I asked my 13 year old daughter Ruby to share a gift wrap idea post with us. She has her own Esty shop called Ruby by the Sea, and is an amazing photographer (she takes most of my product photos) Thanks for sharing Ruby!
Since I was 7 years old I've enjoyed giving Christmas presents to my family. This is the first year I'll have enough money to give real gifts (as in not a set of 30 self-made finger knitted necklaces!), and I would really love to have those real gifts packaged pretty.
Here are 10 Christmas wrapping ideas that I hope inspire you too.
Simple brown paper decorated with a cute stamp!
Below are two stamps I love on Etsy...
How about re-using the old road maps you haven't needed since Google Maps came around?
Cute & simple. I love how the brown paper and twine make the antlers pop! I saw an antler stamp at the craft store the other day... might have to invest in that! (found via We Lived Happily Ever After)
I will definitely have to try this! Feathers and stamped brown tags.
Brown paper with white polka dots, twine, and a doily. Isn't this just beautiful?!( Found via Pinterest.)

Simple white paper and string and a sprig of rosemary! This would be pretty with any greenery... perhaps eucalyptus?
A colorful assortment trims.
So now you need a gift tag? 1) cut out a little pear shape from a scrap of fabric and glue it to a square of brown paper 2) Make the scrap of fabric look like a little bird by adding details with a fine tipped black pen. Found here.

Quite a few of these ideas are featuring brown paper. If you don't have any on hand, I find that an inside out paper grocery bag works great!
Did you try any of these packaging ideas? I'd love to see what you came up with!
