5 holiday wrapping themes

Holiday Wrapping Themes | dotted design One of my favorite visual aspects of gift giving is deciding my wrapping theme for the year. Yes, I realize it is torn off seconds after it’s received, but I love the design aspect of pairing the paper, tags, and ribbon. Plus, I love seeing all my wrapped creations sitting under our tree.

I can only guess that besides from my love of design, this love of wrapping paper stems from the fact that every year Santa would leave my sister’s and my gifts in our own, personalized paper. We would be almost as excited to see what our paper would be as we were for our gifts. {Thanks, Mom!}

What is your holiday style? Do you love the traditional red and green scheme? Or do you try to mix it up based on what you’re into that year? Here are a few of my favorite ideas...though my final decision is yet to come.

1. whimsical: spearmint paper |  silver satin ribbon
2. modern & playful: gold foil dots paper | clover herringbone ribbon
3. casual chic: blackberry paper | red velvet ribbon
4. a little luxury: mint paper | black and white ribbon
5. clean & cheery:  white paper | gingham ribbon
