Few universal truths exist more certain than that referred to the act of giving; and it is that giving, as long as it is from the heart, is a show of love. And it doesn't matter if it's a letter, a macaroni necklace, a vintage jacket, a postcard from our last trip or an exclusive jewel. The act of giving transcends the material and that is why it never goes out of style, it is never too much and it always (always) brings out a smile (even if it is shy).
So as the time of the year is predicted when more gifts are made (and claimed) per thousandth of a second, we have decided not to focus only on the gift itself, but on how we are going to give it. Because a gift is not only a gift, but also everything that surrounds it. And because Pinterest is the best social network that we can use if we are looking for inspiration, ideas and the best advice on crafts.
Therefore, below we show you the most incredible, easy and beautiful wrappers that we have found browsing the net.
- 1. Simple, classic and following the standards of Christmas. Combining red with craft paper and decorating with a small craft is a sure hit. A sublime idea that we have found through Kate Creative Space and that explains step by step how we can be simple and very Christmassy.
- 2. If we are true believers of Christmas, we have children at home or, simply, we want to be the Christmas "soul" of our home, this handmade 'advent calendar' has enchanted us. These are small recycled paper bags with some off-white decorations that we can easily find in any stationery store. This German tradition is a countdown and, according to its followers, it should be ready on December 1. From that day on, we will be discounting days until we reach Christmas Eve.
- 3. For us "less" is always "more" and that's why these wrappers are our favorites. It is about wrapping our gift with some recycled paper that we like and embellishing it with a brown raffia rope and a small dry plant. We have verified that both the rosemary leaf and the pine leaf hold up very well, flavor the packaging and, in addition, we can find them very easily. We have found both ideas on the Me and The City blog and we find them beautiful
- 4. And finally, if lettering is your thing, Christmas gifts may be the perfect excuse to put it into practice. Searching through Pinterest we have found this simple and very aesthetic idea in the profile of Always Rooney , an American online store that sells synthetic leather items.
