Christmas Gift Wrapping: Bold Stripes

The great thing about stripes is that you can use them for anyone - at anytime of year. Striped paper or striped ribbon - this gift wrapping style works for Christmas, especially when teamed with red, green, gold or silver ribbon and accessories. 


Why we love it:
  • Striped wrapping paper (especially a bold stripe in a gender-neutral colour like this) should be a household-staple. It's classy and great for any occasion. 
  • Paired with a green ribbon and Christmas gift tag, this wrapping has a Christmas feel, but without a hint of tacky glitter. 
  • Look for a slightly thicker, better quality wrapping paper. You'll appreciate this if you've ever used cheap wrapping paper on Christmas Eve when you're frantically trying to wrap last-minute gifts!

Why we love it:
  • Use whatever wrapping paper you like (plain kraft paper has a premium, organic look) and dress it up with these show-stopping striped ribbons. 
  • The addition of holly even makes the gift with black and white ribbon look Christmassy. You could also use a star, bauble, Christmas gift tag, or any other accessory that coordinates with your ribbon and wrapping.
