Christmas Gift Wrapping For Adults – The Chicest Paper, sticky tape, twine plus Lanvin holiday cards!

LANVIN-CHRISTMAS-CARDS

Tis the season to be jolly!

I’m the type of person who gets a big kick out of presenting friends and family with gifts that I know they will love.

I’m also one of those last-minute people, however, who heads out to Westfield two days before the 25th of December to buy a trolly full of gifts – you see I embrace that manic time, in fact I actually find it fun and it’s something I’ve been told I excel at.

One thing I don’t leave to the last minute, though, is buying my wrapping bits and bobs for Christmas presents.

I’m a crafty kind of gal, and I honestly believe the way you dress a gift lifts the level of excitement for the receiver when they carefully open up the paper.

Jamie Oliver is famous for describing that half the enjoyment of devouring a dish is eating it with your eyes first – I believe this is true with presents as well!

Below are four items everyone needs in order to wrap a gift well this holiday season:

1) Trendy paper that is thick and high quality

2) Gift cards that are worth treasuring

3) A variety of ribbon or twine to add extra embellishment

4) Sticky tape to seal down all the corners of your paper – and why not let it be cute while you’re at it?

Here are the four gift-wrapping pieces that made me go gaga this Christmas:
