10 Creative Ways to Wrap Your Presents

10 Creative Ways to Wrap Your Presents

to make the Holidays just that much more special

So you've bought your gift. And it's a great gift, really. It's the best gift. But you want to give your gift a little something extra here are some creative ways to wrap your gift.

1. Crafting Glue

Paint Elmer's glue, or any kind of crafting glue onto a part of your wrapped present and dip it in confetti. Maybe fill in any non-confetti gaps and let it sit for a bit.

2. Wrapping a gift in another gift.

If you're giving someone a scarf or a thin nick kerchief or bandana. Get them something else, something small. Maybe some makeup or a gift card and wrap the smaller gift in the scarf. It'll be a cute way to give someone a gift.

3. Maps.

For this, you can find one at a thrift shop or even use the one that might be in your glove compartment.

4. Newspapers

You can do the same with newspapers.

5. Brown Paper Bags

You could always get plain brown paper gift bags, with or without handles that's all up to you, and decorate them with stamps or draw on them yourself. You can even personalize it too! You could even write on it who it's to and who it's from and you won't even need to add a tag!

6. Patterned Paper.

You can find some patterned paper, it could be craft paper or wrapping paper, sheet music or you could use maps again, and cut out the letters of the name of the person you're planning on giving it to. If you wrapped the present with simple brown paper this could really pop and be a creative alternative to a tag.

7. Sweater.

If you have an old sweater you're ready to part with or you have some cute fabric laying around. This could be sooooo cute. Unfortunately, I have more sweaters than John Watson (if you get that reference you're a good person) and I love them all too much to part with any of them.

8. Make your own paper!

You could draw on your own wrapping paper. This is a really cute idea and a great idea for any last minute wrappers out there. No judging..... promise.

9. Flowers.

Whether you use inexpensive Christmas garland as the ribbon or poke a little flower or piece of holly or pine tree through a bow, adding something floral could be a really cute touch.

10. Use an old shirt!

Or maybe that's part of their gift! You can find the YouTube tutorial here.

These are all good ideas but it is important to remember that it's the thought that counts. So don't worry about the wrapping too much.

Happy Holidays!

7 Spooktacular Ways To Give Your Halloween Pumpkin A Grown-Up Twist By Incorporating Alcohol

Shoutout to my best friend, Pinterest.


As you get older, some people may think they're too old to carve a pumpkin for Halloween. Those people are wrong. First reason: it doesn't matter how old or ~mature~ you get, no one is "too old" for Halloween. Second reason: pumpkin kegs are a thing, so there you go. Here are some creative ways to give your jack o' lanterns a little bit of a "grown-up" twist:

1. The pumpkin keg

This one's for all the beer-lovers out there. What's a more festive way to drink beer than drinking straight out of a pumpkin? Also, Halloween is the only time when it's acceptable to drink beer out of a pumpkin, so if you're into that, why not take advantage of it?

2. Painted pumpkins

Life imitates art? For all the less crafty souls out there, painting a pumpkin is 100x easier than carving, and a lot easier to clean up. Also, this makes for adorable, yet ~spooky~ decorations for your Halloween party.

3. Pumpkin wine dispenser

Slap the pumpkin anyone? If someone walked up to me at a party with a whole ass pumpkin and told me to "slap the bag" my basic girl persona would immediately take over and grab that pumpkin with no questions asked. This is obviously much like the pumpkin keg, but for wine lovers.

4. Pumpkin cooler

Nothing says "Halloween" like chilling your alcohol inside a pumpkin.

5. Pumpkin beer holder

Essentially, the same idea as the pumpkin cooler, but with a different technique.

6. Pumpkin punch bowl

Only the realest Halloween fans would drink straight from a pumpkin.

7. Drunk pumpkins

Creative, yet relatable. This pumpkin is also a good reminder to be responsible with your drinking and not get Halloween wasted.
