Christmas Gift Wrapping Ideas

I love getting and giving pictures for Christmas. What grandma, grandpa, Aunt or Sister wouldn’t love getting this package? There is nothing more special than saying “I Love you” more than pictures!

 

Christmas wrapping idea: Photocopy a photo of you with the person the gift is for a the "tag".

 

And here are some ideas for the kids. I don’t know a kid that wouldn’t love opening Santa, Rudolph or even Frosty on Christmas morning.

 

Cute candy bar wrappers (snowman, Santa, and Rudolph)

 

I would love to have you share some of your creative gift wrapping ideas!

Christmas Gift in a Jar for Mom & Baby

This is such a cute idea for a Christmas Gift for the new mom & baby.

Welcome Baby Jar - gifts for new babies.  Moms at the table bring something that will fit in a jar

This is a cute idea – it even doesn’t have to be created in a jar. You can use a can, basket, or a diaper bag.

Have a great day~
