23 Unique and Creative Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

Step up your game this year with these 23 unique and creative Christmas gift-wrapping ideas! From how to make the perfect bow and cheap wrapping supplies to unique gift toppers, we have something for everyone.

Do you remember when gift bags first became a thing?

They sure do make “wrapping” a gift easier, don’t they?

But there’s something about unwrapping a gift that’s been wrapped with paper that takes us back to our childhood.

Somehow, those gifts feel a little more special. Why is that?

Maybe it’s knowing that whoever is giving the gift took a little extra time to wrap it.

Or maybe it’s because wrapped gifts look a little fancier?

Don’t get us wrong: we both rely heavily on gift bags throughout the year.

But when Christmas rolls around, we like to kick it old school and wrap those gifts with paper.

And bows.

With cute little gift tags.

We’ve rounded up some fantastic ideas to help you level up your holiday gift-wrapping game, without it costing you a lot of time or money.

We’re also sharing some of our favorite tools that make wrapping gifts so much easier!
