Last Minute Gift Wrap:

A Gift Wrapping Guide to Last Minute Wrap

The holidays are a busy time of year. Sometimes you are invited a last minute party, unexpected guests come over, or you are so busy you just don’t have time for wrapping. In this case, gift bags, pre-made bows, and gift boxes become a life saver.

We have some beautiful euro totes that are perfect for Christmas.  Adorable bags with bears and bags with other Christmas characters are a quick and easy solution to gift wrapping. Their festive prints are cheerful and fun. All you need to do is stuff the bag with white, colored, or printed tissue paper, then your package is complete! Got to love that! 

If you have a little extra time, you can use plain kraft or muslin bags to wrap gifts or favors. You can easily spruce these up with fancy gift tags or ornaments. Both of these materials work well with stamps too. Use Christmas stamps to give the bags a personal, one-of-a-kind touch.

Gift boxes require little to no effort as well. Colored and printed gable boxes are a super cute handled box that are easy to set up. These boxes are available in Christmas colors and prints, making them appropriate for the holidays. Just add a gift tag or card, and your package is complete!

Have trouble creating bows? Pull bows, pre-tied bows, and self-adhesive bows are the perfect solution for those who have trouble making that perfect bow or simply don’t have time to.

Gift Wrap for Shipping:Gift Wrapping Guide to Shipping Gifts

Shipping gifts to loved ones? Here are some unique ways you can package their gifts while still making them look great. 

Metallic bubble envelopes are colorful and cute! They sure beat traditional yellow, white and kraft envelopes for the holidays. Choose from red, green, silver, or gold envelopes to send smaller gifts through the mail.

Line your boxes with pretty metallic film sheets. Whether you are using tuck top mailing boxes or a traditional corrugated cartons to ship, you can use shiny metallic wrap as an alternative to tissue paper. While tissue paper is beautiful, metallic film sheets are an unexpected surprise.

Colored corrugated mailing boxes are a nice option as well. Because these boxes are colored on the outside, they already look like a present wrapped for the holidays. You may want to fill the box with tissue or shred, but you don’t have to wrap the gift inside, as the colored box takes away the need for a gift box or gift wrap.

Traditional Gift Wrap:Gift Wrapping Guide to Traditional Gift Wrap

You can’t go wrong with traditional gift wrap. This includes Christmas wrapping paper, apparel boxes, tissue, ribbon, and tape.

We have a large selection of Christmas wrapping paper at Paper Mart. Choose from many styles including Christmas trees, plaid, polka dots, Santa, and many more! While plaid, polka dots, and stripes are a more modern style of holiday gift wrap, they can still be purchased in festive colors that look just as “Christmas-y” as would reindeer gift wrap! However, the traditional wraps such as snowmen, penguins, snowflakes, and “Merry Christmas” still make great gift wrap too. 

The kids might be asking for new electronics or games, but apparel boxes work to package these items too. Keep these two piece boxes on hand for packaging everything from clothes, to electronics, to books and more! We have colored, white and kraft apparel boxes, so you are sure to find the right box for your gift wrap style.

Top your gift off with festive Christmas ribbon. Ribbon always ties a package together nicely. Choose from natural, satin, or sheer styles. We have a large selection of solid colored ribbon too. Solid color ribbons are nice because they can be used all year round, so if you have extra, no worries! We even carry bow genius bow makers! This tool helps to create full, fluffy bows. Lastly, don’t forget the tape and scissors! We even carry tape and scissors to help you wrap your gifts. 

With all of the tools and wrapping supplies available, we hope you could find this gift wrapping guide helpful and useful for the holiday season. Always feel free to reach out to our customer service team if you have any questions or need help placing an order. They are happy to help!
