I must say, nowadays gift wrapping has become quite an art and it is not always the kindest to our wallets. Luckily there are loads of ideas to be found. You can still create beautifully wrapped packages from basic goodies that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. With a bit of creativity and imagination you can wrap the prettiest of prezzies. When opting for a more stylish or graphic Christmas feel, use touches of black. It looks great when combined with natural twine, beads and a Christmas print or two. Hope you all get some fabulous inspiration from these lovely ideas.
