Wrapping presents, can be a chore, but sometimes getting creative with your gift wrap can do wonders to revolutionise your Christmas decor. Below are seven of my favourite luxury gift wraps from various stockists - decorate with tags, ribbons and pretty embellishments to brighten up the space beneath your tree!
A bit lost on how to give your wrapped presents a little extra Christmas sparkle? Try out some ideas from my favourite gift wrapping videos by Anne or Shine, M&S and Michelle Phan, or just try and think out of the box - try gluing colourful buttons onto the paper, or using natural resources like twigs and holly!
