On the 1st day of Christmas...


To kick off the Christmas holiday, we decided to do 12 posts for the 12 days of Christmas featuring some of our favorite Christmas ideas. To begin the 1st day, I wanted to share some great wrapping gift ideas.

Anything pretty on top makes it extra special.

Give a little something extra with a gift card and tie it with luxurious velvet. The yellow color is divine!

Fabric and string makes a yummy treat cozy and inviting.

I loved this idea when I saw it. Each rain boot is stuffed with presents and goodies. You could even do this in place of stockings.

With labels like these, people will fight over which gift is theirs.

Speaking of pretty little gifts, its drawing time! I just wanted to say thank you for all those people who commented-- I always love to hear that my posts aren't too horrible :)

Me and Megan had a lot of fun packaging these-- that is usually my favorite part! We made pom-poms for the top (this tutorial helped) and included a Christmas Wendy Addison ornament for some glitter (you can't have too much).
