Our 10 Favourite Father's Day Gift Wrapping Ideas

Beautiful gift wrapping doesn't need to be expensive - or boring. You can personalize a simple gift with some creative wrapping techniques. Here are a few of our favourites - just in time for Father's Day...

1. Father's Day gift-wrap apron:

This is a clever, cost effective way of combining two gifts into one and also adding a cool card:

 
 
 
We love using craft paper as wrapping paper (it's cheap and environmentally friendly!), especially when it's jazzed up with a bright ribbon or jute twine
 
 


 
This idea is from the Sew Many Ways blog
 
 
2. Gorgeous Father's Day boxes:
 

 
 
3. Chic black and white:
 

The contrast of black and white gift wrapping against natural craft paper is a really striking look.


4. Newspaper, but not as you know it:


Whilst newspaper is a cheap and effective form of wrapping paper, you can make it look less 'tight-arse' with the addition of a beautiful trim such as this black and white ribbon. Image from May Arts.
 
 

Red is also a gorgeous contrast colour against black and white.

5. Stamps are back!
 
The good old craft paper has come in handy again when stamped with some old-school rubber stamps. You could also apply this idea to wrapping paper for other occasions (birthday, anniversary - whatever) and stamp the recipient's name on the paper:
 
 
 

 
 
6. Pegs aren't just for clothes...
 
They're also a nifty way of attaching a gift card to a present...
 
 
 

 
 
7. Tied up:
 

If you purchase a beautiful tie for dad, why not make it the hero of your gift wrapping too?
 
 
8. Personalize with family pics:
 
 
 
A touching way of personalizing gift wrapping for your recipient
