How to Holiday

The Prettiest Wrapping Paper That's Almost Better Than the Gift Itself

Your presents will be dressed to impress this Christmas.

Call us crazy if you'd like, but while shopping for gifts during the holiday season can be equal parts fun and stressful (unless, of course, you know exactly where to look), wrapping the presents we've spent weeks hunting down is as close as holiday prep gets to being pure unadultered joy. 

So in that spirit of celebration — both of the holidays themselves and of being done with our holiday shopping — we hunted down seven new wrapping paper designs, plus labels, ribbons, and bows that'll ensure your gifts are dressed to impress. They'll look so good wrapped up, the recipients won't even want to open them!

House-Print Paper + Chalkboard Labels

What better way to wrap houseware gifts than in pretty Target-exclusive paper by Magnolia (the decor label fronted by husband-and-wife reno team Chip and Joanna Gaines)? Make sure your giftee knows who’s responsible for getting them the season’s most buzzed-about multi-cooker or luxe towel set using chalkboard labels that let you claim credit.


Pine Paper + Classic Red Tinsel

Graphic pine branches are as classically Christmas as this red tinsel garland you might choose to circle your present with. Notice how the tinsel mirrors the evergreen’s needles? We liked that, too. Bonus: The red berries are a perfect match for the Smythson diary you’ve tucked inside.


Create-Your-Own Photo Collage Paper + Japanese Washi Tape

This is where we encourage you to really go bespoke, possibly to levels that might be considered just a little over the top — but in the best possible way. Head to Instagram, pick out your favorite shots from the past year and upload them at Zazzle to create customized wrapping paper. Tape it all together creatively with Japanese washi tape. Inside? An equally customized present that you’ve monongramed with your giftee’s initials or a one-of-a-kind photo gift.


Tree Line Paper + Custom Stickers

Wrap up the prettiest cashmere scarf on the market or the most bedazzled iPhone case you can find in this kaleidoscopic winter scene, then seal the deal with festive holiday stickers.


Personalized Holiday Paper + Pom Pom Trim

No labels required with this custom paper decorated with super-cute woodland creatures and your very own name. Tie it up in some equally adorable pom-pom trim ribbon. It’s universal enough to work as perfectly with your well-chosen gift for dad as that teen who's suddenly not so sullen when he unwraps what you've given him.


Marble Gift Bags + Golden Tissue Paper

Paper bags might be the easiest gift wrapping option — but nothing reads lazy about these marbled designs. Stuff them with golden tissue paper and you’ll have finished wrapping that gift for your iffy new boyfriend and for your sometimes picky mom and for your boozy girlfriend — and actually for everyone on your list — in under five minutes (yes, we timed it).
