  • 5 Creative Christmas Wrapping Ideas

    Wrapping presents is unavoidable at Christmas time. Whether you love wrapping or hate it, here are our top tips for creating a beautifully wrapped gift.

    Christmas wrapping ideas from Poundstretcher

    1 – Choose the right wrapping paper

    It may sound obvious but choosing a pretty paper does half the work for you. Check out Poundstretcher’s range of festive wrap like this glitzy reindeer print.

    Top Tip - Wrapping intricately shaped objects can be tricky so try putting your gifts in a box first so they’re easier to wrap.

    2 – Skip the wrapping all together

    Hate wrapping? Don’t bother! Grab yourself a festive gift bag and some iridescent shred instead. Simply pop your gifts in the bag and cover them with the shred for added Christmas magic. If you have any shred left over, you can always use it to add a little sparkle to your Christmas tree!

    3 – Switch up your gift bags

    Instead of using a Christmas gift bag, why not check out our Santa sacks? Fill your sack with gifts and add a sprinkle of glitter snow for a magical touch. Our glitter snow can be used to decorate too!

    4 – Decorate!

    Want to add a bit of Christmas sparkle to your gifts? Try our luxury silver ribbon to wrap around your presents and top everything off with a Santa belt bow. They are the perfect finishing touches to any gift.

    5 – Create your own gift tags

    If you’re looking to add a personal touch to your gifts or just want to get creative with the little ones then these colour-in trees are perfect for you. Simply decorate them however you like, write your message on the back and attach them to your gifts!
