Last Minute Christmas Decorating and Gift Wrapping Ideas


As we get down to the wire and Christmas is just over a week away, my friends and I are sharing some last-minute Christmas decorating and gift wrapping ideas with you to help you make your home warm and cozy for the coming holiday!

I love gift wrapping but sometimes the rush of the holiday season makes the process less joyful and more stressful than I would like. In order to simplify the process I have developed a way of wrapping my Christmas gifts that is simple and easy and makes every package beautiful!

My Christmas gift wrapping system includes choosing 3-4 wrapping papers in coordinating colors and using simple ribbon wraps rather than complicated bows to make packages beautiful and easy to wrap.

You can see all of the detail about how I created these pretty packages by clicking HERE.

I also created some beautifully wrapped gifts using metallic painted winter greenery and a pretty palette of colors. You can see that post by clicking HERE.

And for this festive Christmas wrapping, I used a combination of ribbon and decorative tape to create beautiful grids on each package. You can see all of the details HERE.

I hope you find some last minute Christmas decorating and gift wrapping ideas in these posts AND be sure to scroll down for a beautiful home tour with my friend Leslie as well as her Christmas home tour, plus some great tips for how to store seasonal decorations effectivly! So much inspo here!

Have a joyful day!
