I'm Amanda and I’m passionate about creating a well loved and well lived in home for my family and I I'd love to help you do the same!
I’ve always lamented how much wrapping paper gets wasted at Christmas time, so this year I came up with some gift wrap tips for minimalists on how to wrap gifts without wrapping paper!
Estimated reading time: 4 minutes
This year I bought simple white paper boxes and bags and embellished them with ribbon, string, customized gift tags and snippets of greenery or charms! The plain boxes and gift bags can be re-used each year unlike paper, which ends up shredded!
SHOP THE POST
I used bits of ribbon and string that I already had on hand as well as leftover mini brass bells from making garlands!
These cute little custom gift tags were created by Leah from Little Lief Creative. You could make name tags for each member of the family that could be reused year after year!
You could also add photos or custom art to your boxes and gift bags! Here I’ve used a clothespin to attach a custom print! It looks pretty and doubles as a second gift!
Depending on the gift, use any soft material item like tea towels, sponge cloths, scarves, baby blankets etc… to wrap your present!
These cute Christmas themed tea towels from TENandCO. would be perfect!
This year I made these cute gingerbread house gift boxes!

Use paper that you already have lying around the house! Old sheet music, kids art, newspaper, or calendar pages can all make pretty gift wrap!
I hope you’ve enjoyed these tips on how to wrap gifts without wrapping paper!
