Girl talk, how do you decorate your Christmas gifts? Do you do special packaging with ribbons, pine cones, bells, ect... Looking for new ideas to spruce my dreary gifts up.

Lateyy I have been into foil wrapping...I always love lots of curling ribbon...and then I add little touches for special gifts..like on kids..a small toy for the name tag or a metal tree ornament works well to...The dollar store always has all kinds of neat little things that you can use to decorate a package...

Wow, I never thought to use toys are a package decoration. I have over 20 nieces and nephews all having kids. Do you mind if I use your idea for the baby shower? Thanks for the great ideas!

On the other extreme of this one, I used to know this lady whose idea of a "christmas package was NOT wrapping gifts. Her idea of a wrapped gift was giving it in the shopping back she walked out of the store with. I actually stole this idea, & took it a step further, that is, if the bag was not labeled with the store name. This one store used these bright-red plastic bags. I just placed the item in the bag, twisted it against the item, & then turned the bag upside down. Then I tied the two handles together, & it was a wrapped gift that even came with a bow-tie. It sure saves on spending extra for wrapping paper & tape.

As a man, I take the easy way out and use gift bags. Whoever invented gift bags is my hero. It makes my gift wrapping go fast!

I like Christmas gifts to be wrapped in good shiny color papers. Red ribbion is one of my favorite in wrapping gifts. I also like the bells to be puting in the Christmas gifts while wrapping them. Lots of small cards are available, which we can stuck in the wrapper of the Christmas gifts. Well I think everyone likes to have good wrapped Christmas gifts. There are also small red sponges of hearts shapes available here that we can stuck on the Christmas gifts.
