Every year I search high and low for Christmas gift wrapping ideas. Then I hit the stores and search high and low for wrap and cards that fit in with the theme I’ve chosen. Sometimes, things don’t always go according to plan, or I can’t find the exact ones I want.
This year, however, thanks to the genius that is Rachel Kennedy Designs, I’m rocking it out Shibori style – and I couldn’t be happier!
I’m doubly excited by Rachel’s new festive wrapping paper and cards because my Christmas tree theme is blue and white. Her new range – which I’ve snapped for you in this post – is going to team with the theme perfectly, while tapping into the Shibori interiors trend that’s dominating home design right now (see my latest post on Shibori interiors here).
Each year I do like to mix up my theme and change up the colours, but as I mentioned on the blog recently, I’m saving to buy a house, so I’m trying to be a bit tighter with my cash and stick with last year’s look, which ended up being a bit of a Frozen theme (and now that I’ve typed this, I have the ‘Let it Goooo’ song stuck in my head. Please make it stop).
While I’m head over heels for the blue, white and gold-foil colour story of this festive collection, fear not if your Christmas theme is different. There are other divine styles in the range, with a whole host of gift tags and twine to go with.
I’ve said in previous posts on the blog that I think the wrapping and gift card you give is just as important (if not moreso) than the actual gift itself. I still completely stand by that claim. I think when something is beautifully wrapped and presented, it takes mere gift giving and turns it into a true moment – for both the giver and the receiver.
You’ll never find me handing over a poorly wrapped gift. If you do… alert the authorities because something’s gone horrible wrong and I’ll need medical attention as soon as possible.
