Do you love wrapping gifts? These days there is such a huge selection of gift wrap, gift bags and gift boxes to choose from, that you can really go to town with your gift wrapping and create a truly beautiful looking wrapped gift. How many gifts do you buy during a year? Most of us have birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, anniversary presents, baby shower gifts, wedding presents, engagement gifts and romantic tokens for Valentine’s Day to wrap up, and each occasion calls for its own unique styles and colours of gift wrapping. For Christmas gift wrapping you can choose brightly coloured wrapping papers with the traditional Santas, snowmen, and reindeer on them all tied up with big red velvet bows, or have a theme for Christmas that incorporates tasteful neutral or metallic colours. Wrapping a wedding gift is all about white, silver and palest pink wrapping paper, light as air gauze ribbons and lots of beautiful flowers. Birthday gifts can be a bit more personal to wrap and you can match the style of gift wrap to the personality of your loved one or friend. Of course, it is when you are wrapping kids’ presents that you can have the most fun, and if they have a favourite character, like Hello Kitty or a Disney Princess, you will most certainly be able to find gift bags and gift wrap with these characters on. If you have kids and take them to lots of parties or have a wide circle of family and friends to buy gifts for, you can also buy excellent sets containing all the gift wrap, tissue, ribbon and bows that you will need. To keep all of your unused gift wrapping stuff together neatly in one place, you can buy really useful gift wrap organizers, with separate compartments for all your spare wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows. And if you are really struggling for inspiration when it comes to wrapping your gifts, or do not feel confident in your wrapping skills, there as some great books available that give great gift wrapping ideas and show you the wrapping techniques that will get you stunning results.

Some gifts are so special or fragile that they need to be presented in a gift box. If you buy a special gift of jewelry, it makes the gift even more exceptional if you buy a pretty gift box to put it in. Also if you like to make homemade candy, pastries or cakes to give as gifts, you can buy white gift boxes in lots of different sizes and then add a splash of colour with a big bow or a branch of artificial flowers. Something which is very popular these days is the giving out of favors at weddings or big parties, and you will find that you can buy lots of different cute favor boxes online, which are ideal to put those sugared almonds or trinkets in.
Pink, red, blue, yellow, green, patterned, plain, floral, cartoon characters, metallic, balloons, Happy Birthday – you can buy so many different designs of gift wrapping paper that you are truly spoiled for choice. I always like to keep a few rolls of fairly neutral gift wrap at home, just so that I have something to use when I have to buy gifts unexpectedly or at short notice. Of course, if you are splashing out on a really expensive present for someone special, you can buy single sheets of luxury wrapping paper. If you buy your gift wrap online, you can choose any size of paper, different combinations of numbers of sheets, a single roll or multiple rolls of wrapping paper. And there is an added bonus to buying online, as if you are planning to buy lots of wrapping paper for an occasion like Christmas, then you do not have to carry it all back from the store as it will be delivered straight to your door!
Gift bags have been really gaining in popularity in recent years, probably because they combine attractiveness with convenience. All you need to do is choose your gift bag and pop your present inside. Gift bags are really handy if you are taking a gift to a party in a restaurant or someone’s house, as they are easy to carry and then stack with all the other gifts. Gift bags usually have gift tags already attached to them, which is handy, and if you need to, you can wrap your gift in tissue paper to keep it safe from damage. Gift bottles come in all different sizes, shapes and colours, so you should have no problem in finding the best gift bag for to fit your present in. Gift bags are also really useful if you are buying bottles of wine or champagne as gifts, as you can buy gift bags that have been specially designed to carry bottles.
Ribbons, Bows and Tissue Paper
Of course, what will put the perfect finishing touches to any wrapped gift are the little extras like a ribbon, a pretty bow or even some artificial flowers. You can buy rolls and lengths of ribbon online, in a veritable rainbow of colours and, if you like to keep a stock of ribbon in the house, you can even buy sets of gift wrapping ribbon in different colours. If your wrapping skills don’t run to tying your own ribbon bows, then you can buy packs of gift bows that you can easily stick onto your present to make it look even more attractive. These gift bows come in lots of different colours and sizes, and you can also buy striking metallic ribbon bows that are especially popular at Christmas. One of the most useful things to keep a stock of for your gift wrapping needs is tissue paper. Tissue paper is really good for wrapping around fragile gifts to keep them safe, or for lining a gift bag, or even to be used instead of wrapping paper. You can either buy your tissue paper in single colours or in packs of different coloured tissue paper.
So unleash your inner creative genius next time that you have a gift to wrap, by buying wonderful gift wrapping paper, gift bags, gift boxes, ribbons, bows and tissue paper online. Have fun and amaze your loved ones and friends when they see how beautifully wrapped their gifts are!
