I have most of my gifts wrapping including E's Christmas presents from us.
For her gifts, I used the reversible paper from Sugar Paper.
I added some shatterproof ornaments from Target and burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby.
So cute and simple, right?
We buy for several children and I went for more simple wrap on their gifts. My initial plan was for kraft paper boxes and ribbons only. I have always been the person that wraps their gifts without ever giving a thought to the fact that anyone, let alone a child, would ever have to open them. I'm the one that wraps a gift in such a way that you have to go get the scissors to get into it. So I decided easy to open and simple was my tactic this year.
For the girls, I used kraft paper gable boxes, curly ribbon and shatterproof ornaments. I had a hard time getting regular wired or grosgrain ribbon around the wide handles so I picked up some curly ribbon at Target.
Diary from PB Kids.
I really hate curly ribbon in general but these colors were just so cute and I think curly ribbon can be fun for the kids.
Making sure the gifts were easy to open, I only looped the ribbon around on side of the top of the gable box so the ribbon will stay attached when they open it. Also I thought they fact they could carry it around was really cute.
Some crazy ribbon, a cute ornament and we are done.
I struggle with making curly ribbon cute but I think crazy can be fun for kids.
For a sweet baby boy in my life, I went even more simple.
The tiny car rattle from Pottery Barn is a perfect cute little gift. I used shred for the bottom of the box.
I think just tied it with twine and one of E's gift tags and voila. Merry Christmas.
What is your favorite gift wrap for kids? Do you go crazy with Santas and Reindeers or keep it super simple?
Last year, E was only 7 months old at Christmas so I wrapped everything in tissue paper so she could tear it and that worked perfectly.
