Unique Holiday Wrapping Paper Right in Your Home!

Oh no! Did you forget to grab wrapping paper at the store?

Sometimes when you’re wrapping gifts, it’s fun to use wrapping paper that actually isn’t “technically” wrapping paper! If you’re in a hurry, want to be creative or simply just forgot to pick up wrapping paper at the store, there are always great things around your home that can be used instead.

Can’t think of any ideas? Don’t worry, here are some of our favorite gift wrapping ideas.

Old Maps

Haven’t been using the maps in your car? Maps make great wrapping paper. Maybe there is a special city that reminds you of the person you’re gifting? Call it out when you’re wrapping your gift to make it even more special!

Cookbook Recipes

Many of us have someone among our family and friends that absolutely loves to cook. How fun would it be to give them a gift completely wrapped in recipes from your favorite cookbooks? Careful – they may be so busy reading the recipes that they forget to open the gift.

Plain White Paper

Who says your wrapping needs to be colorful? For kids, the fun might be making their own wrapping paper. Wrap their gift in all white paper and ask them to create their own wrapping paper before opening their gift! Attach crayons to make it fun and easy for them to do!

Brown Bags

Reuse, Recycle! Most likely you’re doing some shopping at grocery stores during the holidays. Ask for paper instead of plastic and use those bags as your wrapping paper. Want to add a personal touch? Use a sharpie to draw your bows and gift tags instead of using real ones!Brown Bag Wrapping Paper
