Gift wrapping isn’t difficult. It only requires a bit of thought and a little time. Let’s face it though, there is just something so decadent about getting a beautifully wrapped gift. Somehow it speaks to the giver wanting you to feel special.
We’ve gathered together some of our favourite examples. The common theme you’ll find in each? All types and colours of luxurious ribbon.

Gift wrapping with pink and white ribbon in different textures and widths creates a woven pattern on one corner. This takes a little bit of time, but the end result is undeniably beautiful.

Kraft paper is used to wrap a variety of gifts with a wide band of white satin ribbon. A black and white photo is added to complete the look. This really does allow you to personalize each gift using simple elements.
Is there anything more luxurious than black velvet? You can easily diy a labels like the ones shown below. Add a bit of black and white striped baker’s twine and you have an eye-catching gift for someone extra special.

I love seeing how themed gift wrap comes together. Imagine these instructions given to guests for a baby shower or even a wedding shower. “Gifts wrapped in a blue or pink vintage romance theme would be appreciated”.

This gift is definitely a favourite example of a beautiful wrapped gift! Anemones are amazing in any form and these paper ones are no exception. The blush gift wrap and wide satin ribbon tie then entire theme together. Stunning!

There seems to be a bit of a black and white theme going on here, but how can possible resist the results? This polka dotted paper is finished with a hand printed black tag and a strip of black bias tape ironed open.

This gift begins with a gorgeous piece of wrapping paper. Using that as the inspiration, it was topped off with silk hydrangea, a bright red cardinal and a big satin bow.
