While children might rush to tear open their presents, adults are more likely to slowly open them. For them, attractive wrapping is part of the experience. Well-wrapped Christmas gifts can also add to your home decor when placed under the tree or on the mantel. To make a gift more memorable, consider tying an ornament or other item (e.g., cookie-cutter, tree branches with berries) on the top. Or consider wrapping the present with a scarf or a vintage grain sack pillowcase. Another idea is to use a map as wrapping paper. Alternatively, use stamps, drawings or using stickers on the paper.
- Tie an ornament, a cookie cutter or a pack of gardening seeds on top of the gift as an extra bonus.
- Stop by a visitors center nearby and get free maps that you can use as wrapping paper to save money.
- Get some pieces of branch, or berries and place them on top of the gift to give it an outdoorsy type vibe.
