Wrapping it up...
Can I share a whole bunch of wrapping ideas with you?
These are what I gave last year...
Bundle two presents to the same person together with cord and add a candy cane to the knot.
Pair simple gold tissue with ribbon with festive designs on them - I went with owls for my Mum.
For a bottle tie a couple of ribbons around the neck of the bottle adding bells to the end of the ribbon for more festive fun!
For a jar again I added bells but on a wide metallic ribbon.
Here I matched the pattern on the paper to the motif on the ribbon. This is especially apt as the ribbon says 'Have a yummy Christmas' and the present is chocolate.
There is of course, the standard ribbon round and a bow - it never fails!
Even a gift card in an envelope can be jazzed up with ribbon and a candy cane tucked in to the knot.
Or how about going over board on tiny presents such as jewellery boxes. Use a nice wide ribbon and tie a bow bigger than the box!
