    How do you wrap your presents?

    Every year i just wrap them and stick a tag on but this year im thinking i want to make them look all pretty so im thinking of wrapping ribbons and putting bows on.

    What do you all do??

    I don't make much effort :blush: But I always use really Christmassy paper so it wouldn't look right with ribbons I don't think.

    I got matching ribbons this year and I am putting candy canes in the tied bows on the presents. These r for family and friends only though. The kids Santa presents are just wrapped no bows or frills. I do my 2 kids in different paper so I can tell who's is who's on Xmas eve. X

    For the family gifts I wrap them in posh paper, put a ribbon round and then get a Quality street chocolate, hole punch the end and thread that onto the ribbon.I tie it into a bow.Sometimes I even add colored feathers :D

    The kids gifts are just wrapped with sellotape and a stick on label, lol

    Usually I just wrap them and then put a bow on, this year though Im going to use ribbon and then put a candy cane in the tied bow. I see the idea on here, I think vix1989? had a thread on it somewhere. :)

    For kians presents i will just wrap them up in lots of different xmasy paper with just a little cellotape so that they are easy to open, and i like to mix and match his i think it looks so fun. For everyone elses i put a bit more effort in and use ribbon and bows usually the same paper for them, last year i used plain silver paper and some lovely ribbon and bows, they looked so pretty xx

    One year I did wrap them in ribbon and a bow but usually I wrap them and just put a bow on them then put them into a gift bag. Callums will just be wrapped up in paper, don't really see the point for Callum in wrapping them with bows/ribbons as don't think he'll appreciate them much :haha: xx
