Christmas Countdown: Wrapping Theme

OH YES. I have officially wrapped every. single. present. How cute do they look underneath my tree! It’s almost a shame to give them away ha!

It’s no secret that I love wrapping presents. I don’t know what it is! It’s always been a total passion of mine so you can only imagine how excited I get come Christmas when I get to decide on a specific theme. This year I went with a standard red – can’t go wrong with that festive hue. Then I mixed it up with some cute fairisle printed paper which I got for a steal in October (don’t judge me). I but all of my ribbon in bulk from Flowerscene in Glasgow as it’s MUCH cheaper than buying in normal shops and there’s a nicer selection. They also sell wired ribbon which makes life a whole lot easier when it comes to making bows.

For the gifts that are wrapped in plain red paper, I added some gold ribbon and a cheeky wee candy cane as a decoration.

A gift bag is usually allocated to the gifts which are a pain in the backside to wrap and this year I found THE CUTEST Santa sacks in Poundland for, yes, £1! I may have bought out the store’s stock of them and I plan to keep them for next year too… Loves a bargain!
