When I wrap a Christmas gift,
I try to keep the recipient in mind
to customize it . . . to make it special just for them.
Or to incorporate it into my decor. You may find someone’s gift
not under a tree, but most likely on a bench or table in the house.
You may find it outdoors too, as they step up to the door,
only to find the packages are for them.
Such a fun way to welcome friends and family.
I found this chalkboard ribbon at one of my favorite garden centers.
Plan on using this ribbon in many ways for the holidays.
I found this great red and black checked paper at HomeGoods.
It came in a package of three different patterns the red and black check, a plaid,
and a my favorite, a houndstooth design.
Now enter the foyer . . .
Where a fun package with leopard ribbon sits on the foyer chair.
As I stated previously, I love to customize my wrapping to the recipient.
A vintage Borden’s Cheese box filled with gifts.
Perhaps they worked for Borden’s or a relative?
I love that I can incorporate a gift for someone into my decor.
It goes well with my existing vintage Borden’s Condensed Milk crate.
Speaking of customizing a gift . . .
How about wrapping it in a vintage monogrammed tea towel?
The top of the towel is strategically placed at the bottom of the box so that the tag can be neatly tucked in.
I used safety pins in lieu of tape.
The ribbon disguises the pins.
I love to use ribbon in many ways other than just tieing a bow.
I used three different ribbons to wrap the package in a basket weave pattern.
Using the chalkboard ribbon for the recipients’ monogram.
I attached a pretty silver ornament at the top of the package.
Just the perfect bling.
Gifts wrapped and Christmas decor/vignette all in one!
A pretty little gift for our guests.
Waits for them in the chair.
