Creative Wedding Gift Wrapping

Attending an upcoming wedding? Make your gift stand out with these three easy and unique ways to wrap it, whether it's a gift for the bride, groom or the happy couple.

A gift for her

For her, we suggest wrapping your gift as a clutch purse. It's something every woman can relate to

Creative Wedding Gift Wrapping: Clutch-style for Her

Supplies

Brown craft paper
Doily
Single earring or brooch
Ribbon
Glue

Directions

This is very simple, and inexpensive! Wrap your gift in brown craft paper or a solid colored paper. From there, wrap your doily around the top of the gift box, and glue it down. Secure with a ribbon and a single mismatched earring for the look of a vintage clutch!

A gift for him

For his gift, we suggest using a bowtie to wrap the present.

Creative Wedding Gift Wrapping: Bowtie for him

Supplies

Boxes
Gift wrap
Bowtie

Directions

If a clutch purse seemed simple, this is even easier! Wrap your gift box in a chic paper, and rather than a bow, finish the gift with a fun bowtie. Choose something that suits the man you're giving the gift to (pattern for a fun and fearless guy, and tailored for a sophisticated fellow). Then the wrapping becomes part of the present.

A gift for the happy couple

Wedding day gifts are always a challenge, so why not help the couple out with their honeymoon? A passport holder filled with the currency from the country they're travelling to is a unique alternative to a regular envelope.

Bow of vintage map or map of country they are travelling to

We put the currency of the country our couple will be visiting on their honeymoon into a sleek passport holder. From there, we secured it with travel-inspired ribbon and attached a bon-voyage gift tag.
