We're now into the first official week of December and my excitement for Christmas has reached a whole new level. When my friends at The Reject Shop asked me if I could share some gift wrapping ideas for Christmas, I decided that I'd show you some super simple and slightly out-of-the-box ways to jazz up your Christmas wrapping whilst having a bit of fun along the way.

Christmas wrapping shouldn't be expensive - but that doesn't mean it has to be boring! I'm going to show you how you can take one $2.50 roll of brown paper wrapping from The Reject Shop and make it your own. 

Let's jump into wrapping! >> 


Cute and Crafty Easy Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas for Christmas - Modern, Vintage, Boho, Rustic Holiday, Black White Gold and Other Beautiful Holiday Ideas, Cheap, Easy, Creative

First I thought we could start with the cute. Instead of your run of the mill printed paper, add a little extra oomph with some Christmas stickers, stencils or cut outs. 

I took a $3.50 pack of scrapbooking Christmas die cuts and stuck them to our gifts with a glue stick (you could also use double sided tape or PVA glue). Add some ribbons or glitter, stamp on your recipient's name or theme it to suit their personality - or even the gift inside. 

Materials Needed:
Brown paper wrapping - $2.50 per roll 
Christmas die cut set - $3.50 for 134 
Glue and sticky tape 
Total cost for this look: $6

Lovely Lace Easy Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas for Christmas - Modern, Vintage, Boho, Rustic Holiday, Black White Gold and Other Beautiful Holiday Ideas, Cheap, Easy, Creative

I love lace and rustic papers or fabrics together so this idea was a no brainer for me. For this theme I used lace scraps from my sewing box (find them at your local craft shop), paper doilies ($2 for 48 at The Reject Shop) and silver ornaments to add a little bit of sparkle. 

Make a doily "flower" by folding and bunching your doilies and layering them together and secure your ornaments with a piece of sticky tape so your gift recipient can also use the ornament on their tree! 

Materials Needed:
Brown paper wrapping - $2.50 per roll 
Paper doilies - $2 for 48
Silver ornaments - $2 each
Glue and sticky tape
Lace scraps  
Total cost for this look: $6.50
Modern Metals Easy Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas for Christmas - Modern, Vintage, Boho, Rustic Holiday, Black White Gold and Other Beautiful Holiday Ideas, Cheap, Easy, Creative

I've been seeing a lot of black, white, gold and silver Christmas themes around lately and these scrapbooking die cuts ($3.50 for 134) from The Reject Shop were perfect for a modern metallic theme. 

I used black ribbons ($2.50 per roll), gold bells ($2.50 for 12) and the die cuts for a deceptively simple look. The gift on the left has a tiny gold bell tucked under the floral die cut (secure it to the back of the cardboard die cut before glueing it on) for a more traditional touch. 

Materials Needed:
Brown paper wrapping - $2.50 per roll 
Onyx die cut set - $3.50 for 148 
12 pack of gold bells - $2.50 
Glue and sticky tape 
Total cost for this look: $8.50 
Festive Floral Easy Unique Gift Wrapping Ideas for Christmas - Modern, Vintage, Boho, Rustic Holiday, Black White Gold and Other Beautiful Holiday Ideas, Cheap, Easy, Creative

Stick with more traditional Christmas colours but add some pretty floral details for this look. I'm a big fan of using gift wrapping elements that can then be reused so we found a mix of floral ornaments, paper flowers and flower hair pins (the red one on the left was only $2 at The Reject Shop). This look is over $10 - but only if you use both paper flowers and hair pins. 

Materials Needed:
Brown paper wrapping - $2.50 per roll 
Ribbon - $2.50 per roll 
Flower Hair Pins - $2 each 
Paper Flower Set - $5 for 5 large flowers 
Total cost for this look: $12

But tell me, have you got your Christmas shopping done yet? 
How do you like to wrap your presents?
And how were your presents wrapped as a child? 
When I was little, Santa's gifts were always unwrapped and in a big stocking but Mum and Dad's presents were beautifully wrapped with customised printed labels (with rainbow WordArt names 😜) that always felt SO special because it was a sticker with my name on it. Best of all? We still get Rainbow WordArt stickers today 😛
