Since my last post on these 10 inspiring Christmas wreaths to make, sick days have taken over and it has been a daily struggle to stick to my December to-do list but I really wanted to show you these 10 beautiful Christmas gift wrapping which I’m sure you’ll find useful when you find yourself wrapping presents at the last minute.
I have also included my favourite gift labels and wrapping paper free to download.
I’m not a big fan of green, red or fancy Christmas gift wrapping. I like things to be simple and beautiful so I always circle back towards the same style mixing plain white paper, kraft paper, gift labels featuring lovely black & white typography, some black twine or even just some simple white string bought from the supermarket. I always have a stock of white or brown tie on travel labels, which are easy to find at any stationery shops, post offices and craft shops or on Amazon.
Last year, I used these gorgeous hand lettering gift tags from Almost Perfect. They are still my favourites but I came across a few more which are also very pretty and all available to download or print for free:
- printable christmas gifts by Gather & Feast,
- chalkboard gift tags to print on black paper,
- these gift tag stickers (first image)
- and these really gorgeous thank you cards from the pretty blog (it might be this year’s winner in our home!)
Like these inspiring wreaths, I think nature has a lot to offer to create the most stylish and simple gift wrapping decorations. Simply adding a bit of pine tree or eucalyptus will transform any plain paper but I suggest adding them at the last minute to stop them from dying.

Brown kraft paper is very easy to find and incredibly cheap. We used to wrap our customers gift orders in white kraft paper with our logo embossed, when I was running the shop. The white version is more expensive but it looks incredibly stylish with black twine.Sources: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
And then, I added some of the prettiest gift labels I could find for you because I really think they can make or break gift-wrapping. It’s the final detail, the cherry on the cake and I’m sure you are going to love these which are also free to print (except the bottom left one).Sources: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4
Which one do you prefer?
