Keep your colours cohesive

One of the easiest ways to make sure your gifts always look delightful, is by sticking to a colour palette. If your wrapping paper, ribbon, and gift tags all follow the same colour scheme, then every single gift you wrap will always look amazing. You could stick to a traditional Christmas colour palette, pairing bright reds with dark greens and crisp whites. However, if you’d prefer to use a more unconventional colour palette, why not pair pastel pink ribbons with native floral wrapping paper? Get creative with your colours to really make your presents pop!

Use more than one ribbon

Wrapping your gifts with a ribbon is a quick way to make them look extremely elegant, but have you ever thought about layering your ribbons? Using two ribbons within the same colour scheme for your gifts will not only make them look aesthetically pleasing, but it’ll also add texture to your gift wrapping and ultimately, make it more exciting to find under the Christmas tree! Tie your first ribbon around your gift, but before you create your bow, tie a small piece of a second coloured ribbon to your first ribbon, and then use the longer ends of your first ribbon to create your bow — it’s as simple as that!

Add a decorative element

There are so many fun and festive gift tags available here on Stockland Marketplace that’ll tie in with your aesthetically pleasing gifts perfectly. Whether you’re looking for more traditional tags or tags that feature intricate artwork, adding an ornamental gift tag will definitely ensure your gifts look incredibly chic. If you’d like to add another ornamental piece to your gifts, venture out into your garden and use flowers and sprigs to give your gifts a more rustic feel.

Seal your present with wax

No one likes their ribbon slipping once they’ve wrapped it around their presents, so to keep it in place, instead of sticking it down with tape why not seal it with wax? People have been sealing their cards, letters, and invitations with wax for centuries now not just because it looks exquisite, but also because wax is a lot stronger than tape. So, to make sure all the adornments you’ve placed on your gift stay in place, seal it with a colourful wax and a stamp with an intricate design to really elevate them.
