WHERE TO FIND THE PRETTIEST WRAPPING PAPER
Now that’s you’ve got my hit list of the best gifts, let us not forget about the finishing touch. The wrapping paper absolutely sets the tone for the gift inside. Don’t let it be an afterthought. Ditch the generic paper and opt for something a little more unique, a paper they won’t see under every other tree this season.
From Etsy’s one-of-a-kind vintage papers and the deliciously rich prints from House of Hackney to completely customizable options, there’s no shortage when it comes to variety this season. Below, a selection of wrapping paper that’s almost too pretty rip… almost.
HOUSE OF HACKNEY WRAPPING PAPER BOOK
Bound in a convenient book format, House of Hackney’s individual wrapping paper sheets are sublime. I love the rich colors and the more-is-more vibe.
LOUISE PRETZEL WRAPPING PAPER
Novelty, but not cheesy..! I love this retro Santa mug print.
HOUSES & PARTIES CLASSIC MARBLED GIFT WRAP
This set comes with all four colors so you don’t have to limit yourself to one.
ROMEO + JULES TARTAN RED
Tartan at Christmas may sound like the obvious choice, but there’s nothing boring about this hand drawn print. It’s the chicest spin on tartan I’ve seen yet, and I love the way it looks with a rich velvet ribbon!
SHAVS PAPER CUSTOM WRAPPING PAPER
Make the wrapping paper the present! This personalized paper would be such a fun gift.
ROMEO + JULES SPOTS AND STRIPES WRAPPING PAPER
This one feels festive, but not limited to the holidays only! Use it year-round.
PENTREATH & HALL BIEDERMEIER CHECK PATTERENED PAPER
Inspired by an early 19th century pattern book, this paper is a chic spin on an old Biedermeier check.
CAMBRIDGE IMPRINT ALHAMBRA PATTERNED PAPER
This festive paper would look so good with a shiny gold ribbon.
YEESTORE SHOOTING STARS WRAPPING PAPER
I love the idea of using the green (topped with a gold ribbon!) for holiday paper, but the truth is you could easily make this Etsy wrapping paper work for any occasion – birthdays, graduations, baby showers, and more.
SCHUMACHER FANTASY FOREST WRAPPING PAPER
Schumacher’s latest paper collection is so fab. Not only is the richly-colored print itself unique and whimsical, but the paper is super thick, making the gift feel all the more special.
