For the fashionistas on your list, nothing short of stylish will do. Think outside the gift box to ensure that yours is the present they reach for first. Read on for wrapping tips so Instagram-friendly, they won’t even mind if the package is empty.
Belt It Up
Instead of using ribbon, accent a wrapped package with an on-trend belt, which also doubles as a bonus gift. Textiles like grosgrain and canvas are easiest to work with. For a truly standout wrap job (and a healthy dose of contrast), go for one with buttery leather accents and a buckle for a metallic touch.
Bundle It with a Scarf
Save paper and wrap a box in a super-soft scarf instead. Tuck a sprig of holly or a decorative branch of pinecones into the folds and secure with a pin. Guaranteed to wow (and warm).
For a tasteful play on texture and dimension, tie your gift with a bow and fasten it with a brooch. Opt for one in a richly patterned fabric like we did, or for a vintage-lover, channel old-school elegance with a glittering, jewelry-inspired piece.
