For the Fashionista

Creative Holiday Wrapping for the Fashionista

Go for glam wrapping paper with special detailing for something that looks luxe and high end. Here we added a gold compact mirror, and wrote the gift receiver's name inside. Finally, we added a pair of faux fur earmuffs for a seasonal — and functional — touch.

For the Man in Your Life

We wrapped these three boxes in different suiting fabric, and stacked them on top of each other for a tiered look. If you've got a piece of fabric with a pocket, add a pocket square for a stylish touch. Wrap a box or two with a bow tie for a finishing touch that's on theme.

For the Baker

Here we grabbed a round hat box and wrapped it in specialty ribbon to make it look like a layered cake. Add a mini wooden rolling pin with the person's name on it. And as a final touch, place recipe cards and a kitchen timer in a coordinated shade on top.

For the Traveller

Wrap a shirt box in vintage-inspired map wrapping paper. Wrap two strips of brown grosgrain ribbon around it, and add a piece on the side to look like a suitcase handle. Finally, add a luggage tag and write the receiver's name on it!
