Christmas Gift Wrapping

After a frantic couple of weeks wrapping gifts, assembling hampers and printing shipping labels here at The Paper Package, it’s so nice to be able to sit back for a while and browse the internet for fantastic and creative Christmas gift wrapping ideas.

You can never over-emphasise how much the enjoyment of a gift begins right from the moment of receiving it, and how much fun it is to be given a present that has been wrapped with care and creativity.

So heading into the final days before Christmas,  I hope you enjoy some of this inspirational gift wrapping eye-candy…

Natural Style

Adding embellishments to a gift package can be a great idea – and what’s more traditional and festive than red berries, greenery, holly and ivy…
