Holiday Gift Wrapping Tips and Techniques

We partnered with Mariah of Giggles Galore. Read how she created stunning, one-of-a-kind holiday packages for her loved ones using expert Christmas gift wrapping ideas and supplies from Tuesday Morning.

You’ve picked out the perfect presents for everyone on your list and now it’s time to put them under the tree. Wrap your gifts with a little extra holiday cheer and impress everyone on your Christmas list this year. A beautifully wrapped gift can show that special someone just how much you really care. I love pretty wrapped packages. For me getting a beautifully wrapped package is a gift in itself! You too can achieve those perfect one-of-a-kind Christmas packages with these holiday gift wrapping tips and techniques.

The key to perfectly wrapped, pretty packages is interesting paper, multiple layers, contrasting textures, all tied up with a pretty bow.

After you’ve spent all the time and money to get the perfect gift, don’t you want the outside to be as perfect as what is on the inside too? The good news is you don’t have to break the bank to create pretty packages. Head to your local Tuesday morning to purchase wrapping paper and embellishments to get started on these Christmas gift wrapping ideas.

I like to stick with a theme when it comes to the wrapped presents under my tree. I usually pick a color that coordinates with my Christmas tree theme to make everything extra special. So I picked out sparkly wrapping paper that would match my glam metallic farmhouse inspired Christmas tree. I love that you can get great quality wrapping paper at Tuesday Morning for much less than you can find it elsewhere. The grid lines on the back of the paper help you measure and cut, so you don’t waste paper trying to figure out how much you need.

Once you’ve wrapped your package with the pretty paper it’s time to add a little extra pizzazz. You can find a great selection of fancy ribbon, gift tags and more to make your packages stand out. I love including a small ornament or trinket that the recipient can keep and treasure year after year. Or fill a handmade bag with their favorite treat and attach it to the front for another fun and creative way to make those packages pretty!

You don’t have to limit yourself to just wrapping paper and bows when it comes to pretty packages.  I found this beautiful, warm and fuzzy scarf and knew my sister would love it.  I wrapped her gift in plain white paper, wrapped the scarf around the package, tied a sparkly ribbon on top of the scarf, added a glam ornament and now she has a gift within a gift!

Pick up a few baskets or boxes and use those to package presents. This is also great if you are traveling to relatives houses during Christmas. You can pile up all the gifts you need to take with you to make it easier to transport. I found these great boxes with a chalkboard front and added a fun hand-lettered Christmas message to the front with chalk. I love that this gift can also double as practical storage once the holidays are over.

The holidays mean lots of parties and entertaining, don’t forget to take something for the hostess. I found lots of great wine bottle bags that I can slip over my favorite bottle for a quick, easy and inexpensive gift. Add a cute ornament to the front and your hostess gift is sure to standout among the crowd!

My favorite Tuesday Morning department: It’s impossible to pick a favorite, but I always gravitate to the Dining & Kitchen and Holiday & Party sections first. I love entertaining and I’m always on the hunt for colorful and unique dishes. And I may have a small obsession with collection cake stands and paper straws!

A little about me: I have been married to my best friend for 14 years, and I’m the lucky mom to our 9 year old daughter and 7 year old twins. I have a passion for celebrating and have been entertaining and throwing parties since I was a freshman in high school. I believe that the little details are what set ordinary events apart from extraordinary events, even in every day life! When I’m not planning parties or creating craft projects for Giggles Galore you can find me spending time doing what I love, traveling, cooking, eating Mexican food and having impromptu dance parties with my kids!

What I love to write about: I have fond memories of traditions, celebrations and homemade gifts from my childhood. My mother was a creative soul who thrived on sharing her passion and talent with others. Fast forward a few years and now I love sharing updated versions of those special memories. I created Giggles Galore to inspire families to celebrate life’s little moments with creative, budget friendly ideas. I love to write about and share tutorials for kids crafts, DIY projects, recipes and of course, my favorite parties! No matter what I’m writing about, one thing is certain, you will find lots of tips and hints for creating memorable occasions with the most important people in your life.

    I agree with you – the presentation on the outside should be as beautiful & special as the gift inside & I also like to coordinate my wrapping w/my trees! I love a lot of Shabby Chic pastel palette is loved by all

    Please consider making your sales begin on Tuesday mornings….they begin on Sundays now when I am in church as I’m sure many others are. Because of that, those who are in worship miss out on those deals in which there are only a few items in stock. Tuesday Morning is my very favorite store and I have purchased many, many items over the years. I love how well organized, neat, and sparkling clean the stores are now! My granddaughters have loved going with me, starting when they were just toddlers…now in their teens. Thank you. Elizabeth Ockerman
