Rustic Christmas Gift Wrapping

I’m fully aware I’m not the first person to have wrapped presents like this but I think they look so good with minimal materials. As you can see I’ve chosen square and rectangular presents to wrap, as any other shape I findย impossibleย to do, and would be totally unsuitable to show to the public. I’ve taken a few photos to show how I wrapped my gifts! The best thing is, you can choose how cheap or expensive you want it to be. The paper costs pennies from the Post Office, I used garden foliage and leftover ribbon from last year.

Above I layered two types of metallic ribbon and attached red berries from a garden shop with a cardboard tag. These tags are so sweet and definitely add to the neutral, rustic theme. Make sure little children aren’t in reach of these berries as they’re not edible! It’s nice to add a bit of shine and sparkle to the brown paper.

Here I used cinnamon sticks and rosemary. Not only do they smell amazing but they really give it that extra nature kick with a woodland feel. I would recommend a hot glue gun for the sticks to ensure they don’t fall off. I bought the rosemary from Waitrose and the cinnamon sticks from the garden stall. If the presents are being opened at home, keep the rosemary and cinnamon sticks for mulled wine or sprinkle over your roast potatoes!

For this present I used a sprig of pine which I got from the garden, or you can snip it off your Christmas tree, and attached a candy cane which is a nice bonus for the present receiver! Below middle I changed up the paper to give more variation with tartan and text wrapping paper and popped a mini Molton Brown shower gel on top for my Dad’s present to make it look a bit different from the others.
