This will probably look best white on white, but you could experiment with other colour schemes too. Add a swanky message and you gifts will look the classiest of the lot.

We all know somebody that is going to be getting a lot more wine than other people this Christmas. Why not add Santa’s own personal touch with these cute felt hats and beards? The bottles would’ve been a pain to pack anyway.

Whether you want to use one colour of all the colours, make some crazy lines with threads of yarn and some glue. It’ll add a very sweet homemade feel.

Print out the template, fold accordingly, and tie up with string. It’ll be the cutest gift on the block.

  1. Get buttons involved

What were you going to do with them anyway? Put a thread through some buttons or use one key special button at the heart of your ribbon, this would be especially cool if the gift you’re giving is an article of clothing. 

  1. Think of monsters
