Friday Favorites – Natural Gift Wrap

I recently shared how I’ve been into more of a ‘neutral’ Christmas lately, even swapping out our stockings and leaving some of our brighter ornaments off of the tree this year.

Now I want to take that concept a step further and do more of a natural gift wrap on all of our gifts. There are so many beautiful ways to wrap a gift that don’t involve buying wrapping paper at Target or the local Hallmark store! More beautiful, I think.

I guess I love the idea of “brown paper packages tied up with string” – both literally and figuratively.

Love this! Just brown paper, a ribbon, and some pine cones and yet, so pretty!



Some greenery and a hand stamped tag add so much to this natural gift wrap!


This one reads a little “fancier” due to the shinier ribbon and the frosted pine cones, but it still has the brown paper and hand stamped tag to add the homemade charm factor.


Love that they just used string and added some vintage black and white photos – have to do this!!


Love this candy cane striped twine and the stamping right on the package!


Here they’ve used newspaper which I also love (messy though!)



“Less is more” is very much my mood this year which is why the natural gift wrap look is really speaking to me. Now I just have to see if I can get the rest of the family to play along!

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Me too Cindy! (I already did!)

    Happy Holidays!


  2. These natural looking presents are so pretty. I would love to wrap all my presents that way but I usually wait until the last minute to wrap them and at that point I only have time to use store bought. I do try to use separate paper for each person in our extended family…not my kids though. They like to see a variety of gifts under the tree.
