20 of the Most Beautiful Holiday Gift Wrapping Ideas!

Beautiful and creative, but also simple. These gorgeous holiday gift wrapping ideas will inspire and give you ideas for making your own gifts look extra special.

As is typical of me this time of year, I’m still shopping, and I haven’t wrapped a thing! I seem to always put it off which leads to rushing and usually, pretty uninspired packages of a bow slapped on some paper. And I’m determined to change that! If you’re like me and you want to up your wrapping game, then this is the post for you. 

There are lots of stunning fancy packages out there, but to me, some of the prettiest are often some of the simplest. 

Maybe this will inspire me to get just a little more creative this year ~ and hopefully, you too. Because I must admit, even a small gift feels much more special when someone has taken extra care to wrap it beautifully. 😉

    I think I pinned almost everyone of your beautifully wrapped gifts! It is amazing how good you made something look with just a simple sprig of greenery and a pretty bow. This is my style of giftwrapping! Thank you for the inspiration

  7. Omg, 😍 these packages. I’ve always tried to find creative ways to dress up gifts too. But these are so creative and heartfelt. Beautiful! I’m in 😱. Thank you for this post. This has brightened my day, my week!

    1. Aww I love hearing that Tara! I’m so glad you loved it! I need to get wrapping!! 😉

      Happy Holidays to you!


  8. These are just gorgeous! Amazingly enough we’ve spent more this year than ever before and there is almost nothing under the tree! Gifts delivered by amazon to out of state kids and cash to help purchase a new car…no need for these beautiful ideas. Really miss those years when we could have all the gifts under the tree!

    1. Isn’t that so true? As our kids have gotten older (and nieces and nephews too) we have less under the tree too! But I AM going to try to do a better job of wrapping the ones that are under there!

      Thanks for stopping by Margo and Merry Christmas!
