4 CREATIVE GIFT WRAPPING IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS

I love wrapping presents and I promise I’m not just saying that! I’ve always had a tradition, where I wrap all my presents on Christmas eve, sat by the tree with a classic crimbo movie and a hot choccy in my fave mug!! It really gets me in the spirit and for me that is when Christmas really begins. One thing I’m pretty hot on when it comes to gift giving is wrapping paper, I love to get creative at Christmas and make the gift look just exciting before it’s opened. The key is make sure the design isn’t difficult and can be done in just a few minutes, so with that in mind we collaborated with AO.com to create 4 alternative ways to jazz up your presents this Christmas.
