Kid-Friendly, Fun Gift Wrap Ideas

  I can’t tell you HOW excited I am to be sharing three wrapping ideas with you this week! I don’t think I’ve blogged wrapping inspiration since the first year of blogging when I personalized wrapping for a few of my favorite bloggers. I still love some of those ideas, especially the woven ribbon for Will at Bright Bazaar, and fringed for Jordan Ferney at Oh Happy Day. Oh, those were the good ol’blogging days. Anyone been around that long and remember that post?

Anywhoooo….today’s gift wrap inspiration is all about simple and kids. I don’t favor overly “themed” wrapping paper, and usually choose to take things in a more natural and subtly Winter/Christmas direction. I wanted these gifts to be appropriate for any fun-loving person, and especially kids. These gift wrap ideas are also super fun for kids to HELP with, not only receive.

I think they key to wrapping well is choosing a color palette and sticking to it. For this set of gifts, I went with primarily white, black, red, and gold. Just three different wrapping papers, two different strings, a ribbon, and a few simple decorations. I’m sharing 5 different (but coordinating) gift wrap looks today, and you could probably create about 1000 different combinations.

Here are more details on each, with links for sources:

  1. Brown kraft paper with gold polka dots. This paper is from Target, one of my favorite sources for wrapping paper, especially at Christmastime! One of my must-have supplies in my wrapping arsenal is cotton kitchen twine. It’s so versatile, and you can usually find large quantities at very affordable prices (and it’s even at the grocery store)! And this way of attaching string is great for kids because it doesn’t take much coordination. Simply tape one end to the bottom of the package, wind around and around until you’re satisfied, and then tape second end to bottom of package. Voila!
  2. Simple white kraft paper with cotton kitchen twine, and an adorable handmade-looking mushroom ornament (from IKEA). I love using reusable decorations on my packages, whether it’s something you can eat, use for decorating, or easily use for another gift.
  3. White kraft paper with jingle bells. Zoe designed this wrapping paper, and it’s my favorite. I wanted her to draw a design on wrapping paper, and we tried candy canes, houses, and stars, but in the end, her simple Christmas tree was just so darling, we decided to do just trees! She used a thick sharpie, and using a pencil I made tiny dots for her to draw her trees on top of, in order to spread them out (she originally started drawing them in straight lines). And then, we just strung a few jingle bells on red wool yarn and wrapped it around the gift.
  4. White and gold polka dot paper, from Target. Add a simple bow with cotton kitchen twine and a sprig of fresh pine. Simple, coordinating, and perfect.
  5. White kraft paper with velvet. I bought this big pack of velvet ribbon off of Amazon, and we’ve been using it for EVERYTHING. The pieces are relatively short, though. Here is another option for longer 10-yard rolls in a couple of color options.

And that’s it for today’s wrapping inspiration, folks! Hope you love it!
