Love this idea for simple, yet beautiful wrapping paper. Hand-drawn snowflakes, Kraft Brown paper, triple-wrapped twine and an evergreen sprig. Try some personalized Avery Labels or Printable Tag to dress up your Christmas gifts.
Wrapping paper is pretty pricey, especially for something that's just going to get ripped up and thrown away. This is a better idea: buy a big roll of butcher paper on the cheap and have the kids help craft some homemade holiday lights gift wrap.
