Ribbon & Accent Colors

Now that you have chosen your wrapping paper, it’s time to choose ribbon colors.

  • Choose One Color for minimalist style.
  • Choose Two Colors for maximalist style.

My Choices:

I chose white ribbon (to coordinate with my wrapping paper) and green ribbon (to coordinate with my tree color palette).

  • If your tree is red, choose red as your accent ribbon color; blue tree/blue ribbon, etc.
  • If you want to stay all neutral – choose silver or gold as your accent ribbon color.

You can also add decorative accents:

  • Choose snowflakes, ornaments, greenery, etc.

Helpful recommendations:

  • use accessories that match your accent ribbon (green ornaments, white snowflakes)
  • choose neutral ribbon colors that go with your wrapping paper (white, silver, or gold ribbon)
  • use ribbons in different sizes, textures, or patterns 

 


Tip #3:  Choose Boxes In Multiple Shapes & Sizes

This tip will seem very obvious, but I just wanted to mention it. 

  • I know that you will have different box sizes than mine (depending on what’s IN your boxes- lol), but at least you can see how my turned out.
  • This year we had more Amazon boxes (which I just decided to use), and  I love the “cube” shapes.  They really changed the look (presentation) when under the tree.

Here are all 5 Choices

You’ll also notice how I attached different ribbons and accents/accessories to different wrapping paper colors/patterns.

  • White grois grain ribbon is attached to 3 patterns, green ribbon attached to 2 patterns.
  • Snowflake ornament attached to 2 different patterns.

In other words, you will only need a couple of accents/accessories, and the rest of them will still be kept simple (only white ribbon).

This tip will come into play with step #5 – the presentation and placement under the tree.

 


Tip #4:  Mix-n-Match Different Colors

Now, let’s mix-n-match the different wrapping paper colors and patterns.

I wanted to start off with the same sets that I have been referring to – just to make it easier.
