Ideas for Presenting Christmas Gifts

Create Inviting Christmas Gifts by Your Choice of Packaging

This Christmas you might want to consider alternative ways to wrap your Christmas gifts. Your friends and family are sure to love the creative and clever gift wrapping suggestions below. The way you present your Christmas gifts will make a big impression on your friends and family.

They’re Not Just For Paint

One great way to wrap Christmas gifts is to use a new plain paint can. These silver paint cans can be found at home improvement stores, and they are a great way to wrap gifts for tweens or teens. If you plan to buy your niece makeup, nail polish, and hair accessories, you can display them in a silver paint can and decorate the outside of the can with stickers.

Hefty, Ziplock and Glad Are Your Holiday Friends

If you plan to give your homemade Christmas cookies as gifts, you can display them in the decorative Christmas baggies that Ziploc and Hefty come out with every year. You can also recycle old oatmeal containers and decorate them with wrapping paper. Christmas cookies make great Christmas gifts, by the way.

Be Creative

One easy way to create pretty Christmas gifts yet be able to reuse the packaging is to wrap the lid and box separately. Use a high quality wrapping paper and wrap the lid and box as precisely as possible. Put your present in the box, place the lid on top, and tie up the present with a beautiful ribbon and a bow. Your gift recipient can then reuse the box next year.

You can extend your craftiness to not only the way you wrap the gift but the way you present it as well. Don’t leave a gift empty either. If you are giving your cousin (who has a long commute to work) a soft-sided cooler, make sure you fill up the cooler with snacks and drinks. If you buy a new purse for you mom, fill it with a pack of mints, small bottle of hand sanitizer, a pack of tissues, and other purse essentials. If you buy some new CDs for your brother, buy a CD-carrying case to store them in. It is the attention to detail that makes a good impression on your gift recipient.

Keep in mind the above tips when giving Christmas gifts this holiday season.
