It’s that busy time of the year when we’re all scrambling to buy the perfect gift and then the stressful part (in my opinion) of wrapping the gifts. I’m always in awe of those perfectly matching gifts under trees that are gorgeous. I’ve just never been that gal. 😂 If I do have matching wrapping paper, it’s because I’m using brown kraft paper. Which I absolutely love to use.
To help you with all your gift wrapping this season, I ‘m going to share 10 easy, but beautiful gift topper ideas to give your gifts just a little something extra. And they’re all very affordable (a big plus in my books). So, let’s get to it.
Ribbons are the obvious choice, I’d say. There are so many choices! I gravitate towards velvets…I love the texture. I found some amazing velvet frayed ribbon in the fabric section at Hobby Lobby. It’s my favorite!
I love this one! My favorite items to use are greenery, pinecones, dried oranges, faux cranberries, holly. You can use ribbon or twine in combination with these items. I’m using faux greenery, but you definitely could use remnants of your real winter greens.
Such a fun option to elevate your gifts! They come in so many different sizes. You can double up or use just a single bell. You can use in combo with natural elements, and of course, ribbon.
Instead of ribbon, you can use a contrasting or coordinating paper. Wrap you gift and use a strip of paper like a belt for your gift. You can use a very small strip or use a wide section of paper. Add other elements like pretty ribbons and natural elements as well.
I really wanted a tiny sweater for my gifts, but I couldn’t find one. I did find a cute Santa suit and some knit ornaments. You could also do those cute DIY tiny stocking hats as a gift topper. Mittens (store bought or handmade) would also look so cute as gift toppers.
Have you ever checked out all the mini ornaments that are available? There are so many! I found some super cute mini nutcracker ornaments at Walmart. I added mini ball ornaments as well. You could add a string on mini ball ornaments across your entire gift for a statement. You can also use full sized ornaments…I used one singe ball ornament with ribbon for a simple look.
I think a really cute idea would be to use monograms on gifts to differentiate between each family member. So instead of using gift tags, you could just use a monogram for each gift. I did that one year…I used my Cricut to cut out monograms for each gift. You could use different fonts, as well. I paired a wood monogram with greenery and ribbon with this beautiful plaid paper.
It’s Christmas, so ya need some bling, some glitter! I swear, it takes a month or so to stop finding glitter after all the Christmas decorations are down. Is your house like that? It just makes sense to use glittery, sparkly things on Christmas gifts! I used a glittery pick, a glitter pinecone, a candy cane, and a small piece of sparkly garland on my gifts.

I love this idea! You could even use your Christmas card. I used some downloaded art and ribbon on brown paper for a very simple…kind of elegant, look.
Another classic option. And these days, candy canes come in all different colors too! I like the full-size candy canes because the wrapper is a cleaner look to me. The mini candy canes have a bulkier wrapper…It’s just personal preference, in my opinion. I even found candy cane wrapping paper at Target. It’s so cute!
If you were inspired just a little, I will consider this post a success! I’m always looking for ways to elevate my gift presentations. And if it’s affordable, that is an even bigger plus. My question is: do you enjoy wrapping gifts? I have a confession: I do not. 😆😆 I can never get the corners to look good. Let me know in the comments! You know I love to hear from you.
Until next time Treasure Hunters!
