Gift Wrapping Inspirations for Weddings and Baby Showers

Most women are pretty much in charge of what happens on their wedding day.  They’ve picked out everything to the smallest detail, with dreams of being a princess for the day and sharing the joy of that with friends and family.  To reflect that as a guest, an gift wrapped in elegance and care would show you understand the importance of this day.

Try out wrappings of delicate materials, carefully put together in a way that is dainty, elegant, and beautiful.  It would fit in at any wedding, and is very simply a piece of material tied together.

Also, try matching multiple gifts together while still giving them their own individual touch. Simple color schemes make the few uses of bold colors pop, but aren’t overdone to the point of distraction.  This is a wonderful design inspiration of showing how less can sometimes be more.

Be Crafty and Creative

Nothing says you care like the personal touch of creating your own wrapping design.  Using your own homemade arts and crafts to design something not only gives that personal touch of appreciation, but it’s fun as well!

You might try simple yarn by making it seem a much higher end quality material.  Not only has it turned out lovely, and it has a personal touch, but it is also less expensive than stuffing everything into a gift bag.

Design simple paper that is given a personal touch and a pop of bright color with something as simple as some cut out paper and a string. It makes the wrapping one of a kind!
